    About Us

    We are located at School of Computational & Integrative Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi. JNU is a prestigious Indian university, recently ranked at no. 3 in the country as per the Government instituted committee for this purpose. School of Computational and Integrative Sciences is a relatively young institution with JNU with its thrust research areas being Bioinformatics, Complex Systems and Big data analytics. 

    We are interested in developing data-driven algorithms and applications for biological data with an integrative perspective. We aim to leverage on our past and ongoing works in the field of sequence and structural analysis of protein-DNA and other biomolecular interactions, particularly their modelling through machine learning algorithms. We also draw from our experience in studying patterns of global and condition-specific gene expression, miRNA and NGS data analysis for Intestinal Bowel Syndrome, Influenza vaccination response, Uni-parental disomy and other critical problems in the field of Biomedical research. 
    Our technical research interests are in machine learning, big data analytics and novel architectures and training methods for deep learning through neural networks

    As a Principal Investigator of this group: Science, poetry and pretentious thinking are all my passions, of which I chose the first as a profession. I do science for the artist's vanity and a decent career it can paradoxically combine to offer. It is delusional enough to make me lose sight of the trivial world, and useful enough so I can pay my bills and lead a happy life. This website is a public and semi-personal portal, to advertise myself and my group (under development) and put together a summary of our achievements in the course of our random walk across the beautiful and unusual forays offered by our deliberate and chance encounters with knowledge.
