I am working at the Laboratory of Natural Information Processing at DAIICT, as a researcher with Professor Manish K Gupta. I have finished B Tech (ICT) at Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology. I am looking forward to dig deep in the field of Computational Biology and complete a PhD in the respective field. For the past eight months, I am also working as a software engineer in a technology start-up, Taxila Lab Info Services Pvt. Ltd, Bangalore.
I was born and brought up in Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh, India. My interests include my research work, cricket and movies.
My primay interest is in the field of Computer Algorithms and their applications in Life Sciences. I am curently looking at RNA secondary structure design problem. In a recent work, I have designed a new representation for Pseudoknotted RNA Secondary Structures. I am intrested in creating a classification of these structures by comparing these new representations.
Classification of RNA secondary Structures has been achieved using different approaches but all these approaches either do not describe the structure in detail or exclude Psuedoknotted secondary structures. In this project we propose a new representation for RNA secondary structures that includes pseudoknotted structures using a Graph Theoretic Approach and takes into account all the relevant information from the structure, hence being more descriptive and much better for comparative analysis. We have successfully applied this representation to most of the structures listed in the standard databases like Pseudo base and the Nucleic Acid Database. We have also written a Cost Matrix for comparing the graphical representations.
