About me

I am currently in my final semester of B.Tech(ICT) at DA-IICT, Gandhinagar. In the past year I have had the opportunity to work in the field of computational biology. Currently affiliated to Gupta Lab, I have been working on my B.Tech Project under the supervision of Prof.Manish K. Gupta in enumerating DNA Codes that avoid secondary structure formation under Hamming distance.

I did my schooling from Army School Ambala in Haryana, India. I am interested in exploring new fields of biological research. I am an avid quizzer and have a keen interest in history, businesses, football and movies.

Research Interests

Computational Biology, Error Correction Codes, Object Oriented Programming, Distributed Computing.

  • Rahul Bhaskar: DNA Word Design. B Tech Project Technical Report DA-IICT 2007, Currently in Progress

    The Design of DNA sequences is one of the most important research topics in the field of DNA Computing. Several algorithmic approaches have been used to maximize the number of sequences obtained from the alphabet {A, C, G, T } that satisfy different combinatorial constraints with varying results. In this project, I consider the problem of designing DNA codewords with constant GC content that avoid secondary structure formations. The codes shall be enumerated using the stochastic local search algorithm and the template design method and a comparative study would be done based on the runtime of the methods and the quality of results obtained.
