  • Our most recent seminar speaker was Dr. Rohini Garg, Assistant Professor at Shiv Nadar University, UP, India, who spoke about “Studying plant environment interaction through the lens of epigenomics”. Dr. Rohini’s team uses bisulfite sequencing to characterize DNA methylation patterns that regulate plant responses to abiotic stresses, particularly of rice and chickpea. The engaging talk was followed by an interactive discussion session.

  • Prof. S. Thiyagarajan, along with collaborators from CSIR-CDRI, Lucknow, Indai, has published a study in the Journal of Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics titled  “Dietary factors and SARS-CoV-2 contagion: in silico studies on modulation of viral and host proteins by spice actives”. Congratulations to the authors!Link:

  • Prof. Bibha Choudhary and IBAB PhD student Sagar Desai, along with collaborators from IISc, Bengaluru, India, have published a study in Cell Reports. Titled “MicroRNA miR-29c regulates RAG1 expression and modulates V(D)J recombination during B cell development”, the authors used a combination of cell and systems biology approaches to establish miR-29c as a potential biomarker and therapeutic target for cancers such as leukemia. Congratulations to the authors!Link:
