NEWS AND HIGHLIGHTS

  • As part of the “Advancement in Genomics, Proteomics to Drug Discovery & Development associated with Neurological Disorders” workshop conducted by NIMHANS, Bengaluru, between Feb 5-8, 2020, IBAB faculty Dr. Kshitish Acharya and Dr. S. Thiyagarajan conducted several training sessions. The forty PhD students who participated in the course were from different parts of India and were trained in NGS genomic data analysis by Dr. Acharya and in bioinformatic protein sequence analysis by Dr. Thiyagarajan.

  • To explore the history and culture of Karnataka, IBAB faculty members Dr. Shruthi Vembar, Dr. Gaurav Sharma and Dr. Shivakumara accompanied around 65 IBAB students and research scholars on weekend trip (Feb 7-9, 2020) to Hampi, a UNESCO world heritage site and the capital of the ertswhile Vijayanagara empire. The students had a rich cultural experience, soaking in the beauty of Hampi, and at the same time, they managed to let their hair down in the midst of a rigorous academic semester! 

  • Hot off the press! On Feb 18, 2020, Dr. Shubhada Hegde’s team published their work in BMC Genomics. Titled “Genome-wide identification of the context-dependent sRNA expression in Mycobacterium tuberculosis”, the article describes the development of a novel sliding window-based approach to computationally identify small RNAs in the pathogenic bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis based on RNA-seq and ChIP-seq patterns. The authors suggest that several of these small RNAs may play an important role to rewire regulatory circuits of the pathogen in a growth condition-specific manner.
