Summary:

I actually am interested in marine biotechnology and coral conservation!Corals are a group of symbionts that can be reffered to as the lungs of the ocean.The increasing temperatures has greatly affected the coral population and increased the rate of coral bleaching.So its high time to do something for them or we will have to witness a mass extinction ,large groups of organisms ranging from micro to macro level are associated with corals.

Work History

Principal Investigator

Done

December 2013 - May 2014

a project on 'courtship and mating behaviour in the wild population of zebrafishes' under the guidance of Dr Anuradha Bhat at IISER, Kolkata via The INDIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES.The project included Statistical analysis of egg production in females, Food monopolisation experiments and Male aggression experiments.

Recently got selected for Master Thesis at NCBS, Bangalore under the guidance of Dr Axel Brockmann, Principal Investigator, Department of Ecology and Neurobiology.The projectwill be from december 2013-may2014.
Succesfully completed three SET(Science Engineering and Technoloy Conference) projects at VIT university:
1.First semester: Worked on urinary proteomics on how the two proteins THP and Transferrin gets regulated with Urinary Tract infection.Involved techniques like Western blotting, SDS .Second semester: Worked on the characterization of microbial fauna of rat feces focusing on the anaerobic bacteria Oxalobacter formigenes.Involved Streaking, plating, Biochemical characterisation, Blotting and SDS .Third semester:Worked on how saline concentrations alter gene expression of Anti Mullerian Hormone in Danio species, a typical fresh water fish.Involved mating experiments, Experiments to check saline tolerance, Normal PCR, RT PCR
