Brief Bio:
Sucheta started her research career as a CSIR JRF at the Center for Plant Molecular Biology, Hyderabad, where she worked on Genetic Transformation of Indian Cotton Cultivars. Subsequently, being influenced by friends and family, she took up PGDST at NCST (an independent R &D unit under Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt. Of India, now cDAC). She took up a job as a programmer for a month followed by 2 jobs in Bioinformatics start ups for a couple of years. In 2002 she moved to Virginia Bioinformatics Institute  at the Virginia Tech. There she worked extensively on all aspects of microbial genomics, transcriptomics and Bioinformatics. In August 2012, she came back to India and joined Indian Institute of Chemical Biology as a Scientist and Ramalingaswamy Fellow. Her favorite pass time is Gardening, Zumba, Yoga, Playing chess. She is also author of popular blog genome-array. 

Research Interests:
Biomedical Informatics, Genomes and transcriptome sequencing of indigenous Indian Micro flora, Algorithm and software development for bioinformatics.

Mayuri Mukherjee

Brief Bio:

Mayuri has joined this lab as a CSIR JRF on August, 2015. She did her B.Sc (Honours) in Botany from Presidency College, Kolkata and her Masters, that also in Botany from University of Delhi.  She is dealing with the biochemical properties of few cyanobacteria having great potential to be used as biofuel producers. Recently she has started exploring into the field of bioinformatics as cyanobacterial transcriptome perspective. She is obsessed with Bengali literature and often dreams of owning a house packed with Bengali story books.

Gyan has done B.Pharm from Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences(MCOPS), Manipal and currently Pursuing M.S(Pharm) in Pharmacoinformatics at NIPER-kolkata. He has joined the lab as project trainee. He is good badminton and carom player.

Akash Gupta


Brief Bio:
Akash has completed his MTech. at the Indian Institute of Engineering Science & Technology, Shibpur. He is also working at the Director's cell at IICB as a programmer. Genome Unified Schema has been widely used world wide and is very robust, but the Oracle framework of this database limits its usage. Especially in developing countries, paying for the license fees every year makes it an expansive option. The present database is based on GUS schema. Akash will remodel GUS and alter the schema with all the plugins, so that it runs on mysql. Akash favorite passtime is to read novels and blog and I see him online most of the time:) He is also a spelling bee champion and a math whiz.
