M.Phil. dissertation :" Application of Nucleic Acid Hybridization to the diagnosis of Tuberculosis"

Ph.D. Thesis: " Organization and structure of ribosomal ribonucleic acid genes in Entamoebae histolytica. "

Post-Doctoral Fellowship: I spent a few years at The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Bethesda, Maryland, USA. I joined a laboratory to work on a intestinal nematode parasite of humans called Strongyloides stercoralis.

The Genomics Programme: After my brief post-doctoral period I returned to India to join the then Centre for Biochemical Technology now re-christened Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology to join the genomics programme. It was a new and exciting venture.
