Current Research Interest

Macromolecular Interaction: Recognition and Engineering :

  • Structural basis of regulation of gene expression (transcription)
  • Structural basis of cognate-non cognate discrimination during aminoacylation in E.coli
  • Structural basis and role of macromolecular interactions in viral life cycles (HCV and Chandipura virus)
  • Engineering novel transcription factors

Drug development :

  • Designing peptidometics against protein-protein interaction
  • Drug discovery from natural sources
