Himanshu Sharma
Graduate Student (PhD)

Himanshu had done B.Tech (Biotech) from ACE & AR (Kurukshetra University). His areas of interest are proteomics and transcriptomics. He believes that using “sacred” tools of protein and RNA structural analysis we can decipher the complex yet omnipresent, codes of our biological systems.


K. N. R. Yoganand
Graduate Student (PhD)

Yoganand had done B.Tech (Industrial Biotech) from Dr.M.G.R.Deemed University  and M.Tech from NIT Rourkela. He joined our PhD program in 2011. He is interested in decoding the mechanism of  molecular recognition in protein-RNA interaction. [k.yoganand[at]*]
