I am a graduate student at the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research at Bangalore, India. I work on understanding the structure-function relationship of 5′-nucleotidases. I have been trained in areas of protein purification, structural biology and enzyme kinetics. I would love to work with proteins that challenge the norms of molecular evolution and attempt to understand their unique features that fill the gaps in our understanding of the subject.

If you work in the field of molecular biology, there is hardly a day that goes by that you don’t use nucleotides. But beyond the use of the four well-known deoxynucleotides in PCR, you can use nucleotides for several other applications. For example, kinases and phosphatases use nucleotides as substrates, and phosphotransferases transfer phosphate group…
