Research Interests

 

   · To develop an integrated view of molecular basis of life using Systems Biology approaches;

 

   · Signal transducing pathways and sub-networks and dynamic regulatory subnetworks as a response to a perturbation in yeast as a model system;

 

   · Epistatic interactions in yeast under different nutritional conditions;

 

   · Identification of functional modules in yeast and humans with an ultimate goal of understanding multifactorial diseases;

 

   · Rational design strategies to construct industrially important microorganisms for the development of new products and/ or improved processes;

 

   · Developments of novel tools and algorithms to analyze and integrate different omics;
