Recent topics of Research

This is the times of thousands of genomes. We are interested in comprative genomics to unravel the mysteries of varying tropism in pathogens, host-pathogen dynamics and disease modelling in complex diseases. We will be using open source platforms like R although we are not entirely glued to it.


Present position

Srinivasan Ramachandran, Ph.D. Principal Scientist

Born, Chennai, April 14, 1963

Education After completing my B.Sc. degree in Chemistry Honours from St. Xavier’s College, University of Calcutta, I joined Jawaharlal Nehru University for M.Sc. in Biotechnology. During this time I had an aptitude for computers that flowed automatically. I completed my Ph.D. in 1993.

We follow the motto

“Whatever we do, we do it thoroughly and describe it in such a way that it is reproduced as such in others hands”


I regularly subscribe and read Reader’s Digest. I like music, especially soft pop and Smooth Jazz. I have one son and a loving and caring wife. I learnt from other’s experience that one who enjoys working and delivering without clinging is true leadership. The Thiruvalluvar Kural is very appropriate here:

Cling to the one who does not cling Then Clinging ceases to cling

Here is my own prayer I offer,

How many secrets you have locked in, My Lord

As I dig, I find more and more and more,

It never seems to end, pulling me into infinitum

Such is the vastness of your creation, My Lord

It is beautiful, it is ugly, it is rough, it is smooth,

It is big, it is small, it is all in ONE

Alas! My life is so short

That I can only do a tiny bit

Of size equal to a grain of sand

Then, why My Lord I should stake a claim?

I therefore, shed the ’I’ in me and submit to Thee
