Welcome to Sundar Lab
Bioinformatics, Computational Genomics, Genome Engineering & Synthetic Biology
The long term goal of our group is to understand DNA-protein interactions to evolve DNA-binding specificity in proteins and to make highly specific custom-designed proteins for various applications in Genome Engineering.
The current areas of focus include: (a) rational design of zinc finger proteins (ZFPs) for genome editing (b) Cellular targets involved in the anticancer effects of Ashwagandha (c) Metabolic Engineering.
We use both computational and wet-lab experimental approaches in close collaboration with several groups in India and abroad.
