Our Research

Below are our main area of research interest

  • Prediction of DNA regulatory elements such as nucleosome, origin of replications, transcription start sites and promoter.
  • Designing computational method to predict post-transcriptional (RNA) modification sites, RNA subcellular localization and RNA splicing.
  • Designing computational method to predict post-replication (DNA) modification sites.
  • Developing machine learning methods to identify protein function and type.
  • Developing machine learning methods to identify peptide therapeutic function.
  • Simulation of biomolecular systems.
