My lab at NCBS, Bangalore aims to understand how bacteria use RNAs to sense and respond to their environment; how RNAs create the structural diversity required of sensory molecules and how we can learn from nature to develop useful sensory and regulatory modules. We use a combination of X-ray crystallography, RNA-protein biochemistry, biophysical, bioinformatic and in vivo approaches to answer these questions.

We have open JRF positions for students with an interest in
RNA biochemistry and structure. Students with a biochemistry
and microbiology background are strongly preferred.
