I am a dedicated Scientist-I at Garuda Therapeutics, where I specialize in computational biology and genomics within the R&D department. My work primarily revolves around developing and optimizing pipelines for variant calling using Strelka2 and GATK4 with Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) to identify oncogenes in human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). This involves extensive work in the qualification and validation of these pipelines for regulatory filings, as well as leveraging databases such as ClinVar, COSMIC, and DepMap to craft targeted oncogenes panels for deep sequencing. I also apply Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) for downstream sequencing to validate CRISPR knockouts, including the identification and validation of CRISPR off-targets using techniques like rhAMPseq and Induce-seq. Additionally, my expertise extends to single-cell sequencing analysis and understanding structural variants with Optical Genome Mapping (Bionano). Prior to joining Garuda Therapeutics, I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in computational biology at Pennsylvania State University, where I honed my skills in identifying climate-adaptive variants and conducted Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) to uncover resistance genes against parasites and other stressors. My academic journey began at the University of Vermont, where I explored abiotic stress resistance genes using transcriptomics and developed a robust understanding of RNA-seq data analysis, from assembly to gene annotation. My work is driven by a passion for leveraging computational and genomics tools to address pressing challenges in biology and healthcare, combining my rigorous academic training with a practical, solution-oriented approach to research and development.

They can collaborate to develop genetically modified organisms (GMOs) with improved traits, such as higher crop yields, disease resistance, or enhanced production of biofuels. This collaboration can lead to the development of sustainable and innovative solutions.

Crop Improvement and Agriculture

Agricultural companies can collaborate with Molecular Biology experts to improve crop traits, such as drought tolerance, pest resistance, and nutritional content. By understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying these traits, companies can develop genetically improved crops that are more resilient and nutritious, contributing to food security and sustainable agriculture.

Environmental Sciences and Remediation

Companies involved in environmental sciences and remediation can collaborate with Molecular Biology researchers to develop innovative solutions for pollution control, bioremediation, and waste management. By harnessing the power of molecular biology techniques, companies can identify and engineer microorganisms capable of degrading pollutants and cleaning up contaminated environments.

Personalized Medicine and Diagnostics

Molecular Biology experts can contribute to the field of personalized medicine by collaborating with companies to develop molecular diagnostic tests and targeted therapies. By analyzing an individual's genetic makeup and molecular markers, companies can provide personalized treatment options and improve patient outcomes.
