My projects are aimed towards understanding stereochemistry of proteins and peptides and applications to protein structure determination and validation. I am also particularly interested in studying functionally important strained conformations found in proteins.

I am attempting to use protein like artificial sequences to bridge the gap between sequence and structural domains. Using the design strategy developed in our lab, artificial protein like sequences, intermediately relating SCOP families were generated in an attempt towards remote homology detection. In an attempt to give structural cues for sequence families without structural information I am employing designed sequences in my study. I am also, interested in studying the energy landscape of these artificial sequences and whether they adopt the fold of the parent SCOP families. Future prospects involve, exploring the unchartered fold space using both the undirected and directed sequence design approaches developed in the group.

I am working on developing computational methods for detecting remote homologues of proteins. To gain better insights into the protein structure and function, I study evolutionary relationships between protein families, superfamilies and folds through large-scale data analysis using high performance computing clusters.

Understanding the functional relevance of asymmetry in heterodimeric proteins. Symmetric form often confers stability and prevalent in oligomeric proteins but mild pertubation from symmetry will be essential for dynamic functions.

The questions addressed by me, revolve around modular interactions involving both protein-protein interactions as well as domain-domain interactions. The first project focused on the evolution of interface of proteases-inhibitor complexes. The second project revolves around the structural changes associated with the absence of tethered domain in multi-domain proteins.
