I am Bharat Mishra, a graduate student in the Department of Biology, UAB under the mentorship of Dr. Shahid Mukhtar. I joined UAB in Spring 2017 and working on dynamics of Arabidopsis transcriptional regulatory networks. My research interests are Sequence analysis, non-coding RNAs and Network Systems Biology.

I started my Bioinformatics studies as a major in my bachelor’s degree (2008-2012) from SRM University, Chennai (INDIA) and worked on database development as my final year project “ANIMED: Marine Animal Medicinal Database”. Afterwards, I graduated with master’s degree “Master of Technology, Information Technology (Specialization in Bioinformatics)” in 2015 from Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad (INDIA) with GATE scholarship. My Master’s thesis was entitled “Alignment free method for finding homologous nucleotide sequences and its application in phylogenetic study” under the supervision of Professor Tapobrata Lahiri (Head, Department of Applied Science, IIIT Allahabad). I implemented Perl and matlab extensively during thesis work.

I joined NBPGR, New Delhi (INDIA) in October, 2015 as Junior Research Fellow in bioinformatics under Dr. Yasin Jeshima Khan for Project: “Development of short duration, early maturing, high yielding and biotic/abiotic stress tolerant Pigeonpea varieties: Indo-Swiss collaboration in Biotechnology (ISCB). I worked in non-coding RNAs bioinformatics. Here, I developed my interest in Plant bioinformatics and pursued my research in plants.
