||Deepesh AGARWAL recently completed Master of Technology and Bachelor of
Technology in Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology under the dual
degree program at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi, India. I
did a summer internship at INRA, Nantes, France where I studied the
thermal denaturation of one of the milk proteins, beta-lactoglobulin
and the work is published in Journal of Agricultural and food
Chemistry ( 2009, 57, 4974-4982 ). I was a summer trainee at Research
Innovation labs, TCS, Hyderabad where I worked on structure-function
relationship of a malarial parasite protein using Molecular Dynamics
simulation of protein. My final year thesis work was on development of
reliable tool for Eukaryotic Gene prediction based on physico-chemical
properties of DNA. My research interests include Mathematical modeling
of Biological systems from Systems Biology perspective.
