Aedes aegypti, dengue, insects


Research Focus:

My work focuses on insect genetics and genomics. My primary interests are on functional and evolutionary genomics of vector competence of Aedes aegypti to dengue virus infection. Other specific areas of interest are 1) Comparative genomics, 2) Transcriptomics 3) Codon bias and translational selection, 4) Mitochondria and Numt, 5) Transposable elements and repeat sequences, 6) Non-coding RNAs, 7) Genome sequencing and analysis, and genome-wide association studies.
