With the understanding that "DNA is not the destiny", this lab focuses primarily on Epigenetics study from avaried perspective. Epigenetics plays a prime role in diseases susceptibility and differential manifestation, gene-environment interaction, behavioural adaptations and also in therapeutic interventions. Our lab currently focuseson the following research dimensions.
