Currently, DNA structure, chromatin modification and regulation of gene expression interest me. I would also like to learn more in the areas of protein structural analysis and RNA processing. Participating in this program gives me an excellent opportunity to further my knowledge in my areas of interest and explore many new exciting areas of research, something which I am eagerly looking forward to.
