Dengue vaccine project

The aim of this project is to design the nucleic acid vaccines against dengue. We have screened and sequenced 1000 and 350 Dengue NS1 positive clinical samples respectively.  From these sequences, we know that dengue viral strains in India have mutations in the antigenic region as compared to globally circulating Dengue viruses.

I’ve also worked in the Indo-African pathogen sequencing project, with the aim of capacity building in Africa. We did Oxford Nanopore based sequencing and phylogenetic analysis of antimicrobial-resistant clinical isolates of Neisseria gonorrhoea to identify the genes responsible for antimicrobial resistance.
