The Applied Genomics and Biotechnology Lab employs molecular biology techniques for genomic and proteomics analysis and develops and designs lab-on-a-chip systems for biomedical applications. Specific focus areas of research activities include studies of the role of methylation and microRNA-mediated epigenetic regulation of DNA repair proteins.The lab also develops integrated lab-on-a-chip methods and technologies for detection and analysis of DNA, microRNAs, proteins, and antibodies. The students working in the lab participate in advanced interdisciplinary biotechnology related scientific research and acquire skills and experiences that prepare them for careers in the academia, pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry.
