Workshop on Proteogenomics, October 28 - 31, 2013
Dr. Krishnamohan Atmakuri Ph.D., obtained his Ph.D. degree in Biotechnology from the Madurai Kamaraj University, Madurai, India.  His first postdoctoral training was at the University of Texas, Health Science Center, Houston, USA in the Department of Microbiology and Molecular genetics where he deciphered several molecular mechanisms behind the functioning of the type IV secretion system of Agrobacterium tumefaciens.  Subsequently he moved to Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard University, Boston, USA to work with the type VII secretion system of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.  Currently he is an Assistant Professor at Translational Health Science Technology Institute, Haryana, India. His current study is on understanding host-pathogen interactions using Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Acinetobacter baumannii as model systems.

Dr. K. P. Ramesha Ph.D.,   obtained  B.V.Sc. and M.V.Sc. degrees from the Veterinary College, University of Agriculture Sciences, Bangalore.  He obtained Ph.D. degree from NDRI, Karnal in 1991 for his work on sperm chromosomes of bovines. He worked from 1991 to 2004 at NDRI, Karnal and Bangalore in the area of embryo biotechnology and livestock genomics. During the period 2004-09 he worked at NRC on Yak, Dirang, Arunachal Pradesh and contributed for understanding of yak genetics and breeding for which he was awarded Fakrudhin Ali Ahmed Award by ICAR, New Delhi. Since February 2010 he is working as Principal Scientist  at southern campus of NDRI in the area of bovine genomics. He has successfully completed 19 research projects funded by DBT, NATP, Karnataka Government  and NDDB. His current area of research includes livestock genomics, innate immunity and  IPR issues.


Dr. Ranjana Pal Ph.D., obtained her Ph.D. degree in Life Sciences from the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. She was a postdoctoral researcher in the McGill University, Montreal, Canada. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor at Presidency University, Kolkata. Her research interests include biomarkers study for early detection of breast cancer, target identification for therapeutic intervention and identification of signaling pathways affected in drug resistant tumors. Also in integration of multiplatform data sets collected from tissue samples obtained from individual patients.


Ravinder Kumar obtained his M.Sc. degree in Biotechnology from the Indian Institute of Technology (IITB), Bombay. Currently, he is pursuing his Ph.D. degree at IITB. His thesis work involves comparative proteomic analysis of budding yeast under-going mitosis and meisois to identify proteins which express differentially in these two type of cell cycles.
