Department of Biophysics

The department offers research opportunities in the areas of structural biology, bioinformatics, membrane biology and neurobiophysics (cognitive science) in general. The main research emphasis of the Department is in the area of theoretical biology and membrane biophysics e.g. ion channels and neurobiophysics. A special emphasis is given on learning, memory and computational neuroscience. The Department is equipped with electrophysiological set up (patch clamp and bilayer systems), which are the most sensitive tools to study such channels. The experimental work is supported by extensive mathematical and computational analysis, e.g. Mathematical modelling, Neural Network. Other areas of active research are: enzymatic modulation of ion channel, e.g. phosphorylation, biological spectroscopy. The objective of structural biology work is to understand the structure-function-evolution relationship in proteins from various organisms, particularly extremophiles using various biophysical techniques like CD spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. The department is also involved in research in the areas of metagenomics and molecular modelling. The thrust area of bioinformatics is genome and protein sequence analysis particularly in relation to function
