Ganapathi Varma Saripella


I work on NGS data-sets, currently focusing on RNA-seq differential expression analysis, annotation and eQTL analysis. I have also worked on few other closely related fields such as WGS, proteomics, sequence analysis and data-mining. My basic interest is to apply these bioinformatic techniques to the complex diseases and for sustainable food production.
