Myself Anuj Srivastava, a graduate student (PhD Bioinformatics Candidate) in the Institute of Bioinformatics. I am working under the guidance of Dr. Russell L. Malmberg. My Broad research interests include evolutionary analysis of ncRNA secondary structures and developing a machine learning based approach for the identification of the same. Besides this, I analyze genomic/transcriptomic data obtained from different species using comparative genomics based methods to tackle questions of potential interest. I am part of RNA Informatics group and Gerogia Genomics Facility at UGA.
