Molecular Genetics Group

Research group of Prof. Shomi Bhattacharya in London, United Kingdom.

Methodology

  • Microsatellite markers and 10-1 Million SNP chip analysis for linkage and association studies,
  • bioinformatics based positional cloning approach for identification of disease genes
  • functional genomic characterisation of the mutant gene using cellular and molecular biology based procedures
  • DNA sequencing
  • site directed mutagenesis
  • cell transfection
  • immunolocalisation
  • histochemical techniques and Western blotting
