Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has performed biochemical research in the past 20 years and published 18 research papers, primarily involving DNA and protein molecule based basic research. His experience has given him the confidence to design, develop, interpret, and publish the experiments and their results based on routine research methodology.

biochemical research





Expert has performed genetic recombinants to develop new hybrid molecules. These genetic modifications confer unique physical properties to genes and their protein counterparts. These unique properties would be eventually used for their identification, isolation and purification.

genetic engineering


protein engineering

Expert has used a standard molecular biological approach to develop many recombinant proteins and enzymes. He has also characterized them by either standard methods or by introducing modifications in the existing methods.

molecular biology

Expert is an expert in dealing with any protein-based methodology. He has published a unique modification of the Western blotting technique in the Journal of Immunological Methods. Western blotting is the confirmatory test used in the identification of HIV-infected individuals. He has the expertise to handle and/or advise on the structural and functional characteristics of proteins.

protein biochemistry


protein characterization


protein isolation

Expert is an expert in protein purification and downstream characterization. He has applied affinity, ion exchange, and gel filtration column chromatography to purify many proteins for clients including Sigma Chemical Co., USBiological, Roche Molecular Biochemicals and Tranzyme. He has developed and/or modified standard operating protocols for these clients.
