”The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education” ~ Albert Einstein



A PhD in Systems Biology from Aalborg University, Denmark., Prashanth N Suravajhala went on to gain more than 8 years of postdoctoral experience across four different laboratories. Prash worked for Birla Institute of Scientific Research, Jaipur on his return to India where he successfully led three projects in the areas of systems genomics of rare diseases and next generation sequencing analysis of cancers and diabetes. He has interests exploring the known unknown regions in the animal/human genomes, primarily working on the top-down systems biology approaches of hypothetical proteins. Over the last eight years, he has developed an interest in long noncoding RNAs in humans, elucidating the mechanisms underpinning small molecular interactions through clinical exomes. His group has benchmarked pipelines and developed methods for systems genomic integration. He has over 90 publications in peer-reviewed journals and edited 3 books. He strongly advocates open access and open science.

Systems Genomics Lab

I am a group leader of Systems Genomics laboratory at Amrita School of Biotechnology, Amrita Vishwavidyapeetham, Kerala, India. Our group is curious to know how of a biology of a system with special interests to study protein-protein interactions and top-down systems biology of hypothetical proteins, long noncoding RNAs in human, focusing on next generation sequencing sequencing approaches to identify regulatory aspects of the genome. A larger interests have been into elucidating the known unknown mechanisms underpinning small molecular interactions through clinical exomes. Apart from this, we have had intermittently worked on identifying the candidate genes involved in synthetic framework in bacteria and viruses.
