- Metagenomics of Extreme Environments supplemented with Comparative Genomics -

Metagenomic analysis of hexachlorocyclohexane contaminated environments (soil, sediment and water) has been done. We have been able to resolve the taxonomical and functional dynamics of enriched, yet un-cultivated microbial communities using amplicon based and shotgun sequencing data (3.2 Gbp). Using paired end assembled and validated downstream analysis we have reconstructed various genotypes (near complete plasmids and draft genomes) corresponding to their pangenomic abundance. Our future projects (in the pipeline) are targeting the community genomics of hot spring at Manikaran, Himachal Pradesh, India. For details please see
