Sanghita Banerjee

Postdoctoral researcher

I am a computational biologist and interested in unveiling biological questions hidden in big data through implementation of computaional algorithms.

About me

In my earlier postdoctoral positions, I gained knowledge in the systems biology of gut, and inflammation-associated diseases like Crohn's and Colitis. I developed proficieny in handling and analysing different forms of NGS datasets including bulk RNAseq, single-cell, ATACseq and spatial transcriptomics data. 

Research description

Presently I am working towards classifying the different subtypes of enteric neurons and their transcriptional regulators in maintaining the gut homeostasis.
