Sanghita Banerjee

Postdoctoral researcher

I am a bioinformatician and interested in unveiling biological questions hidden in big data through the implementation of computaional tools.

About me

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

Research description

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

Education

I obtained my Bachelor's in Genetics and Master's in Bioinformatics. After that I completed my PhD from Indian Statistical Institute (Kolkata, India) in 2018.
