While neuroscience groups have been tackling new dimensions to crunch data for solving neurological conditions, an effort that seems promising for neurological disorders is computational neuroscience. In an effort to understand the brain's disease conditions from a functional role,the computational neuroscience and neurophysiology lab at Amrita University's School of Biotechnology has been developing computer models based on experimental data of neurons and neural circuits. As neurological diseases have a basis with neural and circuit behavior, these models help understand how certain disabling molecular mechanisms explain clinical conditions and how applying certain drug molecules change functioning conditions. Due to complexity, the group uses stochastic differential equations and supercomputing techniques including CPU and GPGPU programming methods to solve large-scale simulations.

Every week Nature India hand-picks a selection of papers that might be of interest or relevance to the scientific community in the region.  In this regard, researchers at the Amrita School of Biotechnology (ASBT), Amrita University, were thrilled to find that their work which was recently published in the USA based journal Bioorganic Chemistry (Kalyanvenkatraman S. et al, 66, 72-79, 2016) was the research pick of the week in Nature India.  The research which identified that the triterpenoid natural product Arjunolic acid, isolated from the plant Terminalia arjuna, inhibits the activity of Carbonic Anhydrase 2, an enzyme linked to cardiac hypertrophy, was carried out by a Ph.D student, Ms. Subhalakshmi Kalyanvenkatraman, under the guidance of Dr. Geetha Kumar, Professor, Amrita School of Biotechnology.

An expert in the field of fermentation technology and a Professor Emeritus from the M.S. University of Baroda, Dr. Avinash Shah, has spent the week of March 16, 2016, at Amrita School of Biotechnology (ASBT), teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students. As an Adjunct Faculty, Dr. Shah is a familiar face at ASBT and the department shares great joy and gratitude for each of his visits to the school. Along with his enlightening lectures, Dr. Shah also spoke to the students and faculty about his work in microbial fermentation during a seminar on March 16th. His talk focused on his research concerning the characterization, production, and application of bioadhesin and biofilm properties of Bacillus megaterium ADE-0-1. Most adhesives in the market are made synthetically and are often toxic and non-degradable. Many bacteria secrete exopolysaccharides (EPS) in order to stick to one another to form biofilms. This property of certain bacteria was utilized by Dr.

Despite its decline worldwide, tuberculosis is still one of the most prevalent diseases in India. There is a pressing need to combat this pathogen since it is notorious in developing resistance, both to individual and combinations of antibiotics commonly used in treating tuberculosis. During this week’s invited talk at Amrita School of Biotechnology (ASBT), Dr. Kanury Rao shared his insights with the students and faculty about his groundbreaking work on the host-pathogen interplay between human macrophages infected with M. tuberculosis and the subsequent application of this research to drug discovery.
