Expertise

  • Different cell cultures for example H295R human adrenocortical cell line, 293FT cell line, HT1080 human fibrosarcoma CCL-12 cell line, and HeLa CCL-2 cell line.
  • Molecular biological techniques such as construction of plasmids overexpressing the desired genes using the GATEWAY™ Cloning Technology (Invitrogen, USA), gene knockdown by RNA interference, gene sequencing, sequencing data analysis (Artemis, Chromas, BioEdit, ClustalX, GeneDoc, MEGA etc), site-directed mutagenesis, quantitative real time PCR, electroporation of miRNA (Neon, Invitrogen), Luciferase reporter assay, SDSPAGE and Western blotting and most importantly transduction of H295R cells with lentivirus.
  • Involved with several important projects at ICDDR,B specifically isolation of Vibrio Cholerae from clinical samples with CDC and the epidemiology and ecology of V. Cholerae in the Southern part of Bangladesh with NIH.
