Mitali will be joining Prakash Lab, Stanford University in summer 2021 to broadly be working with their gravity machine team; exploring how biological cells detect pressure and orient towards gravity, showing extremes gravitaxis behavior in open ocean during vertical field migrations. She will also be engaged in efforts to enable CRISPR based gene editing in marine organisms to enable new tools to study fundamental biological questions in collective cellular dynamics.
My interests are in the areas of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Through the prestigious Khorana program, I am potentially placed at Stanford University under the supervision of Dr. Julia Salzman. My project would explore the questions in the circular RNA field using single-cell RNA-seq analysis.
