Jyotsna interned at Tulane University, in the department of Tropical medicine. My work is on the malarial vaccines. In this project she was studying the cross reactivity of two malarial antigens respectively from P.vivax and P. falciparum.The sequence similarity found via bioinformatics tools, was the foundation of this research. Now via western blotting, Immunofluorescence assay, ELISA and mammalian transfection techniques they were trying to see their epitope cross reactivity. Also, she was planning to study some epigenetic techniques.
