    Bio I am Dr. Sameera Peraramelli, a PhD graduate in Biochemistry at University of Maastricht, the Netherlands. I hail from Indian which is culturally very rich. I did my schooling in Delhi and bachelors in biochemistry at Delhi University which is one of the most prestigeous universities in India. After my bachelors I went to the number one research institute of India, Indian Institute of Science for my masters in Biological sciences. After successful completion of my masters I moved to Netherlands to pursue my PhD. I published 5 first author papers during my PhD and received awards for scientific excellence and young investigator award. I have presented my work during my masters and PhD at national and international level. I now joined the reputed Stanford university for my postdoctoral research.

    Bio Research statement:
    My major fields of interest are computational biology and bioinformatics, coupled with the passion for the next-generation sequencing technologies, and a profound scientific interest in genomics, transcriptomics, regulation of gene expression, specificity of binding of transcription factors to the genome, histone modifications, nucleosome positioning, long-range genomic interactions and compartmentalization of the genome. My research lies on the frontier of the contemporary computational genomics, with the emphasis on development and testing of scripts and algorithms for the analysis of human genome and transcriptome. My focus is the improvement of methods for the various applications of the next generation sequencing, such as chromatin - immunoprecipitation sequencing or ChIP-Seq, RNA-sequencing or RNA-Seq, and probing open chromatin, DNase-Seq/ATAC-Seq, in order to answer key biological question that will ultimately help us understand better the underlying mechanisms of life. As a postdoc at Stanford?s Cardiovascular Institute, I am elucidating complex networks of interactions of transcription factors in human cardiac and vascular tissues, and molecular mechanisms that explain how cardiovascular disease risk-associated genomic loci confer disease risk. I am also employing allele specific computational pipelines to the existing next generation sequencing techniques, i.e. ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq, in combination with the generation of eQTL data for human arterial smooth muscle cells (primary cell type of atherosclerotic lesions) to identify the causal variants that underlie disease susceptibility. In addition, I am modeling vascular SMC tissue-specific open chromatin with ATAC-Seq and DNase-Seq to understand the underlying mechanisms for cardiovascular disease causal variants. I am also active as a blogger, started a blog and continually post UNIX and R related tips and resolve computational problems that can be applied to genomics.
