Hey there! I am Subrata and I come from Mumbai! I was a partial microbial evolution enthusiast until I turned into a full blown one post joining the BEE lab at IISc. 

My work in lab revolves around understanding the ways by which population bottlenecks lead to interesting consequences in genetic drift and natural selection in the predatory bacterium Myxococcus xanthus!

I let my thoughts sway away in Indian epics, anthropological thrillers , and philosophy when not entangled in evolution.

Feel free to drop me an email with all sorts of questions you might have!

P.S : BEE lab welcomes and enjoys amazing food like no other lab I have been in before.
