Lakshminarayan M Iyer


I received my PhD in plant virology and pursue problems in evolutionary biology. My primary research contributions and interests are in the fields of protein evolution and classification, genome evolution, protein biochemistry and functional predictions, and organismal biology.

Main areas of research:
* Protein evolution and classification.
Identifying trends in genome evolution.
* Prediction of novel biochemical activities and biological functions of proteins.
* Using comparative sequence and genome analysis to make inferences on organismal biology
* Understanding the forces of evolution that shape protein domain diversity.
