Text Mining & NLP analysis of SARS-CoV-2

Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2): A 50-200 nm virion with a genome size of approximately 30000 nucleotides paused the normal and routine activities of the world by being the causative agent of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Several questions came flooding when I started to know more about this novel coronavirus. The researcher in … Continue reading “Text Mining & NLP analysis of SARS-CoV-2”

Demystifying the odd base conundrum

The picture above has a lot of beads and their colors are primarily shades of blue or pink. But clearly, there is one orange bead that stands out making a difference. In the same way, our DNA is a stitch and stretch of 4 primary chemical beads (bases)- Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Guanine (G), and … Continue reading “Demystifying the odd base conundrum”

Strand NGS-Annotation toolbox for organisms

Our planet accommodates a variety of life with their genes: from civilized humans to the colonized bacteria, from infamous mosquito to the cutest puppies, and from golden rice to the greenest algae. Studying these species helps us in understanding the genetics of the species and population diversity and also other biomedical and bio technical applications. … Continue reading “Strand NGS-Annotation toolbox for organisms”
