Debasis Dash

Senior Principal Scientist
Informatics and Big Data

Debasis Dash is interested in developing algorithms and tools in the area of computational biology.

His specific interests are developing novel approaches to

  • Proteome Informatics using Massspectrometry
  • Analyse exomes, metagenomes
  • Understand how variations at molecular level contribute to systemic level through ayurgenomics

His group has developed several tools and algorithms such as GenoCluster - for protein coding gene identification, PLHost - for Protein function assignment, machine learning tool "Pro-Gyan" for protein classification, "MassWiz", "Genosuite" and "Proteostat" for proteomics etc. Through collaboration, he works on understanding Ayurgenomics and deciphering signatures of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis.
