Prof. ARNAB PAIN Specialises in Genomics of Apicomplexan parasites and Chromerids and host-parasite interactions. He is working as Professor Department of Bioscience, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Saudi Arabia.
The primary focus of the Pathogen Genomics Laboratory is to use high-throughput sequencing and other functional genomic technologies to understand the biology and genomic diversity of a few parasitic protists and bacteria with significant impact on human and animal health. Genome and transcriptome sequencing of these organisms is a critical first step towards our understanding of how these organisms grow and thrive in a susceptible host and in other environment. A better understanding of their biology could eventually lead to the development of new intervention strategies.
