Bio

Roshna is an aspiring computational biologist, who is interested in the prospects of using computing to model protein folding. She strives to major in computational biology or other related majors in college, including systems biology. Her greatest accomplishment is authoring two independent research computational biology projects. She has used CLUSTAL, BLAST, and Visual Molecular Dynamics to model proteins crucial to immunosuppression in ebolaviruses to determine conserved regions of importance. She has also used Schrondinger Bioluminate to investigate the effects of point mutations in the beta-globin protein. In the future, she wants to study how computational models can be used to predict accurate protein folding.
