debashis sahoo: rare feat in stem cell research

debashis sahoo

Debashis sahoo:
the 32-year old scientist is now using the technique to find new genes that play a role in developing cancer. sahoo is currently instructor of pathology and siebel fellow at the stanford university institute of stem cell biology & regenerative medicine.

Instructor of Pathology and Siebel Fellow at
Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine

he is researching is on developing new methods to analyze high-throughput biological datasets. he have developed several tools and techniques to analyze large collections of microarray datasets. he have made specific biological predictions and then validated them in collaborations with several biologists at Stanford.the tools through which he analyze gene expression datasets are StepMiner, BooleanNet and MiDReG .
List of publications
Selected Research Contributions:
Proposed a new method of predicting developmentally regulated genes using Boolean implications. they predicted 62 B cell associated genes where 26 genes show specific defects in B cell function and differentiation from the available 41 mice knockouts.
In News:
*Computational feat helps find genes , 15 March 2010

*Computer scientist Debashis Sahoo, PhD, has devised a way to take two known genes and then, in a fraction of a second, find new genes involved in the same developmental pathway.

*Boolean Logic Unlocks The Key To Finding New Genes in Milliseconds , 10 April 2010

*A little bit of computer science has made it possible to reduce the time it takes to find new genes from years to milliseconds. Researchers at Stanford University have developed a simple processing method for searching through large public databases of genes and their associated proteins. Using Boolean logic (if A then B, if not C then D, etc), they have found a way to suggest which genes are responsible for different stages of complex chemical processes in our cells. Biologists generally take months or even years to find these genes experimentally, but the Boolean search method takes just a fraction of a second. When widely applied, the new method may accelerate genetic research enormously. Great things happen when sciences come together.

  1. is really stem cells going to work

  2. this is about the stem cells searching and of course it will work. he has made this possible to find genes in few milliseconds, which was earlier not possible.

The youngest candidate for Member of Parliament (MP) Lok Sabha 2014 Dr Arvind Kumar Singh

Though I really don't want to talk about politics and politicians on my blog, but as I said in my previous post, there are something which you can ignore but can't deny. Politics is the part and parcel of any nation and without politics, a nation may not exist at all. So, I selected one candidate who claims to be the youngest candidate for Member of Parliament (M.P) Lok Sabha 2014 from Aligarh constituency, as "Today's Indian People" Arvind Kumar Singh.

Arvind Kumar Singh was born on 7th November 1988, in Aligarh.

Singh currently is the Chancellor of Noida International University (NIU) and with this post in 2010, Singh became the world's youngest chancellor. Arvind had his schooling in India, moved to England (University of Leeds) for his masters degree in International business. He has been awarded with the Doctorate in Management for his work on “How personal evolution and development of leaders impact growth and success of their organizations.”

Cool with thy winds of delight,
Dark fields waving Mother of might,

Padma Shri Arunachalam Muruganantham - Innovator of low cost sanitary napkins

Padma Shri Arunachalam Muruganantham born 1962 is a social entrepreneur from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India.
Update: Bollywood Hindi Film "Pad Man" starred by Akshay Kumar is inspired by the true story of this man Arunachalam Muruganantham.

He is the inventor of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine and has innovated grass-roots mechanisms for generating awareness about traditional unhygienic practices around menstruation in rural India. He invented a set of machines which manufacture sanitary pads for women at a lower price and the best part is that he is employing women to make these pads, thus creating job opportunities for them. His mini-machines, which can manufacture sanitary pads for less than a third of the cost of commercial pads, have been installed in 23 of the 29 states of India. He is currently planning to expand the production of these machines to 106 nations. In 2014, TIME magazine placed him in its list of 100 Most Influential People in the World.
