Welcome to Integrative Biology Laboratory

Microbial Genomics & Bioinformatics Research Group (MGB)

We are based at Atta-ur-Rahman School of Applied Biosciences (ASAB), National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), a lush green campus in the beautiful Capital City Islamabad. Our group is mainly focusing on integrative genomics approaches; producing and analyzing the public genomic data for studying the genomic epidemiology, evolution and transmission (genetic exchanges) in bacterial pathogens. We are particularly interested in the regional crisis of growing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and dissemination of multidrug resistant pathogens both at the community and healthcare settings, we are also like to develop  tools and databases for pathogen genomic data analysis, prospective surveillance and tracking of emerging pathogens in the environment and clinical settings using whole genome sequencing and bioinformatics analysis. Employing reverse vaccinology and machine learning approaches for prediction of potential immunogenic and therapeutic targets (vaccines and drugs).
