Shukla Group

Molecular Engineering Laboratory

The long-term research goal of Shukla group is to combine theory, computation, and experiments to develop quantitative models of biological phenomena relevant for health, energy and climate change. Under the broad umbrella of molecular engineering and sciences, our research program is focused on developing a platform for understanding regulation of protein function such as elucidating mechanistic insights to regulate plant growth and development in context of global climate change. We integrate ideas from a wide range of disciplines tied together by a vision of “Dynamic” biology and its role in engineering products for human health, energy, and climate change.

Projects Research

Computational Plant Biology

Shukla Group employs computational techniques for interrogating protein dynamics to investigate regulation of plant membrane transporters and hormone receptors, and in doing so, guide future crop innovation.

Molecular Medicine

Our group is interested in deciphering the mechanisms of regulation of protein function with a particular focus on membrane transporter proteins and G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs).

Simulation Methods

We are developing computational methods to address the challenges of adequate sampling, accuracy and interpretability of large scale simulation data.
