What’s the best part of your profession? What made you choose this profession?
Computational Metagenomics is a branch of Computational Biology that includes the study of microbes that are inside and on the body. The best part is to analyze these things not seen by the naked eye and to decide which are good, bad, neutral, etc. Experimenting on microbes, determining whether they are good or bad, and finding new species if any, all these research stuff made me make it my profession.
Do you like reading? What was the last thing you read?
I like to read a lot of new research stuff, including tech that helps in doing my research on microbes, and the last paper I read was "Comparison of Fecal and Blood metabolome reveals inconsistent association of gut microbes with cardiometabolic diseases" by Kui Deng.

I love Maharashtrian Puran-Poli.
