After the pandemic began, Vinod Scaria’s laboratory at CSIR-IGIB initiated a few projects to analyse the virus’s genetic data as obtained from different parts of the country.

“In the course of our PhD, we work on several exciting scientific questions that are relevant and help science advance in some way or the other. But to work on a project that is the need of the hour is every scientist’s dream,” Mukta Poojary, a PhD student working with Scaria, said. “So without any second thoughts, we quickly jumped on to the tasks that we were assigned.”
