Aswini Babu

Research Associate, CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrated Biology

I am a research associate in CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrated Biology. Currently, I am a part of science communication in the institute. I write blogs related to genomic sciences (

My PhD work involves understanding the role of epigenetic regulators in embryonic development using zebrafish as a model with particular emphasis on histone acetyltransferase EP300, a mutation in which is known to cause the rare genetic disorder Rubinstein Taybi syndrome type II (RSTS-2).

Apart from doing science and writing, I enjoy making scientific abstracts and have made the cover art for 2 independent studies from my institute. In my leisure time, I enjoy listening to music.
