Thank you for visiting my website.

Rohit Farmer Picture

I am a computational biologist at Medical Science & Computing (MSC), LLC, and working on site at the Center for Human Immunology (CHI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, MD. Before moving to the USA, I worked as an assistant professor at the Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, India.

I did my PhD from the University of Birmingham, UK with Peter J. Winn, and Chris M. Thomas. My PhD scholarship was funded by the prestigious Darwin Trust of Edinburgh. My PhD thesis titled "Modelling polyketide synthases and related macromolecular complexes". My past research interests include understanding protein structure-function relationship, modelling large macromolecular complexes, molecular dynamics simulations and antibiotic synthesis (see Research). During my postdoctoral fellowship, at the Washington University in St. Louis I worked with S. Joshua Swamidass on the application of deep learning in chemistry and medicine. I built models to predict drug-induced liver injuries (DILI) caused by bioactivated drug molecules.

I am fond of technology, photography, reading and writing, and travelling. My latest interests are learning project management skills, spin-offs and startups, computer security, and anonymity over the internet.
