Minh N. Nguyen (BII, Singapore)
Hey, I am a Research Scientist at Bioinformatics Institute, Singapore. He obtained his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics from the School of Computer Engineering in
Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
His research interests are in the areas of modelling the 3D structures of biomolecular complexes and
predicting protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions. His current focus is on docking of ligands to protein/RNA and developing computational
techniques to study the interactions between biomolecules and small molecule ligands. He has made several contributions in his areas of research,
and his software tools have been widely used and cited. He has published over 35 peer-reviewed journal/conference papers and book chapters.

I completed my masters in biotechnology with multitude of interdisciplinary courses.
While doing short time curricular project I got
interested in how structural biology plays a key role in green fluorescent protein's fluorescence. I got an opportunity to work on
quantum mechanical and molecular modeling projects to pursue my research interest further. I wish to contribute to computer aided
drug design projects by studying the specificity of ligand protein interactions at the electronic level in the longer run.
Abhilesh Dhawanjewar (University of Nebraska, USA)
I am broadly interested in the field of Evolutionary Biology, especially in the Evolution of Genetic Networks. My
current interests include the coevolution of Mitochondrial-Nuclear interactions and I am keen on employing an
interdisciplinary approach to investigate the role of Mitochondrial-Nuclear networks and genetic incompatibilites in
