Head, CU Bioinformatics Research (CUBRe)
B.Sc Mathematics, M.Sc Mathematics (Computer Sc option), Ph.D (Computer Sc and Bioinformatics)
My main research interests are in computational complexity and computational molecular biology, with emphases on
- anti malarial drugs design and development;
- PCR detection of malaria at the liver stage;
- anti-malaria drugs resistance mechanism;
- combined anti malarial drugs development;
- characterizing the malaria parasite transcription factors and their DNA binding sites using a holistic probabilistic framework;
- 3D Structures prediction and structures based drug discovery;
- computational identification of functional modules in Plasmodium falciparum;
- organisms inter-pathways analysis using the microarray data,
- insecticides design and development and recently
- Human genetics
Based on the above, there are presently six (6) divisions under Covenant University Bioinformatics Research (CUBRe). Please http://cubre.covenantuniversity.edu.ng for more deatils. If the link is active for clicking, copy and paste this on your browser.
