Masters Students

Akash Gupta
Brief Bio:
Akash has completed his MTech. at the Indian Institute of Engineering Science & Technology, Shibpur. He is also working at the Director's cell at IICB as a programmer. Genome Unified Schema has been widely used world wide and is very robust, but the Oracle framework of this database limits its usage. Especially in developing countries, paying for the license fees every year makes it an expansive option. The present Eumicrobedb.org database is based on GUS schema. Akash will remodel GUS and alter the schema with all the plugins, so that it runs on mysql. Akash favorite passtime is to read novels and blog and I see him online most of the time:) He is also a spelling bee champion and a math whiz.
