Basila is a joint PhD student between the Baldridge and Ragunathan labs (ragunathanlab.org). She received her BSc and MSc degrees in Biochemistry from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune, India. For her master’s thesis, she worked on the modification-dependent restriction enzyme, Methylated cytosine restriction B and C (McrBC) complex, which recognizes a methylated cytosine next to a purine base. Her current project is aimed at understanding the ERAD system using single-molecule approaches.
