Recommondation
To Whom It May Concern&#rl;&#nl; I am happy to write this letter in support for Ms. Atreyee Mukherjee’s application. I have known Atreyee for the past 5 years since she started her graduate studies in the Department of Life Sciences at Presidency in 2015. After completion of her Bachelor’s studies she continued master’s level studies in Presidency itself. In these years I have taught topics on cell biology, virology, biostatistics and research ethics. &#rl;&#nl; Atreyee has an interest in exploring the potential of growth factors in regeneration post myocardial infarction. She has had some amount of research experience during a summer internship organized by IAS. She also completed a yearlong dissertation on characterization of rice Sirtuin 2. During this year long dissertation, she has had to write a review and participate in journal presentations besides also write a project proposal. She is conversant with most regular molecular biology techniques. She is consistent in her achievements as is evident from her CV. &#rl;&#nl; Atreyee is a very dedicated and sincere girl. She has an immense interest in the subject and an enthusiasm for learning and undertaking new projects. She is amicable with friends, with a very pleasant personality and is well liked by her peers and teachers. Of the students in her class, Atreyee has always been considered to be one of the well performing students.&#rl;&#nl; Atreyee is truly a student who has the potential to excel in the field of biomedical research given the right atmosphere and training. She has the potential to make significant contributions to the field of biomedical sciences given the proper guidance and training. I have no reservation in recommending her to your Institute.&#rl;&#nl; Please feel free to contact me in case of any queries.&#rl;&#nl;


Question 1
What is it about research as a career that interests you the most? In which subject area(s) would you like to pursue research? What led you to choose this area of research?

Response to Question 1
I think research is a unique opportunity to experience life from a different perspective. I hope that I will develop my senses to think independently and to connect the pieces from my research interest. I think a research career gifts us with many different skills like critical thinking, patience, etc. And I think most research career is dependent on determination and persistence. I am quite sure about this fact that my research interest motivates me every day to do better in all aspects. As a college student, I was persistent but not motivated. After completing my B.Sc, the scenario got changed and now I want to devote my time on research because it keeps moving my thoughts and critical reasoning
As a student I found that transcription about mRNA or in genera RNA production and translation is about gene expression from those mRNAs.The most fascinating part was post transcriptional regulation. I was failed to understand why protein expression is regulated in such intermediate step after transcription. It takes a lot of time to understand the significance of this step. And more I read about this specific area, I gradually understand the potential of this in gene expression in future therapeutics.


Question 2
Describe any project, or laboratory experiment, or research-oriented training programme that you have been involved in. Please highlight the aspects that you particularly enjoyed.

Response to Question 2
I got the opportunity to work on a project named “Identifying differential expression of notch receptors and ligands in developing neocortex” at RGCB under the IAS summer internship program (2018). To be honest, then everything seemed to be the most interesting part of the project. But I specifically want to mention the techniques such as RNA extraction, cDNA conversion, and RT PCR analysis were the things of my interest. I wanted to learn the techniques and understand the logic behind every step of those techniques. As an undergrad student, it was overwhelming. Then I worked on my dissertation project named,” Characterization of NAD+ dependent deacylase in Oryza sativa Indica”. Though I couldn’t complete my all experiments due to the COVID-19 situation, I enjoyed standardizing different conditions for protein extraction. I was also interested bout using western blot but, I couldn’t learn the whole process and apply it practically. From both of my projects, one thing I really enjoyed, which is troubleshooting in different ways when the experiments were failed.

Question 3
State the reasons on why you want to opt for JNCASR for your advanced research / academic studies.

Response to Question 3
I think a good research mind should be shaped into the best by the best mentors and with the help of a great platform. In general, I became to know that JNCASR boasts very modern and abundant research facilities that can give someone to explore his or her skills, ability, and research potential. And I found that some labs are working on my research interest which is transcriptional or post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. That’s why I think this place can do the aforementioned things for me in my research area.
