Dr. Vikas Sharma boasts a formidable academic foundation in genomics and bioinformatics, underscoring his prowess in these intricate domains. He earned his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics and Genomics with a specialization in Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) Data Analysis from the esteemed Indian Institute of Technology Mandi between 2013 and 2019. Prior to this, Dr. Sharma undertook an integrated B.Tech. – M.Tech. program in Biotechnology at Lovely Professional University (LPU) from 2007 to 2012. Situated in Phagwara, Punjab, LPU provided the initial impetus to his journey, which was further honed and refined at IIT Mandi in Himachal Pradesh.
In his most recent role since June 2022, Dr. Vikas Sharma has been showcasing his expertise as the Bioinformatics Scientific Manager at Eagle Genomics India LLP in Hyderabad. Here, he delves deep into pioneering research strategies, harnessing complex scientific algorithms, machine learning, and network principles, especially centered around microbiome and genomic analyses. Leading from the front, Dr. Sharma's efforts at Eagle Genomics encompass transforming observed challenges in genomic research into discernable and actionable objectives.
Previously, from December 2020 to June 2022, Dr. Sharma was an integral part of the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education & Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh, holding the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate. His tenure at PGIMER was marked by the establishment of a cutting-edge sequencing facility and spearheading critical research initiatives. These projects spanned areas such as multidrug-resistant pathogens and intricate host-pathogen interactions. He also played a pivotal role as an educator, enlightening Ph.D. students on the subtleties of NGS applications and bioinformatics.
Immediately preceding this, Dr. Sharma had a productive association with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mandi. Between September 2020 to December 2020, as a Senior Project Scientist, he dedicated himself to microbial research, emphasizing the creation of synthetic microbial consortia using sophisticated multi-omics techniques. His subsequent role at IIT Mandi, from May 2019 to May 2020, was characterized by the initiation and development of synthetic microbial consortia for biohythane production. This period was punctuated with in-depth studies into microbial communities, offering invaluable insights into the microbial dynamics across diverse ecosystems.
Lastly, during his brief tenure as a Senior Research Fellow at Jaypee University of Information Technology (JUIT) in January 2013, his endeavors aimed at the genetic enhancement of seed yield in J. curcas demonstrated his versatile skill set, which ranges from genomics to advanced genetic techniques.
