Welcome to the Hazra Lab!




The focus of our laboratory is to explore the vast chemical space that exists within biological systems, especially in the microbial world, using the tools of mechanistic enzymology, analytical chemistry, and genetics.

Microbes have evolved since billions of years to thrive in diverse environmental niches and conditions. Their evolution is accompanied by a staggering range of diverse metabolic reactions and the production of a rich repertoire of biomolecules, enabling survival in varied environmental conditions. The Hazra lab wishes to investigate the genetic pathways and molecular and enzymatic mechanisms involved in the metabolism and the cross-talk within microbial systems.
