  2. Developed the first molecular network on human obesity through screening >25 million pubmed records, gene expression databases, clinical studies, drug side effects and other information resources. Built a new text mining system and machine learning model for semi-automated screening of literature records with high F score.

  3. Built a new system for finding role of microRNAs in heart development and heart diseases by integration of large scale experimental data with computational and comparative approaches. We detected 353 known and 703 novel miRNAs involved in heart development. The target mRNAs were appeared to be enriched with genes related to cell cycle, apoptosis, signaling pathways, extracellular remodeling, metabolism, chromatin remodeling and transcriptional regulators

Established the new framework/portal of "obesity treatment" and other diseases such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension among the people living sedentary lifestyle by engaging relevant sections of community using social networks, data science systems, machine learning, sensors and mobile apps. The system is being used by general public as a social service initiative.
