Amara Jabeen is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Sciences at Macquarie University. She is working on functional annotation of odorant receptors using bioinformatics approaches. She is predicting the structures of olfactory receptors through computational methods. She has worked on genome-wide analysis of T6SS proteins in Acidovorax avenae subsp. avenae, Acidovorax avenae subsp. citrulli AACOO1 and Acidovorax avenae subsp. avenae ATCC19860 through bioinformatics approaches. She has also worked on structure prediction of Lipase H and bioinformatics analysis of Lipase H and Extracellular matrix protein 1 (ECM1).
