Dr. Shahid Ullah received his Ph.D in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), China in july 2016. He has two years experience as a postdoctoral in the Institute of Low-dimensional Materials Genome Initiative, College of Chemistry and Environmental Engineering, Shenzhen University, Shenzhen, Guangdong, 518060, P. R. China, Currently he is in United States of America, he kept making effort to promote his capacity to scientific research in term of philosophy, methodology, knowledge and computational skill. He remained engaged in many government funded projects mainly focusing on PTM based computational studies. Through these projects, he have mastered a lot of computational skills, including collecting and sorting experimental data, extracting and analyzing pathway of data and developing database and tool by Perl and Java programing language, his main contribution to scientific community is developing a comprehensive phosphorylation site database (dbPAF) containing phosphorylated proteins with their modification sites in human, mouse, rat, fruit fly, nematode and yeast. dbPAF, is superior in both the number of p-sites and proteins in all the databases of the world and he has further studied circadian related genes and their relationship with post translation modification (PTMs).
Dr Shahid Ullah current research interests is focused on Computational study of phosphorylation, drug discovery and development, Rational drug designing (Computer-aided drug design, structure-based drug design)
