Applicant: Bharath Kumar G
Program: Master’s in Microbial Biotechnology

Statement of Purpose
Having pursued relevant projects, courses and considering my aptitude, I find myself interested in life sciences and more specifically in Microbiology. I believe that pursuing Masters in Microbial Biotechnology at North Carolina State University will help me to widen my knowledge, hone my technical and managerial skills and provides me an opportunity to contribute to cutting edge research in the field and contribute to its growth in Industry.

Consistently a top student in school, I developed an interest in science and technology, particularly during the formative years of my schooling. Being among the top 0.8% of about 0.45 million applicants to qualify for Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) entrance exam, I chose Biotechnology as my undergraduate majors. Over the last four years in IIT, I have developed a fascination for life sciences. Throughout my undergraduate study, I have taken up a rigorous curriculum and maintained a decent grade of 9.25/10 in my majors and stood among the top five students. Along with experimental and practical courses on basic biochemical and biophysical techniques and the relevant molecular genetic techniques, the fundamental courses on Molecular biology and genetic engineering, Animal and Plant biotechnology, Biosensors, Systems Biology enhanced my understanding and appreciate the depth and scope of biotechnology. These courses challenged me to determine which experimental approaches were most appropriate to test specific hypothesis rather than memorizing the equations or reactions. Courses on Microbiology, Industrial Microbiology, Gene therapy, Immunology and the relevant projects led to my specific interest in Microbiology. I have made efforts to make myself conversant in the field by following journals like Clinical Microbiology review, Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology.

I had my first research Experience in Dr. B Anand’s lab, IIT Guwahati, during my second year. The aim of the project was to study the non-fluorescent beta-barrel structured proteins and engineer its amino acid sequence to make them into fluorescent one. Our approach was mainly based upon the studies of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) from a jellyfish Aequorea victoria. Later, in the fall break, I got selected for the short term internship in Globion India Pvt.Ltd–Hyderabad, India. I worked on ‘Growth-curve studies of chick embryo-propagated Infectious Bronchitis Virus’ under the guidance of Dr. Sophia. The training was basically aimed at learning laboratory techniques in microbiology and molecular biology. Working in a group of highly motivated individuals was a gratifying scientific experience. The fact that I was able to perform well in the projects and at the same time enjoy the work, motivated me to pursue my research interests.

In the spring of my second year, along with...
