Biomechanics

Study of mechanical properties biological samples

biomech(In collaboration with Prof. Bobji, mechanical engineering Dept.)

 All the cells, tissues and organs in an organism possess mechanical properties like elastic modulus, hardness and viscoelasticity. We are interested in understanding these biomechanical properties in Drosophila melanogaster, by studying eye and muscle structures in wild type and mutant organisms.
