Krishnaveni Mishra obtained her Ph.D. from Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Hyderabad in the year 1994 where she worked on transport of RNA and protein across the nuclear membrane in mammalian cells. She moved to Washington University, School of Medicine, St.Louis, Missouri, USA to pursue her post-doctoral studies in cell cycle regulation of nuclear pore complex protein expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In 1996, she moved to the Department of Molecular Biology, University of Geneva, Geneva Switzerland where she focused on telomere length regulation and epigenetic gene regulation in S. cerevisiae. Returning to India in 2001, she joined CCMB as a postdoctoral fellow for a short while before accepting a Senior Research Associateship (CSIR-Pool officer) to pursue studies in nuclear architecture and epigenetics. In 2004, she joined the University of Hyderabad as a faculty at the Department of Biochemistry where she continues to study epigenetic gene regulation and nuclear architecture in gene expression and genome stability. She has extensive experience in yeast genetics, molecular biology and cell biology.

Krishnaveni Mishra was the Coordinator of Master’s in Systems Biology (5-year integrated) program at the School of Life Sciences from 2014 to 2018. She is also the Associate Director of the College for Integrated Studies (2014 onwards) where she coordinates the activities of the Integrated Master’s program in Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities.

Our laboratory is interested in various aspects of nuclear cell biology. Our goal is to understand how the nucleus evolved, what regulates nuclear shape, how the nucleus interacts with other organelles and finally how all of this influences genome organization and function. Our primary model of choice is the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We initiated a genetic screen in S. cerevisiae to unravel the molecular basis of compartmentalization within the nucleus and identified protein SUMOylation as a key regulator of inter-compartmental mobility for Sir2, a conserved NAD-dependent histone deacetylase. In a genome-wide screen for components that regulate nuclear shape, we have identified several key processes that influence nuclear shape and nuclear envelope organization. This includes the nucleolus, chromatin remodelers and components of the endoplasmic reticulum and vacuoles. In an effort to understand the origin of the nuclear envelope, we have taken a comparative genomics approach to identify components of the nuclear envelope that are conserved across supergroups. Interestingly, this study shows ancient origin for several components of the NE proteome. In other work, we have identified a key role for transcription termination factor(s) in genome stability and are investigating how RNA metabolism affects genome organization and stability.
