Professor Vijayan's work cocentrates on elucidating the structures and function of proteins and other biologically important molecules using X-ray crystallography. His group's research focusses on: (1) Structure, sugar specificity and multivalency of legume lectins (2) The structural plasticity of Mycobacterial proteins (3) The hydration, plasticity and action of proteins (4) Supramolecular association and their implications on chemical evolution and the origin of life
