Research

 

My researches mainly focus on Crop improvement associated with yield, quality and biotic & abiotic stress-adaptation of plants. Molecular biology, Genomics and conventional Plant Breeding & Tissue Culture approaches are used to address the research questions and to test the research hypotheses. Both lab and field laboratories facilities are used for conducting research experiments. The lab has research collaborations with Max Plant Institute, ICGEB and Australian National University.
