About

At present I am working on Tomato leafminer, Tuta absoluta. The study started with identification of pest using various markers and through morphological means. Further about their migratory mechanisms. I wanted to implement RNAi (Si and mi-RNA's) mediated gene silencing mechanisms for their control.
