About

Actively involved in Quantitative genetics (Linkage disequilibrium and QTL) studies on Lolium perenne and rice. Gene expression studies in Lolium perenne and Festulolium (by RNA seq.), allele frequency studies by GBS, RAD seq. in Redclover, Lolium perenne and Timothy. promoter analysis of rice genes and also protein studies as part of my Postdoc and PhD . Specialties: Marker studies, Genetic Map construction by QTL Map maker , Identifying the agronomical traits by Marker assisted selection. Molecular biology techniques like DNA/RNA/Protein isolation, cDNA library construction, PCR, Real time-PCR, TA cloning, Gel electrophoresis, Yeast one hybrid assay, Electrophoretic mobility shift assay(EMSA), Gene Sequencing.. Good at conducting field and greenhouse research. Use of Linux, MS-Office and Statistical Analysis Softwares and exploring data banks like NCBI
