Mapping genes for yield, quality and disease
" Decoded the genomes of rice (chromosome 11), tomato (chromosome 5) and wheat (chromosome 2A),in partnership with international consortia. The high quality reference genomes are in the public domain and used extensively by researchers worldwide for gene discovery and marker development."
" Produced the first draft of pigeon pea genome, first eukaryotic genome sequenced entirely in India and first pulse crop genome sequenced globally."
" Developed methods for analysis of wheat low molecular weight glutenin subunits, genetically mapped these and showed their effect on bread-making quality of wheat. The methods are used extensively worldwide."
" Discovered and characterized in detail at the molecular level a new class of wheat endosperm protein, and named it “Triticin”. It is a legumin-like seed storage protein in wheat with superior nutritional quality than."
" LMapped number of genes/QTLs for yield, abiotic stress tolerance and grain quality traits in rice, wheat and pigeonpea, and coordinated efforts to transfer major QTLs for drought, submergence and salinity inn rice."
