Very productive to build my career
Research Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Manhattan, KS – June 6, 2018
Skillfully focused on wheat and developing molecular markers for marker-assisted selection (MAS), specifically the molecular characterization of disease resistance genes, and by using molecular techniques, identified a strand of rust resistant genes in a wild relative of wheat. Arduously developed a large number of items, some of which include the EST-derived SSR markers, microsatellite-based deletion bin system; a high-density linkage map of Aegliops tauschii, and the D-genome progenitor of bread wheat.
• Vigilantly studied the rust resistant genes and ultimately produced a wheat germplasm resistant to leaf rust by using molecular markers.
• Personally saw to the resistance of Karnal bunt disease in wheat and went on to identify diagnostic markers.
