(Agri.) from UAS, GKVK, Bangalore (KA), M.Sc. (Agri.) and Ph.D. (Agri.) with
specialization in Genetics and Plant Breeding from University of Agricultural
Sciences, GKVK, Bangalore. Joined ICAR in July 2014 and started working as
Scientist at NRC on Pomegranate, Solapur, Maharashtra, from 10th
Most Significant Research Achievements:
Xanthomonas interacting genes from different crop species through
in silico approach and designed
primers for the same.
Identified and developed pyramided resistant lines
for blast and brown planthopper (Pi1+bph4) in rice.

for pigeonpea, cowpea, common bean and the same were deposited in NCBI database.
Comparative genomics study has been made among ten
legume crops (Medicago, pigeonpea, cowpea, horsegram, chickpea, urd bean, common
bean, soybean, dolichos bean and groundnut).
Development of new
hybrids/varieties in pomegranate.
Marker assisted breeding
for biotic and abiotic stress tolerance/resistance in pomegranate.
