Current Research

Main Research Interests:

  • Genomics, Proteomics (Bioinformatics) and Transcriptomics (RNA sequencing) approaches to investigate economically important pathways including time of flowering and maturity, and seed protein content in soybean.
  • Allele-specific marker developments in soybean.
  • Computational approach to investigate protein-protein interactions in soybean.
  • Host-pathogen interaction analysis (Soybean-SCN).
