Project Description and Objectives

Rice and barley, model grass plants, form specialized morphology of inflorescence and spikelet, which determine grain yield. Using various approaches such as forward and reverse genetics, biochemistry, cell biology etc. we are investigating the molecular mechanisms such as MADS box genes and the regulatory network involved in the morphogenesis and development of inflorescence and spikelet in rice and barley.

 

Eligibility Requirements

  • Applicants must have basic knowledge of biology.

  • Experience in research in biology research would be in advantage.

     

Main Tasks

The student will be involved in all stages of the project:

1)Design an experimental scheme

2)Perform experiments

3)Analyze experimental results

4)Write the experiment report
