  • Marker assisted selection for blast, bacterial leaf blight and gall midge resistance genes in rice through functional markers
  • QTL mapping and marker aided selection for drought tolerance in rice and cotton
  • Characterization of root proteome of rice for water stress
  • Cloning and characterization of abiotic stress inducible promoters from rice
  • Development of agriculturally important databases
  • Development of sequence analysis tools
