Mapping, identification of molecular markers associated with heat tolerance QTLs in tomato

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Agriculture

Tomato is one of the most significant vegetable crops grown worldwide. However, important traits such as pollen meiosis, germination, ovule development, viability and development of the embryo and fruit set of most tomato cultivars are adversely affected under temperatures higher than 35°C. This leads to non-availability in certain months.

Ecological baseline assessment and biodiversity mapping of coastal ecosystem

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project

A project supported by GIZ assesses the ecological baseline of the coastal marine protected area – the Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary in Chorao, Goa. The broad objectives of this project is conducting review and suggest participatory management of the Island estuarine ecosystem and to conduct baseline assessment of ecological status of the marine protected area.

Engineering the Nodulation Signaling Pathway in Rice Plant

December 27, 2017
| Ongoing project
| Agriculture

The study aims to engineer Nodulation signal perception mechanism in rice plant. This is a critical step in paving way for the development of N2-fixing symbiosis in this cereal crop to enable it to synthesise its own nitrogen fertiliser for its growth, akin to legumes.
