Project

Influence of phototropin genes on tomato fruit quality and shelf life” and “Manipulation of light signaling components for improvement of tomato fruit quality”

Profile

At the Repository of Tomato Genomics Resources (http://uohyd.ac.in/images/index.html), (DBT Centre of Excellence and Innovation in Biotechnology (CEIB): "Program Support on Genome Engineering of Tomato”) we are working on Tomato Functional Genomics involving Genome Editing, Exome Capture, Proteomics, and Metabolomics along with TILLING approaches to manipulate the fruit ripening in tomato. The current aims of the group are to isolate tomato mutants with high lycopene, β-carotene (provitamin A), folate content and long shelf life of fruits.
