At the Repository of Tomato Genomics Resources, we are working on Tomato Functional Genomics, using TILLING, Insertional Mutagenesis, Exome Capture, Genome Editing, proteomics and metabolomics approaches to study fruit ripening in tomato. The current aims of the group include using reverse and forward genetics strategies to isolate tomato mutants delayed in ripening, having high lycopene and folate content in tomato fruits and analysis of light and hormonal signal transduction pathways.
Currently, we have following positions available in the projects “Manipulation of light signaling components for improvement of tomato fruit quality” and “Interaction between proteome and metabolomic networks during tomato fruit ripening” awarded to Dr. Y. Sreelakshmi, funded by Department of Biotechnology. The qualifications for the positions are as follows:
