Junior Research Fellow (Project Grant GAP-43) (One Position)
Project Title:- Mining nonhost resistance (NHR) genes for engineering Alternaria Blight resistance in Indian Mustard (Brassica juncea)” Principal Investigator:- Dr. Sivasubramanian, Inspire Faculty, NABI
Duration of Project: Till 15th March, 2024
Project Summary: The project focusses on discovering non-host resistance genes against a major necrotrophic pathogen of the oilseed Brassicas, Alternaria brassicae. The project involves identification and characterisation of effectors in the culture filtrate of A. brassicae. Some of the characterised effectors would be used as baits to identify host and non-host interacting proteins in Brassica juncea and Nicotiana benthamiana. The identified interacting partner(s) would be validated using immunoprecipitation and BiFC assays.Further, the candidate interacting partner(s) would be functionally validated by over expressing it in Arabidopsis thaliana, followed by disease bioassays on the overexpression lines. This project involves handling fungal cultures, molecular cloning, mass spectrometry, and other protein-protein interactions assays.
