Dr. Jitender Singh

Senior Research Associate

Scientist's Pool Scheme (2019)

PhD. (ICGEB, New Delhi)

Research Area:

We intend to increase the photosynthesis and yield in crop plant rice by improving sucrose translocation from the source (leaves) to sink tissues by enhancing the expression of SWEETS in a concerted manner using the CRISPR/Cas technology.
