Dr Manoj Prasad
Co-I WP1

Manoj is a Senior Scientist at the National Institute of Plant Genome Research working on crop genomics. He has developed novel sets of molecular markers in foxtail millet, bread wheat and barley, and applied them for genetic-, comparative-mapping, molecular genetic diversity studies and identification of QTLs for a variety of traits, which are useful for allele mining and marker-assisted breeding.

Dr Debasis Chattopadhyay
Indian Co-I WP1

Debasis is a Senior Scientist at NIPGR working on improvement of abiotic stress tolerance and root traits, as well as genome sequencing and analysis. Focuses on two major areas of research, namely, improvement of tolerance to abiotic stresses (i.e. drought and salt) in higher plants by improving root traits, and genome sequencing and analyses.

Dr Tirthankar Bandyopadhyay

Post-doctoral research associate, National Institute of Plant Genome Research (NIPGR), New Delhi, India. NIPGR is a premier autonomous research organization dedicated to plant biology research in India. He is currently researching on biological nitrogen use in foxtail millet, a model C4 grass as part of CINTRIN.
