Research Positions in Tomato Functional Genomics

At the Repository of Tomato Genomics Resources (http://rtgr.webs.com/), 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. For recent publications of the group see (Food Chemistry 2017 217:610, Frontiers in Plant Sciences 2016 7:969; PLoS ONE 2016 11(4); Food Chemistry 2015 179: 76-84; Plant Methods 2015 11:5; Plant Cell Environment 2014 37: 1688-1702, Plant Physiology 2014 164: 2030-2044; Plant Physiology 2013 161: 2085–2101).

Currently we have following positions available in the DBT Centre of Excellence and Innovation in Biotechnology (CEIB): "Program Support on Genome Engineering of Tomato” awarded to Prof RP Sharma, funded by Department of Biotechnology.
