Tomato Functional Genomics, UoH Technical Assistant Vacancy

University of Hyderabad 
Repository of Tomato Genomic Resources 
Department of Plant Sciences 

Technical Assistant Position in Tomato Functional Genomics At the Repository of Tomato Genomics Resources, we are working on Tomato Functional Genomics, using TILLING, Insertional Mutagenesis, NGS, 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 (Plant Journal (2017)92: 495-508; Food Chemistry (2018) 259: 234-244; Food Chemistry.2015 DOI10.1016/j.foodchem.2015.01.110, Plant Methods. 2015 11:5 doi:10.1186/s13007-015-0051-0, Plant Cell Environment 2014 37: 1688-1702, Plant Physiology 2014 164: 2030-2044; Plant Physiology 2013 161: 2085–2101; Plant Physiology 2011 156: 1424-1438; Molecular Plant 2010 3: 854-869). We also conduct Annual Training Workshop on TILLING and Genome Editing. 

Currently we have following positions available in the following project awarded to Prof. R.P. Sharma funded by Department of Biotechnology till 31st March 2020. 

“Genome wide screen for tomato mutants by TILLING- Phase-II”
