The project thus aimed to biosynthesis the pathway of one such secondary metabolite in banana using comparative genome-wide analysis, expression profiling, reverse genetic analysis and other related methods. 

Major Responsibility: 

1. The ideal candidate expected to construct and maintain a high-density mutant banana library 
2. Characterize the secondary metabolite profile in banana 
3. Other works related to 1 & 2 File No.F.No.9(160)/2020/Estt.
