"Tomato Functional Genomics" project at University of Hyderabad requires PhD Bioinformatics
At University of Hyderabad, we are having a vibrant group on Tomato Functional Genomics, which is working on TILLING (Targeting Induced Local Lesions IN Genomes), Insertional Mutagenesis, proteomics and fruit ripening in tomato. Some of the current aims of the group include using reverse genetics 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 Physiol 156: 1424-1438; Molecular Plant 3: 854-869; Plant Methods 6: 3; Plant Methods 5:18; Plant Signaling and Behavior 5:11.).
Currently we have following research associate position available under “Tomato Metabolome Network” (ToMaNet) funded by Dept of Biotechnology under following project entitled “Biofortification of tomato by targeted manipulation of the biosynthetic pathways” under supervision of Prof. R.P. Sharma, at Dept of Plant Sciences, School of Life Sciences, University of Hyderabad.
Position : Research associate
Fellowships : Rs 24,000/- pm + HRA.
Qualification : Applicants should have experience in bioinformatics for handling genome sequencing/proteome/metabolite analyses and application should be supported by publications. PhD in Bioinformatics is required.
