Jasdeep Chatrath Padaria Principal Scientist ICAR-National Research Centre on Plant Biotechnology India

She is awarded PhD in Molecular biology & biotechnology from Indian Agricultural Research.  she is working as an Principal Scientist for National Research Centre on Plant Biotechnology, Indian. Her international experience includes various programs, contributions and participation in different countries for diverse fields of study.  Her research interests reflect in her wide range of publications in various national and international journals.  She is working in the area of biotechnology and climate change with emphasis on genes for high temperature stress tolerance for development of wheat transgenics tolerant to high temperature stress. Bioprospecting of genes and better performing alleles for high temperature stress tolerance, from across the plant kingdom and their validation in model systems for developing transgenic wheat adaptable to climate induced abiotic stresses form the major research goal. Identification and characterization of abiotic stress responsive genes using various differential display techniques like transcriptome profiling, SSH, microarray analysis and PCR based strategies is been carried out from hardy plants such as Penniseteum, Zizyphus and Prosopis as well as thermotolerant cultivars and landraces of wheat which are inherently tolerant to various abiotic stresses.
