M Ganesan

Assistant Professor

I was born and brought up in Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu and have done my studies as well. I have completed both UG and PG Botany from ANJA College, Madurai Kamaraj University and I have done my PhD in Botany from Bharathidasan University, Thiruchirrappli, Tamil Nadu. For my PhD work, I have developed fungal disease tolerant genetically modified cotton plants by transforming rice chitinase gene.

After my graduation, I worked in Jeju National University, South Korea for 3 years and 6 months as post doctoral research scientist in the field of plant genetic engineering. I developed different turfgrass species by transforming phytochrome and bar genes. Later, I worked as a JSPS-Post Doctoral Fellow in Gifu University, Gifu, Japan in the field of Cotton Molecular Biology. During my career, I visited different countries related to academic and research programs. My experience to date covers various plant biology and plant molecular biological techniques, which will be useful to teach and train young students.
