Malay Das

Assistant Professor

I am a plant molecular biologist who is involved in extensive teaching and research. I teach both at Bachelor's and Master's level. I primarily teach on diverse molecular and physiological aspects of plant growth, development and it's interaction to nature. 

My research group is composed of a number of enthusiastic Ph. D. and Master's students. We are pursuing research in different areas of plant functional and comparative genomics. We are using a range of model and crop plant systems (Arabidopsis thaliana, A. lyrata, Brassica rapa, B. napus, Thellungiella halophila, Bambusa tulda, Bambusa balcooa, Oryza sativa) to address few yet unresolved mysteries of plant Biology. If successful, genes/pathways identified by these studies might be utilized in future for crop improvements. Our specific research topics are:

(1) Identification of genes controlling unique flowering times in tree bamboos

(2) Role of gene duplication on the evolution of novel plants stress genes in Brassicaceae

(3) Understanding the role of strigolactones in plant’s response to osmotic stresses
