Malay Das

Assistant Professor

I am pursuing research in different areas of plant functional and comparative genomics. I mostly use tropical bamboos and Brassicas as systems 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. My specific research topics are:

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

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

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

(4) Functional genomics of fiber development in tree bamboo
