Brief profile:

I joined ICAR-CIBA during August 2013. My masters and Doctorate degrees are in the discipline of Animal Genetics and Breeding. We studied the population structure of Etroplus suratensis and Penaeus indicus using mtDNA and microsatellites. At present we focus on comparing the growth performance of various stocks of Etroplus species.

Research areas:

  1. Molecular markers based on Population diversity studies
  2. Selective breeding

Current Research Projects:

 

No
Title
Funded By
1 Outreach Activity on Fish Genetic Stocks Institute
2 Identifying the genetic polymorphism for pathogenicity in Vibrio sp. ICAR
3 All India network project on Fish health ICAR
