About Me: Scientist at Division of Genetics, Indian Agricultural research Institute. Working on Genetic improvement of Wheat

Articles by Dr. Kiran B. Gaikwad:
  • Nutrient Deficiencies in Wheat ( 1907 reads)   

    This article summaries the common deficiency symptom of important macro and micro nutrients in wheat. - Category: Agriculture
  • The Dynamic Genome: A Gateway of Evolution ( 3576 reads)   

    From millions of years a magical molecule DNA is undergoing continuous changes. These changes, if beneficial, are retained by the nature which is the basis of evolution. This article summaries mechanism behind the ever changing nature of organism's genome. - Category: Genetics
  • Zinc Finger Nucleases: A Molecular tool for Targeted Genetic Alterations ( 1753 reads)   

    Zinc Finger Nucleases (ZFNs) can effectively and precisely manipulate the genome of plant, animal and insect species. These modifications have resulted in understanding of gene function, gene integration, gene disruption, mutagenesis and in treatment of various diseases or disorders including HIV - Category: Genetics
  • Marker Assisted Breeding: A Paradigm Shift in Crop Improvement Research ( 2696 reads)   

    The advent of molecular marker technology in quantitative genetics greatly facilitates the study of complex traits and has made it possible to dissect the polygenes controlling such traits into individual Mendelian factors - Category: Agriculture
  • Engineering Mitochondrial Genome For Crop Improvement ( 4166 reads)   

    Transgene escape and its integration into related crop species through pollen grains is a big environmental concern. Mitochondrion could serve as a dynamic candidate for transgene containment in crops. Having its own transcription and translation machinery, and maternal inheritance gives assurance of transgene containment with high level of expression. This makes a novel strategy to engineer plant mtDNA and its utilization in improving economically important traits in crops. - Category: Agriculture
  • Crop Improvement For Human Nutrition ( 2388 reads)   

    The potential to increase the micronutrient density of staple foods by conventional breeding exists. The content and bioavailability of micronutrients in most staple crop plants are variable, are under genetic control and can usually be increased by conventional breeding. When the necessary genetic variability is not available, genetic engineering offers possibilities for increasing the content and bioavailability of micronutrients in crop plants. The international agricultural research system has the capacity to incorporate nutrition-enhancing traits in crop varieties that are desirable to small-scale farmers and will be grown and consumed by the rural poor in developing countries. To provide nutritionally enhanced crops to the rural poor, agriculturists and nutritionists need to work together to define the deficiencies, target the right populations and deliver the right products. - Category: Agriculture
