Shashi Bhushan Tripathi
Associate Professor,
Department of Biotechnology

Dr. Shashi Bhushan Tripathi has over 18 years of research experience in the field of plant molecular biology. His major areas of research are molecular markers and their applications in genetic diversity analysis, germplasm inventorisation and genetic improvement. He has used various molecular markers such as AFLP, ISSR, RAPD and microsatellites in a wide range of species to address issues such as clonal uniformity, clonal identification, analysis of genetic diversity and population structure, linkage and association mapping and marker-assisted breeding. He has worked on genetic diversity analysis of a variety of plant species such as tea, Jatropha, Pongamia, bamboos, teak and sea buckthorn. He has worked on marker assisted introgression of low glucosinolate traits in Indian mustard. He has also developed inter-specific hybrids and backcross lines in Jatropha curcas in order to develop improved varieties with high seed yield and oil content.
