Fulbright Scholar Joins the Lab: Simardeep Kaur
Miss Simardeep Kaur is a Nehru Doctoral Fulbright fellow at KAABiL Laboratory, USU. Her doctoral thesis focuses on deciphering the microRNA related modulations in contrasting rice genotypes under drought stress. As a Fulbright fellow she will be learning bioinformatic tools and softwares for comprehensive analysis of the data generated from her molecular biology related work from wet-lab experiments. She will be improving her skills to handle larger data set like those for methylome, transcriptome, lncRNAs, miRNAs, validation techniques and their analysis so that she can integrate molecular biology with bioinformatics to develop the drought tolerant agricultural crops.
