Division of New Genetics

Background

The Division of New Genetics is for harnessing the untapped potential of Mendelian genetics and biotechnologies including molecular breeding and transgenic and impart training in modern techniques of new genetics.

Objectives

• Development and adoption of rice technology, standardization of seed production technology and farmer’s participatory seed production
• Breeding for Climate Smart Rice (CSR) utilizing marker assisted selection for resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses
• Rice bio-fortification with iron, zinc and pro-vitamin A
• Pre-breeding and participatory breeding for enhancing genetic efficiency and genetic diversity
