Name of the Project
Preservation and propagation of healthy Shisham (Dalbergia sissoo) through cloning of resistant germplasm against dieback disease (Project: 883)
- Survey/identification and collection of samples of phenotypically diverse Dalbergia sissoo (Shisham) and establishment of colonal bank for conservation of most resistant genotype of Shisham against dieback disease.
- Confirmation of the casual pathogen of shisham dieback and Identification of resistant germplasm of Shisham against dieback disease.
- Genome sequencing and mining of SSR and SNP markers, to validate the resistance at genomic level in Shisham. Molecular characterization, meatgenomics of various fungal & bacteria species using molecular markers, and Development of in-vitro regeneration and transformation.
