Our most recent seminar speaker was Dr. Rohini Garg, Assistant Professor at Shiv Nadar University, UP, India, who spoke about “Studying plant environment interaction through the lens of epigenomics”. Dr. Rohini’s team uses bisulfite sequencing to characterize DNA methylation patterns that regulate plant responses to abiotic stresses, particularly of rice and chickpea. The engaging talk was followed by an interactive discussion session.
