Dr. Sathe discussed the Map-based cloning and functional characterization of Spotted-Leaf Gene spl40 in Rice (Oryzasativa L.) and talked about the finding of his research work on spl40 conferred broad spectrum disease resistance against bacterial blight pathogen Xanthomonas oryzae pv. Oryza. He also talked on the novel CRISPR technology used in plant Sciences. Whereas, Miss. Neha Paserkar discussed about the functional analysis of TIR-NBS-LRR domain containing Disease Resistant R-genes in B. napus against S. sclerotiorum. She also discussed about, funding opportunity to study in abroad and skill required succeeding in the research carrier. Students also discussed their queries with expert. At the end of the event Dr. Shekhar Jain, HOD, Life Sciences expressed vote of thanks to both guest.


Outcome: Such type of “Interaction with expert” from developed countries helps students to learn about educational and research areas of the countries.
