The main focus of this laboratory is to carry out the biochemical and physiological analysis in economically important flower crops. This laboratory has the good facilities to undertake research work on to develop the protocol on abiotic stress management, post-harvest management of flower crops. Different techniques for screening of genotypes of flower crops for abiotic stresses like drought, high and low temperature, salt, etc. have been optimised.
The main focus of this laboratory is to develop doubled haploids (DHs) in economically important flower crops. This laboratory has the good facilities to under the DH work. The protocols have been developed for induction of haploids and doubled haploids in marigold, chrysanthemum and gladiolus in this laboratory. Different techniques of haploid induction like gynogenesis, induced parthenogenesis and androgenesis have been optimised and protocols were standardized for characterization and chromosome doubling of identified haploids.
