Dr. Swati Singh

Assistant Professor, Life Science


Dr. Swati Singh having a doctoral degree in Botany from Department of Botany, University of Delhi. My M.Phil. and doctoral thesis entail characterization of genes responsible in root system architecture and wax biosynthesis pathway respectively. I also have an experience of 18 months working on Role of miRNA in development of root system architecture of Brassica. I have a keen interest in working in the field of Molecular Biology, role of miRNA in gene regulation and effect of epigenetic regulation in plants.
