AN INVITED SCIENTIST AT IPS2: DR SALONI MATHUR

Dr. Saloni Mathur, Scientist at the National Institute of Plant Genome Research, New Delhi India, is visiting IPS2 for two months

The group of ‘Regulatory Non-coding RNAs’ at IPS2 is pleased to welcome Dr. Saloni Mathur from the National Institute of Plant Genome Research, New Delhi, India, for two months. Dr. Mathur is the group leader of a team working on molecular mechanisms of heat stress tolerance, more especially to elucidate the complex non-coding RNAs-mediated regulatory networks in tomato, a crop plant exhibiting high temperature sensitivity at various stages of its development. Using high throughput data on microRNAs, mRNAs, and long non-coding RNAs during different heat stress regimes in tolerant and sensitive tomato varieties from the Indian sub-continent, her lab has identified molecular regulators that have been functionally validated for thermotolerance in tomato. She has also active collaborations with Dr. Martin Crespi’s group at IPS2 about miRNA in Arabidopsis thaliana and her visit in IPS2 shall focus on lncRNAs interacting with NF-YA transcription factors in tomato/Arabidopsis and to set the base for future collaborations.
