Research Accomplishments: 

I like to work with plant viruses, I use the techniques of TEM, ELISA, DIBA, Probes, and sequence analysis. I try to over-express the coat proteins and make immuno probes for them. I also like to manage field problems caused by plant viruses and visualize the data I worked from 1993 to 2003 at The Virology Lab, IIHR, Bangalore and at Central Horticultural Experiment Station (CHES) Chettalli, Kodagu, Karnataka from 2003 to 2007. from 2008 I am at The Virology Lab, IIHR, Bangalore . 1.
