School of Atmospheric stress Management

  • Impact of extreme weather events like elevated CO2, high and low temperature, freezing injury, etc. on major food and horticultural crops, livestock and fisheries
  • Assessment of photosynthesis, growth and productivity of rice and wheat under Atmospheric Brown Clouds (ABC) of black carbon and other aerosols, isolation of relevant genes for conferring tolerance to ABC
  • Elucidating metabolic and molecular basis of adaptation of crops, animals, fish and microbes to elevated CO2 and temperature using "omics" approach as well as systems biology strategies
  • Developing Decision Support System (DSS) for mitigating the effect of extreme weather events
