Dr Shashi Bhushan Tripathi has been working for past 20 years in the field of molecular breeding and germplasm characterisation. He has used various molecular markers such as RAPD, ISSR, AFLP and SSRs in several plant species for analysis of genetic diversity and population structure. Since 2014, he has been using genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS-SNPs) markers in Jatropha, okra, chilli, cattle and poultry for germplasm characterisation and identification of QTLs for important traits. He has been an active researcher in several DBT-funded network projects on germplasm characterisation such as tea, bamboo, agarwood, Jatropha and sea buckthorn. His project on Development of double-low varieties in Brassica juncea has been awarded for the Best Innovation Award in Agricultural Biotechnology by BIRAC, Government of India. Currently, he is part of the DBT-funded network project on banana genetic diversity. In addition, he is also working on genetic improvement of Bhut Jolokia, a chilli landrace of Assam.
