Dr. Yogendra Kalenahalli is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Agriculture, Food & Wine, University of Adelaide. He primarily works on improving plant biomass and grain yield in wheat crop under optimum condition.
- Development and screening of transgenic wheat lines to enhance wheat yield.
- OMICs approaches to improve the biotic and abiotic stress tolerance in cereals and vegetable crops.
- CRISPR-Cas9 based genome editing to improve grain yield in cereal crops
