Dr. Aparna Tiwari, completed her M.Sc. & Ph.D degree with specialization in ‘Plant breeding & Molecular Genetics’ from Wageningen University (The Netherlands). She has nine years of relevant work experience in diverse domain of agriculture from different international organizations like Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) & International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), & Monsanto Pvt. Ltd. Currently, she is working as a Assistant professor at MGM's Institute of Biosciences & Technology, Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India. She is involved in teaching and research related activity and help students to formulate research objective, analyze and execute experiment under lab and open field condition, monitor their regular progress and suggest appropiately. She works to ingrain professional education, training, mentorship and guidance to students to implement a cohesive plant breeding development across world. She focus to reinforce breeding status by using conventional and classical tools which is notably used by breeders worldwide. Evaluation and charactrization of germplasm, identification of variation among available material and integration of that variation into elite lines for the commercial use are some of the research area where she is working on. She attemps to develop new pool of germplasm with desibale variation through mutation breeding which later can be used in the breeding programme. She also focused on diversity analyses of various vegetable crops by using molecular and morphological charactrization and use the information for the improvement of breeding programme.
Strengthening agriculture portfolio by developing improved crop varieties though effective and efficient use of plant breeding is the main research interest of her work.
