Prashant Vikram

Associate Scientist Genetic Resource Program (Seeds of discovery), Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maíz y Trigo (CIMMYT)


Prashant Vikram started his research career from national agriculture research institutions in India (Indian Institute of pulses Research and National Research Center for Plant Biotechnology, ICAR) as research fellow, conducted PhD research from International Rice Research institute (IRRI), Philippines. Worked as post-doctoral researcher at IRRI and then at CIMMYT, Mexico. Currently working as wheat geneticist at CIMMYT in Seeds of discovery (SeeD) program. I have identified the most consistent drought tolerance QTL in rice (qDTY1.1) collocating with green revolution gene (sd1), further broken unholy linkage of a drought tolerance QTL in rice and sd1 gene and developed dwarf drought tolerant rice genotypes using popular lowland rice variety (Swarna) of South Asia. These valuable germplasms have been used for development of multiple stress-tolerant genotypes through marker assisted breeding. I am currently actively working on development of genetic and genomic resources for wheat improvement such as - high density consensus GBS map of wheat, wheat landrace core sets distributed to researchers in South Asia, Africa and Americas, handling large scale phenotyping and genotyping data sets for their efficient use in wheat varietal improvement.
