Dr Kumar Gaurav

Postdoctoral Scientist

Kumar works on statistical and computational methods for genomic analysis aimed at identifying genes associated with disease resistance in domesticated wheat and wild wheat relatives.

In particular, Kumar is interested in approaches which are not strictly dependent on the availability of a reference genome.
