Dr. Borpatragohain has over ten years of experience in brassica breeding with a strong interest in mineral nutrition and plant metabolites. Her current research interests include:
- Understanding the crop genome complexity related to sulphur metabolism and pungency of mustard
- Genetic manipulation of seed storage proteins and glucosinolate of Indian mustard
- Genetic mapping of Brassica rapa by using next generation sequencing approaches
- Understanding the interaction between epigenetic marks and potassium variability on brassica genome
- Breeding mustard genotypes suitable for Australian growing condition.
Additionally, Priya has been applying advanced genomics and single-cell proteomics technologies to understand the links between crop nutrition and crop metabolite production in different brassica species.
