I have been engaged in cotton breeding for about 18-years. Cotton is the ultimate source of natural fiber all over the world which always needs fine fiber from textile perspectives and seedcotton from farmer point of view. I have been involved in variety development with economical traits. I played a major role for the development of 8- varieties released for general cultivation. During Ph. D; I have used GBS for the identification of loci connected to fiber quality. I found 11 novel QTLs connected to different quality traits.
