Rupesh Kailasrao Deshmukh


I am working as a visiting professor at Laval University in Quebec, Canada. I have obtained my Ph.D. degree in agriculture biotechnology at SRTMU, Nanded, India. I moved to Quebec, Canada for postdoc where I worked on molecular mechanism involved in silicon uptake in plants. Eventually, I and my research team discovered the evolutionarily conserved feature, a spacing between NPA domains required for the functionality of silicon transporting aquaporins. We have identified silicon transporter genes in several plant species. I did another postdoc at Missouri University, USA, where I was involved in research focussing on Abiotic stress tolerance in soybean. My interest spans diverse fields in plant science covering computational biology, gene identification through approaches like QTL mapping and GWAS, and elucidation of molecular mechanism through the integration of omics approaches. I always advocate the sustainable development and agriculture transformation in an eco-friendly manner. I have published more than 40 papers in reputed journals. As a visiting professor, I am involved in a project aiming at the enhancement of biotic and abiotic stress by silicon supplementation. I am a member of many academic societies and served as editorial board member and guest editor.
