Science is in her blood: The GCP blog post about Dr. Zeba I. Seraj

In their blog site on December 21st, 2012, GCP (Generation Challenge Program) has focused Dr. Zeba Islam Seraj, Professor, BMB-DU for her brilliant work in crop breeding involving molecular genetics. GCP was created by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) in 2003 with the mission to use genetic diversity and advanced plant sciences to improve crops suitable for regions vulnerable against  abiotic stresses. More than 200 partners drawn from the CGIAR centers, academia, regional and national research programs and capacity enhancement were involved in the program to assist the researchers of the developing world to  gain access to the advanced technologies for  properly utilizing plant genetic diversity.  The post illustrated how Dr. Zeba started her career in science working on animals in Glasgow University and then switched over to plant science with more application oriented approaches. She is currently working on development of salinity and drought tolerant rice varieties with a view to  overcoming global food shortage.  The GCP blog post can be accessed with a click  here.
