A Genome-guided investigation of Essential Metabolite Biosynthetic Pathways in Pomegaranate (Punica granatum) peel and seeds
Pomegranate is a valuable crop and known for its therapeutic values. Our lab has already investigated pomegranate peel’s anti-diabetic properties in-vivo and anti-cancerous properties in-silico. We propose to sequence the whole pomegranate genome, which will be first of its kind.
Significance of this project:
The purpose of this project is to -
- Whole genome sequence of pomegranate with comprehensive functional, annotations under multi-levels (such as gene, protein function and protein structure),
- Comparative analyses between non model pomegranate and model plants using different algorithms,
- Composed sequences; protein-protein interaction and pathway analysis
