Hello, my name is
Dr. Nitesh S D
Ph.D.(Agri.) Genetics and Plant Breeding
Co-Founder of Krishi Junction
Creative Editor in Krishi Science
Agriculture Data Scientist
I am doctoral degree graduate in Agriculture specialized in Genetics and Plant Breeding. My interest in Legume Crops and
Programming based Data analysis.
I am a Plant Breeder with Professional Coding Skills
I am a plant breeder with a focus on legume crops. My research involves studies in legume plants that are adapted to different climatic and soil conditions, as well as incorporating desirable traits such as disease resistance and improved nutritional value. I have hands-on-experience working with legumes, including chickpeas, lentils, peas, green gram and black gram. Additionally, I have expertise in conventional breeding methods as well as modern biotechnologies such as genetic engineering and marker–assisted selection. My ultimate goal is to develop legume varieties that are resilient, nutritious, and profitable for producers.
I am highly experienced in programming and coding for agricultural research data analysis, and I am proficient in creating advanced graphical representations of the data. I have experience with a range of programming languages, including Python, R, and MATLAB. I have also developed custom algorithms for data mining and analysis. I have worked on various data analysis projects, including crop yield estimation, soil fertility assessment, pest and disease analysis, time-series analysis, biometrical analysis, and crop loss estimation. Additionally, I have experience in developing machine-learning models for precision agriculture.
I also have experience in using a variety of bioinformatics tools and software, including sequence analysis tools such as BLAST, gene expression analysis tools such as EdgeR, and data visualization tools such as R. I am familiar with the basic concepts of computational biology and I have a good understanding of the underlying algorithms and principles. I have also used a variety of software packages, such as Python and Perl, to automate bioinformatics tasks.
