Centre for Genetic Manipulation of Crop Plants

The Centre was set up to undertake research on genetic engineering and molecular breeding of oilseed brassicas. The Centre has received major financial support from the National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) and its subsidiary the Mother Dairy and Fruit and Vegetable Pvt. Ltd. for the last 15 years. The Centre has developed two hybrids in oilseed mustard (Brassica juncea) DMH-1 (CMS/restorer based) and DMH-11 (based on transgenic technology). DMH-1 has been released by the ministry of Agriculture for commercial cultivation in the mustard growing areas of north-western India and DMH-11 is undergoing bio-safety tests with funding from DBT under its BIPP Programme. Other major activities of the Centre are research on genome analysis, gene tagging and "marker assisted" breeding in oilseed mustard and allied Brassica species.
