Biography & Research Interest
Welcome Dr Geetika Trivedi to Join the Editorial Board of Journal of Plant and Environmental Research.
Experienced, motivated with over 8 years experience in conducting experiments from conception to analysis to solve complex scientific problems. A strong research background and an extensive experience in genomics, and molecular biology with expertise in library preparation along with genomics data analysis and data interpretation from next generation sequencing platforms (WGS, Nextera, MatePair, Amplicon, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq). Organized, self-motivated, eager to acquire new knowledge and skills on a regular basis, independent thinker and ability to work in a collaborative environment. With a background in genomics and molecular biology skills I want to expand my knowledge by using cutting edge genomics approaches to solve complex biological problems.
