Major Contribution in the Professional Field

Dr. Waghmare had been awarded BOYSCAST Fellowship (2001-02) by Department of Science and technology, Ministry of Science and Technology, New Delhi. Under the BOYSCAST Fellowship Program at University of Georgia, Athens, USA from March 27, 2002 to November 26, 2003. He worked on Cotton Genome Mapping and developed comparative genetic linkage map ( Gossypium hirsutum x Gossypium tomentosum ) in cotton. The map comprises of 589 loci in 52 linkage groups and total recombination length of 4259.4 cM. This map identifies structural rearrangements particularly terminal paracentric inversion on the chromosome 3, 10 and 15 that differentiate the present map from barbadense map. About 123 probes detected duplicate loci those mapped on 271 locations on the map. Nectarilessness a important characteristic that distinguishes a hawaiin endemic cotton ( G. tomentosum ) from other cottons was mapped as a discrete marker (Ne1) and located in the central region of chromosome 26. About 16 QTL loci associated with 11 morphological traits have been mapped on different chromosomes of tomentosum map. identified introgression from wild species G. tomentosum into cultivated cotton G. hirsutum in backcross (Bc3) populations. About 27.33% tomentosum loci showed introgression in the recurrent G. hirsutum background. The cotton fibre quality genes have also been mapped on particular chromosomes using mapping population developed from mutant genotypes. This research has paved the way for positional cloning of the candidate genes controlling fibre characteristics. Identification of duplicate genes in the diploid D genome led to identification of duplicate chromosome segments in Gossypium genome. In addition to this, he has developed good breeding material in Cotton (at CICR, Nagpur). Sveral entries/ advanced cultures have been evaluated and promoted in AICCIP trials. Identified three macromutants and studies inheritance of changed traits-

 

a) dwarf bushy mutant, b) dwarf crumpled leaf mutant, and c) viresense chlorophyll mutant. These mutants can be very well used as marker characters in genetic as well as molecular mapping and also as parents to reduce plant height in tall growing G. arboreum. Worked out inheritance of lint colour. Identified an independent new locus Lc 5 B responsible for light brown lint colour in upland cotton. Using aneuploids, i.e.monosonic and ditelosomic lines of Chinese Spring, identified 3 genes located on long arm of chromosomes 2A, 3A and 6B which imparts susceptibility to hexaploid bread wheat in homizygous condition . Identified mechanisms of resistance against loose smut i.e. embryonic resistance (Class 1), plumular bud resistance (Class 2) and adult plant resistance (Class 3)
