"An innovative and creative Plant biologist with sound biological background and computational skills, focused towards decoding the complex molecular programming in plants." While Growing up as a researcher, Dr. Seth has been motivated by his sweet interaction with nature and was awarded with doctoral degree in 2020, from Guru Nanak Dev University, India. During his research journey, He been involved in various plant-related experimental programs, with keen interest towards understanding the physiological, environmental, and molecular aspects in various industrial crop and high-altitude medicinal plant species. He has also being acting as editorial members and peer-reviewer for some well reputed peer-reviewed journals such as Frontiers, horticulture research, scientific reports, genomics, and experimental and environmental botany. Being practical and skeptical in nature, He has more belief in science, as ‘science’ is vastly more stimulating to imagination. With the curiosity to interact with the nature, Dr. Seth is a highly motivated researcher with aim to decode the complex molecular programming in plants.
