Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme

Ajit Varma mainly focuses on Botany, Piriformospora, Fungus, Endophyte and Agronomy. His work deals with themes such as Microorganism, Symbiosis, Mycorrhiza, Cell biology and Plant development, which intersect with Botany. His Piriformospora study incorporates themes from Arabidopsis thaliana, Inoculation, Chlorophyll, Arabidopsis and Shoot.

His study on Sebacinales is often connected to Hordeum vulgare as part of broader study in Fungus. His work carried out in the field of Endophyte brings together such families of science as Woody plant, Pteridophyte, Micropropagation, Secondary metabolite and Inflorescence. His Agronomy research includes themes of Pollutant, Soil ecology, Soil organic matter, Saline water and Rhizosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • Piriformospora indica, a Cultivable Plant-Growth-Promoting Root Endophyte (470 citations)
  • Piriformospora indica, a Cultivable Plant-Growth-Promoting Root Endophyte (470 citations)
  • PIRIFORMOSPORA INDICA, GEN. ET SP. NOV., A NEW ROOT-COLONIZING FUNGUS (344 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Botany, Piriformospora, Horticulture, Fungus and Agronomy. His Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mycorrhizal fungi, Arbuscular mycorrhiza, Symbiosis, Mycorrhiza and Rhizosphere. Ajit Varma interconnects Microorganism and Nutrient in the investigation of issues within Rhizosphere.

He is studying Sebacinales, which is a component of Piriformospora. The Fungus study combines topics in areas such as Biomass and Basidiomycota. His study in Agriculture extends to Agronomy with its themes.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (35.75%)
  • Piriformospora (31.78%)
  • Horticulture (12.85%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Piriformospora (31.78%)
  • Horticulture (12.85%)
  • German (1.40%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Ajit Varma spends much of his time researching Piriformospora, Horticulture, German, Microbiology and Agriculture. Piriformospora is a subfield of Botany that Ajit Varma tackles. His Botany research includes elements of Arabidopsis, Vernalization response, Repressor, Locus and Siderophore.

Ajit Varma has included themes like Serendipita indica and Oryza sativa in his Horticulture study. His Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Polyphenol oxidase, Trichoderma harzianum, Gene and Biofilm. His research in Agriculture intersects with topics in Biotechnology, Biofortification and Nutrient.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Transcriptional responses of soybean roots to colonization with the root endophytic fungus Piriformospora indica reveals altered phenylpropanoid and secondary metabolism. (17 citations)
  • Climatic factors influencing dengue incidence in an epidemic area of Nepal. (16 citations)
  • Piriformospora indica promotes the growth of the in-vitro-raised Cymbidium aloifolium plantlet and their acclimatization. (11 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Bacteria
  • Botany
  • Enzyme

Ajit Varma focuses on Piriformospora, Inoculation, Horticulture, Microbiology and Environmental chemistry. Piriformospora is a primary field of his research addressed under Botany. His Inoculation research integrates issues from Bacillus, Gene and Genetically modified rice.

His Horticulture study incorporates themes from Genetically modified crops, Symbiosis and Oryza sativa. In the subject of general Microbiology, his work in Antibiotics is often linked to Glycine, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil contamination, Pollutant, Firmicutes and Actinobacteria.
