2012 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Biochemistry, Solanaceae, Nicotiana tabacum, Ripening and Cell wall are his primary areas of study. His study in Spermine, Spermidine, Plant cell and Amino acid falls within the category of Biochemistry. Avtar K. Handa has included themes like Osmotic pressure and Protein biosynthesis in his Solanaceae study.
His studies in Nicotiana tabacum integrate themes in fields like Intracellular, Botany and Tissue culture. His Ripening research includes themes of Genetically modified tomato and Pectin. In his work, Transgene, Cation binding and Enzyme is strongly intertwined with Lycopersicon, which is a subfield of Pectin.
Avtar K. Handa mainly focuses on Biochemistry, Ripening, Horticulture, Lycopersicon and Botany. His Spermine, Spermidine, Polyamine, Enzyme and Solanaceae study are his primary interests in Biochemistry. His work carried out in the field of Solanaceae brings together such families of science as Nicotiana tabacum and Tissue culture.
His Ripening research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Gene expression, Transgene, Genetically modified tomato, Pectin and Complementary DNA. Pectin is closely attributed to Cell wall in his study. His Lycopersicon study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pectinase, Pectinesterase and Polyethylene glycol.
Avtar K. Handa mostly deals with Agroforestry, Biochemistry, Spermidine, Polyamine and Putrescine. His work on Jatropha curcas expands to the thematically related Biochemistry. His Spermidine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transgene and Spermine.
The Polyamine study combines topics in areas such as Catabolism, Biotechnology, Metabolomics and Ornithine. His Putrescine study incorporates themes from RNA, Transcription and Protein biosynthesis. His research in Genetically modified tomato tackles topics such as Solanum which are related to areas like Ripening.
Avtar K. Handa spends much of his time researching Putrescine, Polyamine, Spermidine, Gene and Spermine. His Putrescine research is included under the broader classification of Biochemistry. While working in this field, Avtar K. Handa studies both Biochemistry and ARG2.
His research in Polyamine intersects with topics in Methyl jasmonate and Metabolomics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Genetically modified tomato, Salicylic acid, Biotechnology, Pathogenesis-related protein and Innate immune system. The concepts of his Mutant study are interwoven with issues in DNA demethylation, DNA and Demethylase.
