Biography

World water demand has tripled over the past 50 years, with water tables being depleted at a faster rate in heavily irrigated regions, such as, the U.S. Southern Great Plains. Drought-susceptible genotypes exposed to water and heat stress exhibited impaired photosynthesis, reduced chlorophyll content and lower biomass, with an early transition to the dry seed stage and poor seed set. The physiological traits such as leaf epicuticular wax and cooler canopy temperatures have substantial impact on wheat grain yield. Dr. Suheb’s project of investigating the genetic variation and genomic regions for leaf epicuticular wax and cooler canopies was awarded and supported by doctorate Pathways fellowship at Texas A&M University. The quantification of leaf epicuticular wax and measure of leaf canopy temperature is very easy and are good predictor of drought tolerance in wheat. Dr. Suheb was first to investigate the effect of leaf epicuticular wax and cooler canopies as composite physiological traits in improving wheat grain yields. His dissertation involved the genomic dissection of the recombinant inbred line population using a set of microsatellites and Golden Gate Assay of Illumina based 90K infinium SNPs chip at North Dakota State University. He successfully investigated the co-localized stable genomic regions for leaf epicuticular wax, cooler canopy temperatures and grain yield components using recombinant inbred line population. The genomic regions on chromosome 2B, 3B, 5B and 7B were significantly associated with the physiological and agronomical traits.

Dr. Suheb’s investigation of these stable genomic regions would be a landmark study for future scientist in marker assisted selection for physiological and agronomical traits. Dr. Suheb have also investigated phenotypic trait correlations between the physiological traits and grain yield components across five environments over two years. These results are groundbreaking considering leaf epicuticular wax and cooler canopies making a significant impact on drought tolerance. These results are novel and published in many Crop Sciences, Plant Molecular Biology and North American Biotechnology Council conferences and the dissertation article have also been viewed and downloaded by many scientists all over the world.

I would like to mention another incredible piece of research accomplished by Dr. Suheb at the University of Virginia. He is the first scientist to demonstrate the conversion of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) QTLs into polymorphic markers used for marker assisted selection in plant breeding field at University of Virginia. This technique help to design the primers across SNPs resistance alleles in Cowpea. So far researcher’s in plant breeding field have done many SNPs QTL studies and have identified significant genes associated with biotic and abiotic stress tolerance, unfortunately those identified SNPs were not used further in breeding purposes. Dr. Suheb’s innovative technique help to design the significant primers on the SNPs through basepair mismatch technique. Dr. Suheb with his exceptional expertise was successfully able to develop primers for cowpea aphid resistant alleles and cowpea fusarium wilt for race 3 and race 4.  This work is very fruitful and speed up the selection or disease screening process in cowpea breeding program by marker assisted selection. Another part of these designed primers were used for close mapping for the resistant genes. Dr. Suheb have successfully presented his research in international conferences and in front of diverse group of international plant breeder scientist. His work showed guidance to different research labs all over the world specializing in plant breeding such as University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, Kirk House Trust Foundation, United Kingdom, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, Savannah Agricultural Research Station, Tamale, Ghana and University of Agriculture, Nigeria have adopted and referenced his state-of-art technique in their research fields.

Dr. Suheb had shown exceptional devotion and capability in helping to train these new students at University of Virginia. He had mentored and trained many students over the past couple of years at, he trained many scientists from East and West Africa agricultural research institutes funded by Kirk House Trust Foundation. In addition he is an expertise in statistical analyses and help many research scientists and graduate students in genetic and phenotypic data analyzations and manuscript preparations. Dr. Suheb also judges other’s research work as an excellent reviewer in international journals such as Journal of Agricultural Sciences and Journal of Plant Studies. Therefore, not only does he play a key role in our present research, he has also played a key role in educating and judging future scientists in this field.
