Nourinejhad Zarghani received his Master’s and PhD degrees from University of Tabriz and Tarbiat Modares University in Iran, respectively. He has worked on viruses of fruit crops and vegetables since he was a M.Sc. student, for detection and estimating population genetic diversity and newly investigating Virus-Plant Interactions and production of plant virus based gene expression vectors.

 

Research Focus

My Research and Educational program for next five years emphasizes on plant virus genes functions and their sequence and functional variability to expand our understanding Plant-Virus interactions in order to optimise management strategies and making an ally from an enemy.
