About Me

Hello! I’m Abdullah Mohammad Shohael.

 

I have joined the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) as a research collaborator after completing my Ph.D. in Agricultural Biotechnology from Chungbuk National University, South Korea in 2006 where I worked on the oversee of aquaporin functions of drought-tolerant mechanisms in rice. While pursuing my JSPS Postdoctoral fellowship from 2007 to 2009 at Tsukuba University, Japan my prior responsibility was to develop genetically modified lettuce plants harboring a taste modifying protein Miraculin. As a Research-Associate of the University of Florida (2009-2011), I attained my research goal successfully by developing a model on Greening and Canker resistant transgenic Citrus cultivars.


I have a long research track on plant tissue culture, commercial production of plant cells through the bioreactor, and plant genetic engineering. I have published articles in many international journals and books (total citations 1030+, h-index 15, i10-index 17; RG score 22.37). My key research interests to isolate novel genes from local biodiversity, genome engineering, and genome editing approach to develop environmentally resilient plants. I am also interested in metabolomics, metabolic engineering, secondary metabolism study from various endangered species, and their conservation.


As a coordinator of the institutional biosafety committee, I am trying to establish institutional biosafety & biosecurity guidelines and procedures. Conducting various activities and innovative strategy development are my duty as an assistant director in the Institutional Quality Assurance Cell of the Jahangirnagar University (IQAC, JU). I am arranging campaigns to create public awareness, and motivation towards the new technologies.

My Area of Interest
Teaching

Teachers do more than teach, and their impact extends far beyond the classroom. As a teacher, you are more than just an educator: you are a mentor, a confidant, and a friend. One of the most common reasons to become a teacher is to make a difference in the lives of as many students as you can.

Research

Research allows you to pursue your interests, to learn something new, to hone your problem-solving skills, and to challenge yourself in new ways. Work closely with a faculty mentor and have the opportunity to connect with other faculty and other student researchers who work in your area of interest.

Science Communication

The work carried out in a lab is greatly dependent on communication between the people working in it, to ensure instructions are given and receive accurately and applicably. Communicating in a team is vital and makes the organization of a process even and efficient.

Startups

Startups may be small companies but they can play a significant role in economic growth. They create more jobs which mean more employment, and more employment means an improved economy. Not only that, but startups can also contribute to economic dynamism by spurring innovation and injecting competition.
