Muhammad Irfan Fareed is a professional agricultural biotechnologist who specializes in applying biotechnology techniques and principles to improve agricultural practices and enhance crop production. Here are some common professional achievements: 1. Developed transgenic disease-resistant plants: During Master degree in one of the prestigious university of Pakistan NUST university we biotechnologists have developed methods to engineer Nicotiana benthamiana and cotton plants with increased resistance to Tomato leaf curl new Delhi virus diseases. This achievement has helped farmers minimize losses due to CLCuV and ToLCuNDV diseases and reduce the reliance on chemical pesticides. 2. During PhD research we studied the whole cascade of RNAi in Arabidospis and C. elegans and reported two new genes which are responsible to run the whole RNAi machinery.
