Award Citation:

Dr Sonti has made outstanding contribution in the area of plant-pathogen interactions. His work has led to the identification of novel virulence genes which led to a better understanding of pathogenic function of these genes. This has also provided insight into the different ways by which host plant specialization might be achieved. His work on marker-assisted breeding has led to the incorporation of disease resistance characteristics into the genetic background of the commercially important Samba Mahsuri rice variety.
