Rupesh Kumar Singh is a graduate of botany and chemistry, from the CSJM University Kanpur, India, in 2002. He received his M.Sc. degree in biotechnology from CSJM University Kanpur, India in 2004, and received his Ph.D. degree in Biotechnology “Thesis headline-Transcription profiling of low temperature responsive genes in Cicer microphyllum” in 2011, from Kumaun University, Nainital, India. He started working in Department of Biology, UMINHO, Braga, Portugal in 2013 to investigate bioactive compounds of Hypericum perforatum and corresponding genes involved in production and accumulation of these compounds in the plant. Present investigation interest is “elicitors mediated induced accumulation of phenolic compounds in Vitis vinifera grapes” and study of this mechanism (interaction between elicitors and V. vinifera) at transcriptomic, metabolomics and proteomic level. Rupesh Kumar Singh is a Postdoc researcher at present in Department of Agronomy at the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro and Researcher in Chemistry Centre of Vila-Real, Portugal.
