Mohammad Anwar Hossain
Dr. Mohammad Anwar Hossain is a professor in the Department of Genetics and Plant Breeding, Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh, Bangladesh. He received his BSc in Agriculture and MS in Genetics and Plant Breeding from BAU. He also received an MSc in Agriculture from Kagawa University, Japan, in 2008, and a Ph.D. in Abiotic Stress Physiology and Molecular Biology from Ehime University, Japan, in 2011 through a Monbukagakusho scholarship. As a JSPS postdoctoral researcher in 2015–2017, he worked on isolating low-phosphorus, stress-tolerant genes from rice at the University of Tokyo, Japan. His current research program focuses on understanding physiological, biochemical, and molecular mechanisms underlying abiotic stress tolerance in crop plants and the generation of stress-tolerant and nutrient-efficient plants through breeding and biotechnology. He has more than sixty peer-reviewed publications to his credit and has edited twelve books, including this one.
