Abdul Mujeeb Kazi

Abdul Mujeeb Kazi, Pakistani plant geneticist (Sukkur 27 October 1939 –


One of the world’s foremost active experts in wheat cytogenetics & breeding

Pioneer of synthetic hexploid  wheat production in the world

Produced a large number of intergeneric and interspecific hybrids

Developed perfected cytological techniques that enhance breeding efficiency and facilitate molecular diagnostic applications

Produced 1,400 synthetic lines in wheat

Developed maize-wheat crosses for producing wheat doubled haploids

Established protocols for molecular cytogenetic technique such as C-banding and fluorescence in situ hybridization

Created numerous complex combinations in the wheat family, including interspecific hybrids across the wheat genomes, fertile amphiploids, and self-fertile backcross-1 germplasm
