Recommendation Letter

 

Professor Dr. Hit Kishore Goswami, former Head of the Department of Genetics at University of Bhopal, Bhopal (M.P., India) is seeking a visiting professorship to enable him engage in some collaborative research and also to teach courses (in English language) in the broad area of genetics (both plant and human genetics), including molecular genetics.  I have known Professor Goswami for several years now, both professionally and personally, and I have the least hesitation to state that Dr HK Goswami possesses an unusually broad range of expertise in modern biology, more particularly in the area of genetics of the lower vascular plants and of human genetics (especially cancer cytogenetics, genetic toxicology and twin studies), and in these domains he is indeed authoritative. The very impressive bio-data detailed in his application amply supports his recognition as an accomplished scientist. The conferment of awards and honours upon him by several organizations, listed in his application, is itself a fine testimony to his high standing both as a scientist and as a teacher. It is noteworthy that Dr Goswami is the recipient of the prestigious Professor Pran Nath Mehra Memorial Award for the year 1998 in recognition of his exemplary contributions in genetics. On personal grounds I found Dr Goswami likeable yet firm, possessed of good judgment and enormous enthusiasm for his work. Over the years he has only strengthened himself to justify fully the opinions of contemporary scientists both in India and abroad.  Since 1981, Dr Goswami has been running successfully an international journal, named BIONATURE.

Dr Goswami is well known for his several original contributions in Isoetes (a fern-ally) and Ophioglossum (adder’s-tongue fern): for example, heterosporous sporangia in Isoetes, x-chromosomal mechanism and highly conserved DNA sequences cross-matched with human y-chromosome, persisting presence of non-centromeric chromatin bodies in Isoetes (as well as in human pre-cancerous cells); population genetics of Ophioglossum, chromosomal eliminations as a mechanism in Ophioglossum to generate low-numbered species, like O. eliminatum, and detection of microchromosomes in Ophioglossum.  Contributions in human genetics are numerous, which include specifically the finding of somatic mutations in foetal haemoglobin loci and chromosomal aberrations in human beings exposed to MIC gas leak in Bhopal.

Dr Goswami has been a visiting Professor at Keimyung University, Korea; Dongsan Medical Centre, Taegu, S. Korea; Yasmaguchi University, Ube, Japan: Botanical Institute of Hamburg, Germany; Institute of Human Genetics, Heidelberg, Germany; and Animal Institute, Department of Genetics, Kosice, Slovakia. I am pleased to support the application and recommend the name of Professor Dr. Hit Kishore Goswami for the award of a visiting professorship/fellowship or in other capacity as a teacher to serve as a faculty at your institution to teach Cell Biology, Cytogenetics andGenetics (Classical and Molecular), and Bioinformatics, and also to explore collaborative research in biodiversity and conservation. His monographic work on Aquatic biodiversity and related publications are also quite commendable..  I am sure Dr. Goswami will prove as an asset with his versatile background.

Subject: Recommendation Letter in favour of the Candidature of Dr. H. K.Goswami, For A position of FACULTY in your department

I am sincerely delighted to write this letter of recommendation to support the candidature of Dr H. K.Goswami who has retired as Professor of Genetics from Barkatullah University, Bhopal India. Dr Hit Kishore, as I call him, was my student in 1957-60 batch of B.Sc. I have seen him rising from a school teacher to the university professor and during this 45 year long journey, he has many laurels to his academic achievements. He has been a very dedicated teacher of cell biology, cytogenetics, botany and human genetics and has established department of Genetics at Bhopal of which he was founder head of the department for more than 20 yrs. He founded the Society of Bionaturalists (1980) and a Journal Bionature ( 1981), which are identified at the International level.

I am a retired senior botanist and I know for certain that his contributions to Botany are of great fundamental nature. This is evidenced by numerous citations of his work on Chromosme studies on Isoetes and Ophioglossum, two lower plant genera, of great evolutionary importance. His concept of origin of heterospory within a sporangium might have been associated with DNA methylation is gaining gradual academic support.

Hit Kishore’s contribution to Human Genetics and Ecological genetics in the broadest sense are also internationally recognized and cited in books and research papers written by others. In my opinion he is too good a teacher and a wonderful biologist.

I have no reservations and strongly recommend him for the position in your department. He wants to continue teaching and his work, is a matter of great pride and pleasure for me. I wish him a grand future at this age.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

This is my personal privilege to write a letter of recommendation in favour of Professor H. K.Goswami from Bhopal who is an outstanding teacher of repute and has been so much active both as a teacher and researcher in various fields of biology. He handles problems with his novel approach and offers fundamental approach to understand the mechanism as exemplified by his published work on very few selected but continued efforts for more than thirty years on the same plant animal and or the problem related with the subject. In human biology and genetics his interests on twins started in 1964; on cancer cytogenetics in 1968, on human migrations and haemoglobin variations in 1970; all of which are being carried over for the past 40 years .

Dr Goswami is well known for his several original contributions on  Isoetes  and Ophioglossum: for example, heterosporous sporangia in Isoetes, x-chromosomal mechanism and highly conserved DNA sequences cross-matched with human y-chromosome, persisting presence of non-centromeric chromatin bodies in Isoetes (as well as in human pre-cancerous cells); population genetics of Ophioglossum, chromosomal eliminations as a mechanism in Ophioglossum to generate low-numbered species, like O. eliminatum, and detection of microchromosomes in Ophioglossum.  Contributions in human genetics are numerous, which include specifically the finding of somatic mutations in foetal haemoglobin loci and chromosomal aberrations in human beings exposed to MIC gas leak in Bhopal.

Dr Goswami has been a visiting Professor at Keimyung University, Korea; Dongsan Medical Centre, Taegu, S. Korea; Yasmaguchi University, Ube, Japan: Botanical Institute of Hamburg, Germany; Institute of Human Genetics, Heidelberg, Germany; and Animal Institute, Department of Genetics, Kosice, Slovakia.

I am pleased to support the application and recommend the name of Professor Dr. Hit Kishore Goswami for the award of a visiting professorship/fellowship to serve as a guest faculty at your institution to teach Cell Biology, Cytogenetics and Genetics (Classical and Molecular), Ecological Genetics and Bioinformatics. His experimental approaches are highly innovative and I am sure his joining would greatly enhance scientific potential in the laboratory.

I wish him continued success!!.
