Educational Background

Ph.D., Genetics, Max-Planck Institute, Germany, 2005

Profile/About Me

Over the past 14 years, Dr. Mukhtar has served as faculty at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), progressing through the academic ranks from Assistant Professor to Professor. It brings him great enthusiasm to announce his upcoming transition, as he eagerly anticipates joining Clemson University on July 01. Dr. Mukhtar completed his Ph.D. research on Arabidopsis transcriptional regulatory networks at the Max Planck Institute in Cologne, Germany. His postdoctoral research, conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Jeff Dangl at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, focused on Arabidopsis-pathogens protein-protein interactions. Using genomics, bioinformatics, and systems-level analyses, he collaborated with the Dana Farber Cancer Institute & Center for Cancer Systems Biology to create the first large-scale Arabidopsis-pathogens protein-protein interaction network. This four-year post-doc led to a first-author publication in Science (The Arabidopsis-pathogens interactome; Mukhtar et al. Science 2011) and several co-authored papers, including the Arabidopsis interactome map, global mapping of G-protein interactions, and sequencing and assembly of 19 strains of the pathogenic bacterium P. syringae using next-generation sequencing approaches (Science 2011, Molecular Systems Biology 2011, PLoS Pathogens 2011).

As a prominent academic leader, he has a global impact through his role as the Director of The Multinational Arabidopsis Steering Committee (MASC), a collaborative effort involving 34 countries since its establishment in 1990. Serving as the Chair of the "Plant Immunity" subcommittee within MASC, he contributes to crafting annual reports and shaping the future of Arabidopsis immunity research. Additionally, He was actively involved in the Southern Section of the American Society of Plant Biologists (ss-ASPB) as Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary/Treasurer, and Executive Member, organizing impactful conferences and symposia. In academia, he organizes workshops on "Systems Biology & Machine Learning" at the Plant & Animal Genome (PAG) meeting and introduced another on "Data Science" at PAG Australia. Dr. Mukhtar has an impressive history of mentoring students who have received numerous awards and scholarships, such as the Rising Star Award, NSF Graduate Research Scholar Program fellowship, Samuel Barker award, Ireland Research Travel Scholarship, Outstanding Student Development Award, Dean's Outstanding Student Award and Dean's scholarship. Additionally, his students have been honored with various awards for poster and oral presentations, regional, and national meetings/conferences. His excellence in teaching is evident through accolades such as the 2021 President's Award for Excellence in Teaching and the CAS Dean's Award for Excellence in Teaching. He is recently awarded the Odessa Woolfolk Community Service Award (2023).

Research Interests

The research in Dr. Mukhtar laboratory spans interdisciplinary projects in genomics, multi-omics, systems biology, network science, and computer science, with a focus on addressing climate change, food security, and health disparity questions. Leveraging Arabidopsis, soybean, and duckweed, his laboratory utilizes single-cell/single-nuclei sequencing and phenomics to uncover molecular mechanisms in plant response to biotic and abiotic stresses. Furthermore, his laboratory also focuses on human health disparities including systems- and network biology approaches to predict therapeutic targets for human diseases. Specifically, the key projects include (i) single-nuclei multiome analyses and network science in Arabidopsis and soybean in response to heat, drought, and salt as well as biotic stresses, (ii) single-cell sequencing in duckweed to understand plant growth trajectory, and identification of novel genes to increase protein production, (iii) metatranscriptomics for understanding the roles of beneficial microbes in plant growth and stress responses, (iv) employing network biology and Artificial Intelligence for gene function predictions across animal and plant systems, and (v) conducting multiomics analyses on human diseases, examining health disparities between Black and White populations.
