Experiences and Activities

Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria isolation and Characterization

Rhizosphere organisms can establish symbiotic relationship with leguminous plants by providing the plants with different growth promoting chemicals such as indole acetic acid and by fixing atmospheric nitrogen. The aim of the project is to isolate these potential plant growth promoting organisms and study their genetic makeup.

Pesticide biodegradation project

Bioremediation with pesticide degrading bacteria can be used to decontaminate organophosphate residues from pesticide contaminated soil. The aim of the project was to isolate those potential degraders and characterize them.
