About Me: Presently Additional Director in AIMB, working on formulation of microbial consortia for biodegradation of organic wastes, production & purification of protease,lipase,their molecular characterization
Spiders make their webs to perform a wide range of tasks and are very useful for their daily life. They produce seven different types of silks for different uses. Spider silk is one of the most versatile materials in nature with great strength and flexibility. Presently the interest has grown towards spider silk due to a combination of its mechanical properties and non-polluting way of production. This silk can be produced synthetically for medicinal purposes in construction of artificial tendons and as substrate for human's cell growth.
Certain genetic disorders like phenylketonuria and urea cycle disorder, sufficiently hamper the patient's normal life style, inspite of rigorous medication is still incurable. Serious cases leads to liver transplant and even in death. With the advancement of medical microbiology, the importance of gut microbes is being realised. These microbes are being genetically programmed to provide greater precision, safety and efficacy for disease treatment. Gut microbiota are useful in digestion, of certain food which cannot be digested normally and plays an important role in immune system
Organic plastics or biopolymers are the polymers derived from biological sources, renewable and help in fossil fuels conservation. Algae can be grown in a variety of environment and different types of plastics are obtained from the different algae species with high yield. The algae biopolymer production requires cultivation of algae in the presence of nutrient medium containing nitrogen and source of carbon (CO2), light energy, favorable temperature, pH and salinity. The cultivation takes place in nitrogen containing nutrient medium (continuous culture) followed by limited supply of nitrogen achieving the senescent phase to enhance biopolymer production. These biopolymers are useful in industries and municipal works with the reduction in pollution.
Climate change alters the agriculture production and incomes. Several studies have reported that climate change trends are important for determining both past and future impacts on crop yields at sub continental to global scales. Current initiatives to address climate-related risks are heavily oriented towards reactive emergency response. To save agricultural livelihoods, there is urgent need for a shift from this reactive approach to proactive climate risk management. Agriculture sector can contribute to mitigation as a consequence of improving productivity and sustainability.
As of late there has been a consistent quest for new water-solvent polysaccharides, especially those created by microorganisms. These biopolymers have the great interest due to their application potential in food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical and oil businesses, where they are utilized as thickening, balancing out and emulsifying operators oil industries. These biopolymers have the rheological properties so they are used for the identification of new production sources.
Natural Dyes are the colors extracted from plants, insects & minerals (table). Natural Dyes along with natural fabrics are protective to skin. These can improve human body's aura along with the inhibition of the bacterial growth due to sweat and other reasons. However synthetic dyes are in majority toxic in nature and increase the toxicity of the sweat manifold, which results in various allergies
An important challenge in nanotechnology is to tailor optical, electric and electronic properties of nanoparticles by controlling the size and shape. Utilization of microbe for synthesis of nanoparticles with different chemical composition, size/shapes and controlled monodispersity to develop environmental friendly nanoparticle without using toxic chemicals in the synthesis protocol.
