Studies on Biofilm formation and kinetics of denitrification in Paracoccus sp. W1b . Study of the genes involved in the denitrification and their abundance in denitrifying sludge.
Bicontrol of phytopathogen Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora by quorum quenching approach .
Polysaccharide hydrolases: Production and purification of Polysaccharide Hydrolase Enzymes such as Cellulases, Xylanases and Pectinases from microbes. Study the application of enzymes’ mixture for enzymatic hydrolysis of the complex plant polysaccharide material such as Cellulose, Xylan, and Pectin to produce simple fermentable monosaccharides for production of bioethanol.
