Molecular characterisation of bacterial & fungal communities in the Diabetic Foot Ulcer
2014-01-01 Kavitha S
Research. The study looked at pathogenic bacterial and fungal communities associated with diabetic foot ulcer that may play a significant role in the process of wound healing.
Influence of Host Factors and Microbial Community in Diabetic Wound Healing
2014-01-01 Bharath Prasad
Research. Bacterial infection in diabetic foot ulcers exacerbates the wound healing process. However, in addition, the host factors may play certain role in determining the wound progression and closure.
Effect of endophytes on photosynthetic efficiency of plants
2011-01-01 Sawmya Kotian
Post-graduate, 2011-2013, II year. Fungal endophytes present inside host tissues provide several advantages to the host plant. The study screened certain medicinal plants for endophytes and how these endophytes can improve the photosynthetic efficiency of these plants.
Screening and molecular characterisation of ubiquitous endophytes
2010-01-01 Milton Roy
Post-graduate, 2010-2012, II year. The study looks into fungal endophyte metabolomics using advanced techniques and also screened ubiquitous endophytes for their molecular diversity.
Molecular characterisation of microbes associated with diabetic foot ulcer
2010-01-01 Satyam Srivasatava
2010-2013, 6th Semester. Select species of bacteria associated with diabetic foot ulcer were screened for their antibiotic sensitivity profile. Biofilm producing capabilities of these bacterial strains were also studied.
Fungal endophytes from the orchid Pholidota pallida and their biotechnological potential
2006-01-01 Aparajit Sridharan
2006-2008, 6th Semester. Fungal endophytes from medicinally important Pholidota were isolated and screened for their biotechnological potential. The extracellular enzyme production capabilities were studied in detail.
Analysis of Siderophore Production by Fungal Endophytes
2007-01-01 Urmila Das
2007-2010, 6th Semester. Production of siderophores, specific chelators of iron, by fungal endophytes was studied using different techniques.
