A Separate aspectic section is dedicated for microbiological work. Investigations includes both pathogenic and non-pathogenic microorganism. Major area of research for the team is to isolate and characterize microbial strains, investigate antimicrobial potential of test compounds/matrix, and isolation of bioactive components from microbial culture.

Key activities are:

  • Isolation and characterization of microorganism

  • Antimicrobial activity (antifungal and antibacterial activities):

MIC determination, Zone of Inhibition determination (well diffusion and disc diffusion)

  • Biofilm formation and impact

  • Isolation of bioactive components from microorganism

  • Antibiotic resistance: Molecular mechanism of microbial resistance
