Salt-tolerant bacteria improve crop yields

Uzbek microbiologist Dilfuza Egamberdieva hopes to apply her new agricultural technique soon in Uzbekistan to boost the yield of economically important crops such as wheat, cotton, tomato and cucumber. She presented her work at this year's TWAS General Meeting.

My Hero stories: Dilfuza Egamberdieva
UNESCO and L'Oreal Paris have just awarded their 2006 Fellowships to honor, fund and encourage extraordinary Women in Science. The research projects this year focus on the preservation of biodiversity, the understanding of life, the use of new detection methods to optimize diagnoses, and the surveillance of ecosystems. One of these new UNESCO-L'OREAL Fellows is ecocitizen Dilfuza Egamberdiyeva, an Environmental Microbiologist from Uzbekistan.
Profiles of women scientists in Asia
Their inspirational stories
International mobility is becoming increasingly important for a successful
career.It is important to encourage young people into research and provide them with good opportunities and conditions to pursue science that will help to develop their country.The goal of Dilfuza's Lab is to elevate high-quality research work from Central Asia to international standards.
