Research

Environmental Microbiome
Our group brings together an understanding of the biodiversity, the physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology of microbes in diverse environments such as hot spring, desert, and salty lakes. These studies are of crucial importance to deepen our knowledge of how ecosystems function.
Plant-Microbe Interactions
Moreover, we are investigating the interactions between microbes and plants at the molecular level, and evaluating the mechanisms underlying plant-microbe interactions. The knowledge will help in the development of successful biological agents and plant growth stimulators boosting crop resiliency under abiotic and biotic stress conditions in a sustainable manner.
Medicinal plant biotechnology

The main goal of our research group is to understand the mechanistic basis of host–endophyte relationship production of endophyte-derived bioactive compounds. We also study the biology of medicinal plants affected by various abiotic stresses and evaluate optimal doses of organo-mineral fertilizers on plant growth and phytochemical compounds of medicinal plants.

 

Research objectives:

-          to investigate the diversity of endophytic bacterial communities  associated with medicinal plants

-          to determine and characterize the endophyte derived bioactive compounds

-          to evaluate the effect of organo-mineral fertilizers (compost, biochar, minerals, and their combination) on the growth properties and phytochemical compounds of medicinal plants
