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.
- 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
