Research:A unit of CSIR. Its R&D units consist of Biotech, pharmacology and natural product chemistry. Its biotech section has facility of pilot plant, with Micro-processor controlled fomenters (1- 4,000 liter capacity), and state-of–art equipment required for Microbiology, Bio-Chemistry, Enzymology, Genetic Engineering and Bio-Chemical Engineering. isolation of microbes, their identification (by both conventional as well as molecular markers), characterization, -preservation and screening for specific microbial enzymes and secondary metabolites are carried out. The microbial strains encoding such enzymes are identified up to species level by 16S rRNA gene typing. The specific enzymes are purifiedto homogeneity using FPLC. Terminal sequencing is undertaken for designing the primers for the location & cloning of desired gene(s). Selected wild type and recombinant strains are grown at lab to pilot scale fermentors.The strategies of scale-up or scale-down are selected depending upon the nature of the process under study. The pilot plant is well equipped for down stream processing of the microbial biomass for the isolation of desired biomolecules/products. The Molecular biology and Genetic Engineering laboratories are well equipped to undertake gene cloning, heterologous expression, sequencing, RACE and RTPCR of selected genes. The lab has ABI 310 automated DNA sequence and Shimadzu automated N-terminal protein sequencer for amino acid sequencing.
