Green Biotechnology

Department: Bioinformatics and Biosciences

Dr. Erum Dilshad

Designation: Head/Supervisor

Research group head Profile

Dr. Erum Dilshad: PhD in Plant Biotechnology, with main focus on enhancement of antimalarial compound by genetic transformation of Artemisia species along with its phytochemical analysis including cancer cell line studies.

Dr. Arshia Amin Butt: PhD in Microbiology and molecular biotechnology. Main areas of focus are taxonomy and systematics, diversity analysis form extreme environments, characterization and validation of Novel bacteria from extreme environments, tissue culture and transformation, bacterial metabolites encapsulation.

Introduction of the group

Research is focused on production of transgenics of both medicinal and edible crops for enhancement of secondary metabolites, tolerance against biotic and abiotic stress along with their phytochemical analysis. It also involves establishing plant tissue culture, biological evaluation of synthetic and natural compounds and cancer cell line studies and Nanobiotechnology.

The group will also work on diverse areas within the domain of Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Biotechnology, Dairy Microbiology, Systematics and Taxonomy, Tissue Culture and bacterial metabolites encapsulation.
