Clonal propagation strategy developed for Eucalyptus and Casuarina.
Tissue culture techniques including axillary bud proliferation, organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis were developed for bamboos, teak, casuarina and eucalyptus.
DNA marker systems like RAPD, ISSR, FISSR, AFLP and SSR were developed for Casuarinas and Eucalyptus to assess genetic diversity and genetic fidelity.
Devised DNA fingerprint database management system for Clonal germplasm collections.
Purified antifungal proteins from Plumbago capensis, Andrographis paniculata and Acorus calamus for gene isolation and genetic transformation.
Field demonstration trial of tissue culture raised plants of bamboos was established.
