Objectives

Long term:

  •    Bioprospecting of renewable forest resources
  • Short term:

    •   Bioassay directed isolation and characterization of bioactive compounds of medicinal, therapeutic, phytoceutical, nutraceutical and biopesticidal importance and value addition.
    •    Development and commercialization of biopesticides; bioboosters and biocolourant through industrial collaboration.

    Our research areas focus on Bioprospecting of renewable forest resources which includes

    •     Biopesticides : Non edible Tree borne oil based, microbial and botanical based..
    •     Bioboosters : Organic based biobooster
    •     Biocolourant : Natural colourant
    •     Biofuel: Bioethanol & Biobutanol
    •     Biodegradable containers : Chitosan based materials
    •     Biocure : Using medicinal plants
    •    Tribal development programmes and transfer of technology
    •     Extension and education
