Research Activities


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
