  • Projects

    Isolation and Functional Characterization of Anaerobic Reductase Genes from Human Periodontal Bacter(Nil)
    Periodontal pathogens identified to date are anaerobes. The study aims to identify and characterise anaerobic reductase genes like sulfite reductase (dsrA), nitrite reductase (nrfA) and fumarate reductase (frdA) that may prove important for their survival and growth.by (DST-SERB)
