Research

Our lab focuses on the qualitative and quantitative biochemistry and molecular biophysics of macromolecules. The broad areas of research in the lab include physical biochemistry, bioenergetics, protein structure, membrane biochemistry and chemical manipulations of biopolymers. The research interests include LECTINS - The role of various sugars on the surface glycans in bacterial or fungal pathogenesis of plants and animals is well known, ENDOPHYTES - Endophytes/ endosymbionts from marine micro algae have recently gained attention as potential sources of bioactive secondary metabolites. CHEMICALLY MODIFIED BIOPOLYMERS - Over the years, chemical conjugation of bioactive molecules onto polymer matrices has emerged as a versatile strategy for a wide spectrum of applications including.
