Our Work

Sanitation Biotechnology is directed towards developing appropriate bacteriophage and similar biocontrol technologies of disinfection catering to the needs of developing nations where poor sanitation causes huge malnutrition problem.Viruses infecting the bacteria, called bacteriophage (phage), are the most important abundant biological entity in the earth. They have been used for over 90 years as an alternative to antibiotics in the former Soviet Union, east Europe and France. They are currently being tried as a possible therapy against multi-drug-resistant strains of many bacteria.
