Current Research

Topic: Study of Micro Algae-Synthesized Biodegradable Polyesters (Polyhydroxyalkanoates)

Description:

          Polyhydroxyalkanoates are a family of linear biodegradable thermoplastic polyesters that are usually synthesized in nature by bacterial fermentation. In the current study the Acetyl –CoA pathway that is responsible for production of PHAs, is proposed to be explored in selected microalgal species for inducing production of Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB). The extracted microalgal PHB will be studied for it physicochemical characteristics and applied in the biomedical-textiles field.
