                            Mycology and Applied Microbiology

During the last twenty years, studies have been conducted on molecular characterization, antibacterial, antioxidant activity and nutritive components of twenty five species of wild edible mushrooms from entire Himachal Pradesh. Artificial cultivation technologies on cheap substrates have been developed for four highly medicinal mushrooms (under a major UGC project). Studies have also been conducted on the application of mycorrhizal biotechnology to regenerate high attitudes conifers under a major DST Project. Sixty medicinal plants of Himachal Pradesh have been screened for isolation of VAM and endophytic fungi form them. The work is in progress for molecular characterization of these fungi and preparation of silver and iron nanoparticles form the endophytre fungi isolated form medicinal plants.
