    Endophytic bacteria mediated phytoremediation of organic pollutants
     
    Organic pollutants like polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) among others are known to pose serious environmental problems and potential human health risks being persistent and resistant to natural detoxification or mineralization. Modern life style and increased anthropogenic activities leads to burgeoning accumulation of these compounds in ecosystem. The existing chemical methods to cleanup affected areas are expensive and environmental invasive. Plant and certain associated microbes carry natural detoxification of pollutants by the process named as phyto/rhizoremediation appear to be method of choice for environmental cleanup. This project deals with isolation and identification bacterial genera endowed with the potentials to carry bioremediation. Also, we are focusing on the development of the method/s for detection and quantification of key genes encoding degradative enzymes that can be used to monitor the influence of phytochemicals/secondary plant metabolites/root exudates etc. on the size of population and activity of degraders organism during remediations. We are aiming to increase solubilization of pollutants to increase its bioavailability to either plants degrading microflora through biosurfactant production.

    Enhancing Phytochemical Production by the use of Elicitors 
     
    Due to the high and increasing incidents of diseases, there had been concerted efforts to raise public awareness about the advantages of eating a healthy diet.  Among food products, fruits and vegetables are especially known to have a high potential for preventing diseases due to their broad range of health promoting phytochemicals.  Numerous epidemiological studies have already documented an inverse association between fruit and vegetable consumption and chronic diseases. However, despite of the requirement of a healthy diet, it is observed that the overall fruit and vegetable consumption by the general population is relatively low, and is also well under internationally recommended amounts. The reason for this low fruit and vegetable consumption could be compounded by consumer complacency, low income, and poor educational standards. One way of increasing the consumption of health-promoting phytochemicals in the diet would be by increasing their levels in the fruit and vegetables themselves. Hence, the proposed work aims to enhance the production of these phytochemicals by the use of elicitors. The elicitors are defined as compounds, which can qualitatively and quantitatively alter the content of bioactive secondary metabolites (phytochemicals) and could be biotic or abiotic in nature. Fruits and vegetables enriched with phytochemicals can be used for sale as fresh market products or as raw material for functional foods and supplements.
