  • Evaluation of immunomudulatory activity of medicinal plants - The study involves the possible use of essential oil of medicinal plant in diseases where the immune system is affected like cancer, AIDS and autoimmune diseases.
  • Characterization of stress tolerant rice genotypes - Flooding is a natural stress affecting the rice production in coastal area of India especially Odisha. The present work involves genetic analysis and morphological characterization of promising lowland rice genotypes for submergence tolerance. The study is aimed at reducing the incidence of grain loss in coastal area of India especially Odisha, prone to submergence.
