Both conventional and advanced cutting-edge research facilities are available to drive the research hypothesis laid by BuG ReMeDEE consortium.

  • Genome Editing – Latest state of the art genome editing tools and techniques are available to manipulate the genetic make-up of model microorganisms. Facilities for both random mutagenesis and targeted mutagenesis are available to perform specific tasks viz. Signature Tag Mutagenesis, Site-directed mutagenesis etc. Likewise, conventional facilities for homologous and heterologous expression of genes, conjugate development etc. are also available. Efforts are underway to develop the modern science technique viz. CRISPR to match with the research scenario in the field of genome editing.
  • Protein Engineering – Facilities for both wet-lab and computational approach are available to engineer the protein of interest. Subscription is available for in-silico tools such as Material Studio, Discovery Studio, Chimera for Quantum Mechanics, Molecular Dynamics and protein modeling studies. Basic research facilities pertaining to the production, purification, concentration and characterization of protein are also available.
  • Electrochemistry – Electrochemical workstation and infrastructure for microbial electrochemical investigations including biofilm formation, microbial electrocatalysis/electrosynthesis, and electroanalytical investigations.
  • Analytics – To analyze the reaction intermediates and metabolites facilities such as Liquid Chromatography-Mass spectrometry (LC-MS), HPLC, Gas chromatography are available. Analytical facility such as Fluorescent Microscopy is available to characterize the microbe under different reaction conditions. Further to visualize the microbial pili, microbial biofilm and derivatives such as biopolymers, Scanning Electron Microscopy and TEM are available on campus.
