Streptomyces for production of antitumour antibiotics and chitinolytic enzymes
Genome analysis of mycobacteria and the early events associated with the infection of
- strucutral bioinformatics of membrane proteins and protein-nucleic acid
- molecular modelling of nucleic acids
- Pathogenecity and
immunodiagnosis of silk worm pathogen Nosema bombycis and
- use of
