Ongoing HEQEP Research – Mahbubur Rahman

Title of the project: Antimicrobial Compound from Freshwater and Marine Actinomycetes to Control Fish and Shrimp Bacterial Pathogen

Name of the principle investigator (PI): DR. MD. MAHBUBUR RAHMAN

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT

  1. To isolate actinomycetes from aquatic and marine /environment sediment inhibiting fish and shrimp bacterial pathogen.
  2. To screen antagonistic effect of the actinomycetes against fish and shrimp bacterial pathogen.
  3. To identify active fraction of the enzymes of some potential actinomycetes by Thin Layer Chromatography.
  4. To develop a collection of bio-functional antagonistic actinomycetes for future research.
