Project summary: High density linkage maps and QTL maps showing QTL regions controlling amylose and resistant starch variation shall be developed in wheat. More than 10 high amylose (amylose content >50% in wheat grain) mutant lines have been developed in the genetic background of a good chapatti variety, ‘C 306’ through EMS mutagenesis. Few high amylose mutant lines (>65% amylose content) have been crossed with the present high yield variety, ‘WH 1105’ and a F2 population comprising are growing and F3 seeds will be harvested in April 2018.

4. Project Title: "Metabolic engineering of triacylglycerol (TAG) biosynthetic pathway to enhance the nutritional quality of forage sorghum and rumen protection of dietary lipids” 

Principle Investigator: Dr. Rupam Kumar Bhunia, Inspire Faculty 

Positions: Junior Research Fellow (01) 

Duration: Till December 16, 2022 Project summary: The natural occurrence of cysteine (Cys) in the amphipathic arms of oleosin (oil seed structural protein) appears to be either non-existent or extremely rare. Hence, we aim to generate novel Cys-oleosin proteins with disulfide bonds by engineering one and six Cys residues into each amphipathic arm. Finally, by co-expressing diacylglycerol Oacyltransferase (DGAT) and Cys-oleosin variant, we propose to substantially enhance the energy content of forage sorghum through the accumulation of TAG in stable organelles. Furthermore, the co-expression will eventually lead to increased protection of TAG products against rumen microbial lipases. The successful application of this proposed research in forage sorghum for TAG accumulation and protection in vegetative tissues will allow livestock animal specifically dairy cattles to get energy supplement directly from foragealong with protected lipid products from ruminal lipase attacks. Research work responsibility:- The project involves biochemical characterization of the neutral lipid metabolic pathway genes, generation of transgenic to enhance the lipid accumulation in vegetative tissues, Molecular analysis of transgenic plants and quantification of different lipids (membrane lipids and triglycerides) by GC and GC-MS.

5. Project Title: "Development of Glycoconjugates based site directed fluorescent ssensor for the detection of bacteria” 

Principle Investigator: Dr. Nitin Kumar Singhal, Scientist D Positions: Junior Research Fellow (01) 

Duration: Till 25th November, 2022. 

Project summary: In this project, we will develop gold nanoparticles fluorescent silica core-shell (GFCS) as scaffolds to anchor multivalent glycans and establish a model system for the quantitative study of the multivalent binding between glycan functionalized GFCS and bacteria. GFCS will readily synthesized by mixing gold nanoparticles, porphyrin containing silicon alkoxide, TEOS and APTES in ammonia water. Enclosure of TCPP in a silica matrix exhibit longitudinal surface plasmon resonance (LSPR), which is forsaken via radiative and nonradiative channels. The nonradiative removal of the GFCS endow them to absorb light effectively and release heat into the vicinity. Taken together, GFCS endow microscopic and spectroscopic detection and quantification of the binding event, and they will be used for photothermal killing of bacteria. We will first confirm the multivalency effect of glycan modified GFCS with lectin binding assay. Glycan microarray will be also developed after all confirming the role in GFCS in bacterial detection and ablation. This combination of glycans and nanoparticles will be a promising platform for fast and efficient detection and ablation of bacteria. Research work responsibility: This project involves nanoparticle synthesis, fabrication and bacterial work. Candidate should have some basic knowledge in one of the area.
