Background- Thermophilic organisms are composed of both bacterial and archaeal species. The enzymes isolated from these species and from other extreme habitats are more robust to temperature, organic solvents and proteolysis. They often have unique substrate specificities and originate from novel metabolic pathways. Thermophiles as well as their stable enzymes (‘thermozymes’) are receiving increased attention for biotechnological applications.
The proposed project will establish thermophilic in
Despite the intensive use of agrochemicals, plant pathogens are responsible for huge yield losses worldwide. Understanding the interaction between plant and pathogens is crucial to ensure long lasting and environmentally friendly system of plant protection. Therefore research of the most important human food crops in combination with their pathogens is one of the highest priorities for sustainable agriculture.
The aim of the proposed research project is to bring new perspective into understanding
