About - I am an Assistant Professor in Centre for Marine Science and Technology, Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, Tirunelveli. I am having 6 years commercial experience in Microalgal culture.Our research team is working to search high oil yielding strains of microalgae.Recently we reported that the symbiotic bacteria living along with micro algae can alter the fatty acid profile.Presently our work is to produce new clones of micro algae that will be amiable to culture and bearing more oil. I like to have colaborative research with any research team which is engaging in cloning of oil catalizing enzyme genes.
