Secondary Metabolite Production using Adventitious Root Culture Workshop at ABRII, 27-28th February 2018

Professor Dr. Niranjana Murthy Hosakatte from Botany Department of the Karnatak University, has lectured at the workshop entitled ‘Secondary Metabolite Production using Adventitious Root Culture’ held on 27-28th February 2018 at the Secondary Metabolites Department of the Agricultural Biotechnology Institute of Iran (ABRII). The topics included:

  • Induction and cultivation of adventitious roots of medicinal plants for the production of valuable secondary metabolites
  • Bioreactor types, economics of in vitro secondary metabolite production
  • Bio-safety of the ingredients derived from cell and organ culture, production of biomass and secondary metabolites through adventitious root cultures of ginseng
  • Challenges of production of secondary metabolites in in-vitro condition
  • Future perspectives of production of secondary metabolites in in-vitro condition, etc. 

 

He further visited ABRII in Seed and Plant Improvement Institute Campus-Karaj and negotiated the projects and activities ongoing in different sections including departments of ‘Tissue and Cell Culture’, ‘Microbial Biotechnology’, ‘Genetic Engineering and Biosafety’, ‘Systems Biology’, ‘Nanotechnology’ and ‘Plant Molecular Physiology’. His visit was accompanied by Dr. Morteza Khan Ahmadi, the head of the Secondary Metabolites Biotechnology Institute and Dr Morteza Ebrahimi, a faculty member of the ABRII.

Prof. Hosakatte was also informed with activities of genetic engineering and transgenic plants while visiting the transgenic greenhouse. It is worth mentioning that Professor Dr. Niranjana Murthy Hosakatte, is one of the leading researchers in the field of plant biotechnology and has published several articles related to agricultural biotechnology.
