Research & Training

Research


Innovation through rigorous Research & Development has been a passion with which AG Bioteck has taken shape and the same spirit continues to this day, which is shared by the team of scientists at AG Bioteck.

The scientists in the R & D have made breakthroughs in selection of Plus trees with desirable characters and evolved the In-House Tissue culture Technology to produce genetically superior clones in economically important timber trees viz., Tectona grandis, Gmelina arborea, Albizia odorotisiana, Swetania mahagony, Anthocephalus cadamba, Paulownia and oil-yielding bio-fuel plants, viz., Azardirachata indica, Simarouba glouca, Jatropha curcas, etc. The other achievements include:

• Developing the in vitro technology in maintaining the male sterility (MS) lines in the Chilli and Tagetes Hybrid parent lines.,

• Developing the Tissue culture production technology for important Medicinal and Spices crops.

• Developing in-House software for to maintain all the production parameters and clonal identity in tissue culture process.

• Developing the field production technology for tissue culture plants mainly for Banana and Teak for higher productivity.

Training


In an effort to keep its human resources abreast with latest developments in biotechnology, AG Bioteck has developed regular training modules for its scientists apart from participating in research programs with various Universities as part of the Academia-Industry interaction program.

The laboratory gives regular training to NGOs, farmers' organizations and officers in financial Institutes and government departments involving itself in popularizing the biotech inputs. AG Bioteck Laboratory is recognized by many Universities for carrying research for the projects of students at post graduate and PhD levels in the field of Plant Biotechnology.
