1. Brief Description:

The research group of Plant and Environmental Biotechnology focuses on the study of interactions between plants - microorganisms and the environment and the biotechnological applications of plants and microorganisms in (a) sustainable production processes, (b) production of bioactive molecules and (c) environmental protection. The Group is hosted in a 65 m2 laboratory, while it has also access to two plant growth rooms and a pesticide - soil handling area.

2. Research Interests:

  • Plant Biotechnology: Biosynthetic pathways of secondary metabolites including triterpenes and glucosinolates, manipulation of their biosynthesis in legume model-plants, effect of nutrient availability on gene expression and metabolite profiles
  • Plant Microbe – Interactions: Ecology and function of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, Plant – Fungal (Pathogenic and antagonistic soil-borne fungi) and Plant-Bacterial (Rhizospheric bacteria/ Legume-rhizobia symbiosis) interactions, tri-partite interactions.
  • Environmental Microbiology: Enhanced microbial degradation of pesticides, isolation of pesticide-degrading microbes and their hydrolytic genes/enzymes, functional analysis of pesticide-degrading microbes, bioremediation of agro-industrial effluents
  • Microbial Ecology: Effects of crop protection and agronomic practices on the structure and function of the microbial community
  • Environmental Pollution: Basic processes controlling the environmental fate of pesticides
  • Biological functions of plant metabolites: emphasis is given on the molecular mechanisms of anticancer effects
  • Molecular Diagnosis: in a variety of tissues, including human, animal, and plant organisms and environmental samples.
