AIC 02004 CN:   Molecular characterization and assessment of the efficacy of low molecular weight peptides isolated from mulberry leaf against flacherie disease of silkworm

(Collaboration with UNB, Siliguri).)

Dr. Pooja Makwana, Sci-C

May, 2019 - May, 2022

1. Purification and characterization of identified potential peptide(s) using HPLC – MS based approach

2. Assessment of protection potential of identified low molecular weight peptide fractions against pathogen(s) of Flacherie

3. Validation of disease suppression ability and silkworm quality parameters by the synthesized specific peptide.
