BIOGRAPHY

Indira P. Sarethy is Professor in the Department of Biotechnology, and Associate Dean – Online Teaching. She has been in teaching and research for twenty years, working at Lady Doak College, Madurai, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), New Delhi and Amity Institute of Biotechnology, Noida before taking up the present assignment at Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Noida. She has done her post-graduation and PhD from Madurai Kamaraj University (Madurai) on stress-related aspects using in vitro propagation systems of plants.

She is CSIR-UGC-NET and GATE qualified and has been the recipient of CSIR Junior and Senior Research Fellowships for doctoral studies. She has organized conferences and workshops (DBT-sponsored one-day National conference on ‘Biodiversity and Agribiotechnology’- April 25, 2009, five days Workshop on ‘Plant Bio-products And Industrial Scale-Up’ - July 5-9, 2010 in collaboration with Sanat Products Ltd., One-day Workshop on “Hands-on to Computational Biology for Genomic and Metagenomic Analysis- 13 Nov, 2018, International Conference On Advances In Biosciences And Biotechnology -ICABB-2019- 31 Jan – 2 Feb 2019) and was co-organizer of International Conferences on ‘Bioproducts from Natural Sources’ (Feb.3, 2011), and ‘Bioproducts and the OMICS Revolution’ (March 16-17, 2013), in collaboration with Scientity Inc., U.K. She also has a funded project from Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHTS

Her research interest is in bioresources, specifically natural products (for therapeutic and industrial applications) from microbial and plant biodiversity. Based on a culture-dependent approach, microorganisms from niche habitats (desert, forest, limestone rock, monuments and endophytic) are identified and characterized for bioactive compounds. Metagenomics-based approaches focus on eliciting production of natural products from the environmental DNA. The group leverages capabilities to taxonomically characterize and study microbial diversity (cultivable and metagenomic) for products of use in environment waste management and of industrial importance - anti-microbial metabolites, biosurfactants, anti-oxidants and enzymes. In vitro propagation of endangered medicinal plants and the effect of culture conditions on bioactive natural compounds have also been studied. The key outcomes have been:

  • Understudied habitats have been used for bioprospection of microbial diversity for in vitroelucidation of natural products.
  • Novel antimicrobial and antioxidant compounds have been characterized
  • New actinobacterial taxa from the Thar Desert have been taxonomically characterized
  • Metabolites such as biosurfactants, enzymes and siderophores have been identified for environmental bioremediation purposes
  • Metagenomic studies for environmental waste management and for elucidatingthe microbial profile of inland water bodies is in progress
