Chapter
The current decade is an exciting era during which high throughput “meta omics” approaches resolve the “microbial dark matter” in the ecosystem. Meta-proteomics is a significant solution in delivering the predominant impetus units of the microbiome that ensures the mapping of morphological-genetic linkages from the environment. The current review p...
Article
The marine ecosystem contains a solution for food, shelter, pharmaceutical problems and has a key role in the economy of the country as tourism. The Gulf of Kachchh, known for its high tides and the coral reefs are less explored for its antibiotic activity due to the coral bleaching and diseases. The bacterial strains in the coral Porites lutea are...
Article
Development of science has taken over our lives and made it mandatory to live with science. Synthetic technology takes more than it has given for our welfare. In the process of meeting the demand of the consumers, industries supported synthetic products to meet the same. One such sector that employs synthetic azo dyes for food coloring is the food...
Article
Coral reefs are constantly subjected to multiple stresses like diseases and fish predation, which can profoundly influence the coral microbiome. This study investigated the differences in bacterial community structure of healthy, white syndrome affected and blenny nipped coral colonies of Porites lutea, collected from the coral reefs of Gulf of Kac...
Chapter
The original version of this chapter was inadvertently published without updating Figs. 1 (Pg-507) and 2 (Pg-509) as per the author’s request. Although they are correctly present on the online version. This has now been updated.
Article
Nanotechnology for the past decade has made tremendous improvement and diverse applications in various sector. Among the nanomaterials synthesized, carbon allotropes are advantageous due to its easy functionalization, conductivity, surface area and electrical activity. Hence, they are termed as “Wonder materials”. Allotropes such as carbon nanotube...

Chlorophenols are used in many industries for their importance in preservation and herbicide preparation even though they possess high-risk factors. The prolonged usage of these compounds makes it very complicated to remove them from water and soil by conventional treatment methods. Biosurfactant are the promising structures with the ability to rem...
Article
Cellulose is the main polysaccharide present abundantly in the earth, an important substrate for the cellulase enzyme. Cellulases have attracted considerable attention due to its diverse application in different textile, detergent, leather, food, feed and paper industries. Among the cellulase producing microbes, bacteria have a faster growth compar...
Chapter
Plastics are inert materials that are resistant to environmental and mechanical stress. The immense use of plastics has increased over the past decade. In addition, utilization of non-degradable polymers showed the impact on health of the terrestrial and aquatic lives. In general physical or chemical recycling process, which reduces the accumulatio...
Article
The dying of textiles, foods, tablets, and cosmetics has gained importance as they are attractive and colorful. These dyes vary in their physical and chemical properties. These dyes are resistant to stresses and are carcinogenic and mutagenic. The release of reactive azo dyes into the environment poses a great threat to living organisms. The treatm...
Article
Azo dyes, known for its toxicity and mutagenicity, are used by textile industries. Bioremediation serves the best alternative treatment process due to its eco-friendly nature and cost-effectiveness. Degradation using individual bacteria promotes azo dye removal, while the degradation is enhanced using the immobilization method. Bio-carrier promotes...
Article
Surface modified lipopeptide biosurfactant (BS) with enhancement of amino acids was synthesized using Bacillus Malacitensis. The aromatic hydrocarbons from contaminated soil were removed using BS soil washing process and bioremediation using activated functionalized carbon-BS matrix (AFC-BS). The Central Composite Design (CCD) showed that the optim...
Article
Azo dyes are highly toxic, which acts as a notable mutagen and carcinogen. This has a significant effect on human health, plants, animals, aquatic and terrestrial environments. Thus, the degradation of the azo dyes is exclusively studied using the conventional methods of which biodegradation is an eco-friendly approach. Hence, the present study is...
Article
Plastic pollution is threatening the world and the life in it. Cost-effective and eco-friendly treatment is the need of the hour. Treating plastics using chemical methods adds up chemicals into the environment with toxic byproducts. The physical method, a slow and expensive process, is not the better alternative. The process should rely on the envi...
Article
The increase in pollution increased the threat level of living organisms in the environment. Municipal Solid Waste is one of the most important wastes which contribute to polluted sites affecting livelihood. They pollute the water stream, marine environment ecology, soil fertility, and agriculture production. This, in turn, reduces the microflora o...
Article
The recent upsurge of antibiotic-resistant infections has posed to be a serious health concern worldwide. In the present paper, the effect of shape & capping agent on the antibacterial activity (on Skin and Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) causing bacteria) of copper iodide (CuI) particles was probed. CuI synthesized without a capping agent was leaf-l...
Chapter
The development of urbanization and increase in population has lead to the production of synthetic compounds. These compounds are toxic if not treated properly. The process of treatment of these pollutants are widely studied and explored using various methods such as physical, chemical, and biological methods. The biological method of treatment was...

The earthworms are important soil invertebrates and play a crucial role in pedogenesis. The application of pesticides and prolonged exposure to pesticides causes mortality of earthworms apart from profoundly affecting the resident gut microbiome. The microbiome plays a significant effect on the metabolic processes associated with earthworms. The pe...

Azo dyes released by the textile industries cause severe damage to the environment and living organisms. The degradation of azo dyes is widely studied using enzymatic methods. Laccase is a copper-containing enzyme that degrades the azo dyes into less toxic compounds. In this work, the crude laccase enzyme produced by the alkaliphile Pseudomonas men...
Article
Heavy metal pollution has become a serious global threat in recent times which are mostly caused by anthropogenic activities. Bioremediation is cost-effective and eco-friendly technique. In the present study, bioremediation of the co-metal was performed by isolating chromium (Cr) and arsenic (As) resistant bacterial strains and its optimisation of...
Article
Plastic pollution in the current scenario requires a sustainable and eco-friendly treatment process. Single-use plastics accumulate more than recyclable plastic wastes. Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is one among the plastic family with inert characteristics. The traditional method, such as landfilling, develops pollution resistant micro-organisms...
Conference Paper
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is one of the most commonly affecting bacterial infections. UTI is generally self-recovering, but it has a tendency to recur. As uropathogens show enhanced resistance towards variety of antibiotics, there is always a need to explore alternative effective drugs for managing UTI. The present study involves the comparativ...
