Descriptif
Thar Desert is considered as a unique ecosystem due to harsh environmental conditions for living beings. On the other hand bacteria have excellent ability of mutations and adaptations, hence they develop biomolecules with specific features. Some of these compound especially enzymes and proteins have proved to be beneficial for industries, being tolerable to harsh manual and mechanical processing. The main task of this research is a detailed study on thermophilic bacterial diversity found in sand dunes of Bikaner region. So that if any commercially valuable strain will be isolated with any thermophilic enzyme production ability or with strong antibiotic potential/sensitivity, then it can be utilized by industries for cost effective production of valuable compounds in bioreactors.

It will include following objectives : 1. Isolation of thermophilic bacterial diversity from sand dunes of Bikaner region. 2. Establishment of pure cultures of strains showing significant thermophilic nature and identification of bacterial species on the basis of cell morphology, cultural characteristics and biochemical reaction according to Bergey’s manual. 3. Isolates obtained from different locality will be characterized at molecular level. 4. The isolated strains will be assessed for their antimicrobial potential if any and for production of industrially important enzymes.
