Plant Growth Room

The potential that plants possess are numerous and include the fact that they are a food source, they have antibacterial activity, they can be modified and used in bioremediation, from the cellulose found in them plastic can be made etc. With this in mind the GBE Department established the plant growth room where plant species are grown on artificial media and their secondary metabolite production is enhanced. This laboratory is used by many research groups including Microbial Genetics Research Group and Archgene Research Group, and also in the courses biomaterials and plant physiology.
