Research interest of our group is focused mainly on molecular biology and genetics of rumen bacteria. We are interested in study of several phenomena. Most of our work was done on biology of restriction and modification systems in rumen bacteria. In last few years is our effort concentrated on study of mobile gene elements and natural gene transfer in rumen microbial ecosystem.
You can find some of our latest results under following links:
1.Molecular phylogeny of rumen lactate utilizing bacteria
2.Selenomonas ruminantium plasmid biology
3.Restriction and modification systems of rumen bacteria
4.Occurrence and role of bacteriocins in regulation of rumen bacterial population
