Research Related Activity
Faculties are actively involved in research activities. Two projects financially assisted by UGC are completed. Research is mainly focused on environmental pollution related problems and applications of biomolecules originated from microorganisms.
The Major project entitled “Studies on textile dye decolouration by Actinomycetes” was sanctioned to Dr. A. M. Deshmukh by UGC (Rs. 9.21 lakhs) and completed in year 2009-12.The Minor project entitled “Studies on textile dye decolouration by Streptomyces species” was sanctioned to Dr. R. M. Khobragade by UGC (Rs.1.65 lakhs) and completed in year 2010-12.
University projects were sanctioned and completed successfully by Dr. R. M. Khobragade and Dr. P. P. Dixit (Rs. 0.30 lakhs) Agricultural Technology Management Agency (ATMA), D.R.D.A., Z.P., Osmanabad has provided grants of Rs. 1,50,000/- for a project entitled “Effect of Biofertillizers on crop yields” to promote organic farming.

Abstract - The enzyme L-asparaginase has been proved to be efficient in treatment of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and Lymphosarcomas. The present paper discusses the studies carried out for the production of this enzyme from bacillus species. By study obtained optimization of medium, solid state fermentation by using cotton cake and wheat bran and submerged fermentation using distillery waste. M2 modified medium has optimal L-asparaginase production. The enzyme activity (4.58EU/mL) markedly increases in M2 modified medium (62.33EU/mL), solid state fermentation has shows desired enzyme production in cotton cake (68.00EU/mL), and wheat bran(22.91EU/mL).in distillery waste carried submerged fermentation for L-asparaginase production.
