Microbial Molecular BiologyMicrobial molecular biology research department focus on micro-organisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses) molecular research, and their relationship and potential impact on beneficial and pathogenic organisms to plants and insects.

The department activities include isolation and characterization of genes responsible for the formation of endotoxin and exotoxin secreted insect proteins and also vegetative expressed genes that produce proteins toxic to insects (Vips).

Research tasks also include studying of the genes responsible for nitrogen fixation and microbial salinity genes, In addition to the use of baculovirus as biocontrol agent. Isolation and identification of bacterial isolates of bacteria Bacillus thuringiensis and fungal isolates of fungi and Trichoderma for use in the same purpose.

There are also studies on resistance to fungal and bacterial pathogens by Isolation and identification of environmental stress genes from microorganisms and its impact on economic crops on the production of disease-resistant plants. Viral controlling insect agents research are taking place in addition to isolate certain genes that affect the life cycle of whitefly to reduce their harmful effects on the plant.

There is also interest in the studying the interactions between plant and vector such as virus vectors for plant diseases, in an attempt to clarify the mechanisms of transmission of the virus. For insect’s control, there are molecular studies for the main physiological processes in the insects body such as digestion, reproduction and use these studies to find new targets for insect control using genetic engineering techniques.

Also, among the activities of the department is the production of mono and polyclonal antibodies for plant viruses and development of diagnostic kits for Egyptian plants viruses.
