Title: Production and optimization of lignolytic enzymes using paddy straw as substrate and effect of biological pretreatment on biogas production


Manisha Parmar is a PhD research scholar in Department of Microbiology at Punjab Agricultural University, Ludhiana, India. She has received her bachelor degree in Agriculture (Hons.) from CSKHPKV Palampur, India.  She holds a master’s degree in Microbiology that focuses on screening and characterization of ureolytic bacteria for improving the strength of cement concrete. During her master’s she has explored the microbiologically induced calcite precipitation to check the improvement of bacterial concrete over control cement concrete. Her doctoral research investigates the production of Versatile Peroxidase enzyme from Pleurotus ostreatus and the effect of fungal pretreatment on biogas production from paddy straw. She intends to broaden her knowledge of the major benefits, limitations and future prospects in using lignocellulosic biomass for biofuels production.
