Dear Dr. Emmanuel Kumatia,
I am Sara Di Lonardo, an environmental biologist, permanent researcher at the Research Institute on Terrestrial Ecosystems of the Italian National Research Council (IRET-CNR). I currently work on various topics even related to plant stress and characterization.
I got curious about your activities. In my lab we have the possibility to characterize plant material with FTIR technique (DRIFT and PAS) and in some way predict some chemicals in plant material.
Do you think this could be of interest for a collaboration? What kind of plants have you characterized?

Thank you for your attention.
Best wishes,

Sara

Hope all are doing well and active to serve the world through science.I am very happy with the activities and update information sharing through the INPST. As I am basically from India and my native place is just closely associated with natural resources which has high potential of medicinal plants and wild mushrooms.Even I have been also working on exploring the hidden potential of such resources. But in the mean time I need active collaboration for further work and complete exploitation of the resources with finding of new natural lead molecules for drug and other value-added product as well with… Read more »

Dear Colleagues, it’s my pleasure to share with You our Plants Journal Special Issue: “Weaponizing Plants: Biocontrol and Biosecurity in Plant Protection”. Climate change, plants and human health are closely linked, since the environment, plant health and food safety are parts of the same system. In fact, crop yield and plant products quality are, directly or indirectly, affected by climate alterations. Adverse climatic conditions often promote the occurrence of different abiotic stresses, which can have the effect of reducing or enhancing susceptibility to biotic stresses (pests or pathogens). The agricultural productivity challenges, posed by the climate change, can be overcome… Read more »

Greeting to every one. Hope all are doing very well .I am very happy with the activities and update information sharing through the INPST regularly.  I am a young Doctor (PhD) from Cameroon. The focal aim of my Ph.D. work was based on anticancer activity of a plant species (Imperata cylindrica) and its phytocomponents on various cancer cell lines. we examined phytochemical constituents of Imperata cylindrica (medicinal plant) extract using LC-MS technique. The plant extract was purified for isolation of its active ingredients. The crude extract and the isolated compounds were assessed in vitro for their antiproliferative activity, their capacity… Read more »
