WGS surveillance of AMR pathogens from retail markets of Assam was carried out. The occurrence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus ST672-MRSA-IV/t1309 (an emerging disease clone) and a high prevalence of ST88-MRSA-IV/t2526 (first reports from India) was reported
Baseline assessment of AMR in the aquaculture farms revealed various genotypes of three major human pathogens namely, the extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli & Klebsiella pneumoniae, and the methicillin-resistant Staphylococci.
Comprehensive genotyping of the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates revealed high prevalence of ST772-t345-SCCmec V, a community-associated epidemic clone.
Twenty-seven β-haemolytic V. parahaemolyticus were isolated from 7 out of 40 farms studied. Among the 27 isolates, 15 possessed the tdh gene and 4 had trh. ERIC PCR and PFGE illustrated the presence of pathogenic isolates that shared genetic similarity with clinical strains.
Quorum quenching ability of Bacillus spp. strains to reduce the expression of some virulence factors of a shrimp pathogen, Vibrio harveyi revealed the potential application of AHL-degrading Bacillus spp. as an alternative to antibiotics in shrimp hatcheries to control luminescent vibriosis
Shrimp shell waste bioprocessed with protease producing Bacillus strains were able to produce chitin ranging from 2
MLST sequence types, ST 1510 and ST 3765 were identified from Salmonella Paratyphi B isolated from seafood markets of Cochin region
Carbon dot synthesized from fish protein hydrolysate showed antibacterial activity against E. coli, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus and Methicillin resistant S. aureus
Fluorescent signals of the bacterial cells were found to be high during bacterial attachment to carbon dot which can be used for fluorescent imaging of bacteria
Silver nanoparticles synthesized using green technology with limon peel extract (Citrus limon) ntibacterial properties against V. mimicus at very low concentrations
Metal nanoparticles viz. Zinc oxide nanoparticles, Cupric oxide nanoparticles, and Magnesium Oxide nanoparticles were prepared by the sol-gel method it antibacterial activity was evaluated.
Food waste including fishery waste were converted to compost in 80 days using Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus licheniformis
Phage based biocontrol for E. coli and Vibrio harveyi were developed and whole genome sequencing of coliphage and vibrio phage were completed
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) burden in Escherichia coli of Vembanad Lake, Kerala, revealed multidrug resistance in 30% of the strains, and extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producers in 32% of the strains
