Production of Plant Derived Natural Compounds through Hairy Root Culture


This book provides the latest information about hairy root culture and its several applications, with special emphasis on potential of hairy roots for the production of bioactive compounds. Due to high growth rate as well as biochemical and genetic stability, it is possible to study the metabolic pathways related to production of bioactive compounds using hairy root culture. Chapters discuss the feasibility of hairy roots for plant derived natural compounds. Advantages and difficulties of hairy roots for up-scaling studies in bioreactors are included as well as successful examples of hairy root culture of plant species producing bioactive compounds used in food, flavors and pharmaceutical industry. This book is a valuable resource for researchers and students working on the area of plant natural products, phytochemistry, plant tissue culture, medicines, and drug discovery.

Dr. Malik has obtained her doctoral degree in Plant Biotechnology from CSIR- Institute of Himalayan Bioresource Technology, Palampur, India in July 2009. She did Masters (Gold Medalist) in Honours Botany with specialization in Plant Biotechnology and Tissue Culture in 2001 from Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, India. Her basic area of research is plant secondary metabolites and genetic manipulation and she did work on several medicinal plants. After her post-doctoral studies at Brazil, Czech Republic and United Kingdom, Dr. Malik has joined as a Professor in Biology at Biological and Health Sciences Center, Federal University of Maranhão, Sao Luis since February 2014. At present she is an active member of Post-graduate research program at UFMA and actively involved in research, teaching and supervising research students at UG/PG levels. She has been awarded as FAPEMA Junior Researcher grant in August 2015. To date, Dr. Malik has published more than 20 research articles in reputed journals, 6 book chapters and several abstracts in National and International conferences/symposia.
