My research is basically focused on studying the effect of biochemical composition of plant residue on certain soil biological functions by evaluating the role of extra-cellular enzymes (L-leucine aminopeptidase, Cellulase, CBH-1, Xylanase, Laccase, Peroxidase) . Microbial diversity Management and its exploitation for industrial and commercial application has an important role in sustainable development which worth million dollar industry. There is a wide gap in biotechnology industry to explore enormous potential of microorganisms in heterogeneous natural environment that can be a source of new technologies. Pakistan, at present, is facing severe economic crunch because of continuously growing gap between energy demand and supply. Under the current scenario, therefore, biofuels (bioethanol) is an environmental friendly and cost effective alternative fuel, particularly based on low cost feedstock i.e. lignocellulose which accumulates in most parts of Pakistan. The focused research could serve as potential fuel alternative in Pakistan to meet the energy requirements by developing a suite of strong biologically nano-engineered efficient enzyme systems. The lignocellulose feedstock and bioethanol produced from it will help the country to reduce its energy import bills and ensure sustainable energy supply.
