Dr. Abdul L. Khan - Microbiome: A vital resource for changing climate and food securities
This presentation focuses on how microbiome engineering can be utilized to overcome the adverse impacts of climate change. We used cutting-edge molecular, genome sequencing, and bioinformatics approaches to dig deeper into understanding the functional role of microbiomes. We attribute core-microbiome species’ diversity as a significant response function in resistance against climate-induced changes.
