Durgesh Kumar Tripathi

Dr Tripathi has studied the effect of silica on physiological and biochemical responses such as photosynthesis, biotic and a-biotic stress, nutrient uptake as well as yield and quality of crop plants to stress factors such as metal, and the synchronized detoxification of harmful reactive oxygen species by their antioxidant defense mechanisms. He has also studied the interactions of physical Instruments like LIBS, EPMA and Florescence spectroscopy on stressed and non-stressed plants and get the information. His most recent research is moving towards gene level/protein level regulation of stress relieving mechanisms in organisms with and without the presence of silicon.
