Research and Development

Rise n’ Shine research focuses on providing integrated solutions in the required area to accelerate the progress of biotechnology in the field of agriculture. It has a fully fledged international standard Research and Development department with 6,600 sq. ft. of Laboratory space. Established with the aim to carry out need based research that improves the quality of plants and maintains the genetic purity of commercial crops. The genetic fidelity testing facilities guarantees the purity of the strains.

Full-fledged International standard Research & Development Department with 350-sq.ft laboratory space was established in the year 2009, followed by a hi-tech laboratory with the area of 6,600 sq.ft., inaugurated in 2013, operating within the premises. Our R&D Division is recognized by the government’s highly esteemed organization “Department of Scientific and Industrial Research” in the year Dec, 2013.

Policy :

Applied and collaborative research to achieve techno-commercial and eco-friendly solutions.

Molecular Biology Laboratory :

Established with an aim to carry out need based research that improves the quality of plant and maintain the genetic purity of commercial crops. Research aspects include molecular breeding in floriculture, screening for positive mutants for improving productive traits in Banana, environmental pollution control andfocusing on generation of pure seed material in orchids. R&D complex is well equipped with modern hi tech and sophisticated equipments.

Plant Pathology Laboratory :

This facility provides support for pathogen free elite plant material for commercial production. This facility includes high-end equipments.

Plant Tissue Culture Laboratory:

Plant tissue culture lab supports active work stations for research executives and students to make productive contributions in the plant biotech segment. Our state of the art Research & Development have innovative technology and a stringent quality control regime which ensures best services. The genetic fidelity testing facilities guarantees the purity of the strain.

Project 1
Production, optimization and characterization of agarase enzyme isolated from non marine sources.
Project 2
Induction of mutation  and screening for positive mutant of Grand naine banana cultivar  at genome level, in micro propagated plants using PCR where the DNA is amplified using Thermal Cycler and auto-generated molecular data using Syngene gel documentation system.
Project 3
Assessment of plant growth-promoting Rhizobacteria from Gerbera rhizosphere as plant growth enhancers and biocontrol agents.

Other Activities

  • In vitro propagation of endangered plant species Nepenthes (a rare insectivorous plant)
  • In-vitro propagation of Ginger, Pomegranate, sugarcane and coffee.

High tech projects are also underway in the field of customized LED lighting for ecofriendly approach and energy conservation.
