Entomology

1. MOSQUITOCIDAL ACTIVITY OF PLANT EXTRACTS (COLLABORATIVE PROJECT WITH RRL,CSIR)

Of late more emphasis is given on bio perspective of botanicals as effective mosquitocidal agent, which may prove more safe , efficient and cost effective.

Out of 10 plant extracts , Ethyl acetate, & hexane extracts of root & bark of the plant Cinnamon & Diospyras showed encouraging results as a larvicide of mosquitoes.

The above products acted like insect growth regulatory hormone and induced coloure change in the pupa (Green ,red & Yellow ) & also inhibited adult emergence.

2. MOSQUITOCIDAL ACTIVITY OF PLANT EXTRACTS (COLLABORATIVE PROJECT WITH RRL,CSIR)
1. Identification of Species
2. Blood meal taken by mosquito
3. Detection of Malaria parasite (Sporozoite) in mosquito

A molecular technique was developed to identify the mosquito species, presence of parasite and its vectorial attributes in field condition. This method will help the policy makers for taking appropriate mosquito control

4. Identification of of mosquito, sporozoites and human blood index by molecular method

<

By this methods mosquito will be carried from field to laboratory

5. Multiplex PCR for seven Anopheles species incriminated in Odisha

An. annularis (Vector), An. pallidus (Non vector), An. philippinensis (Local important), An. culicifacies (Vector), An. fluviatilis (Vector), An. varuna (Local important), An. aconitus (Non vector).

This method is useful in mapping of vectors with their sporozoite and human blood preference in large scale.

6. PROTECTIVE POTENTIALITY OF A NOVEL FILARIAL ANTIGEN IN LYMPHATIC FILARIASIS
