Dear friends,
Greetings!
I am PhD research scholar and antimalarial compound search from endophytic streptomyces species of Medicinal plants origin is my main motto.
i really belive these endophytes for novel source against malarial parasite, it indirectly helps to encourage the forestation process, in which it can reduce the global warming.
