Dehradun, October 25
The Forest Research Institute, Dehradun, has come up with a molecular physiology and biochemistry laboratory.

According to a release issued by the FRI Director, PP Bhojvaid, the laboratory will be of immense importance for FRI scientists to work on molecular aspects of physiology and biochemistry of forest tree species.
It will help in analysing the genetic diversity of individual forest tree species required for future improvement. This laboratory will also be devoted for enzymatic work to understand the mechanisms underlying various metabolic processes as influenced by climate change.
FRI botany division’s head S. Nautiyal, welcoming the setting up of the molecular physiology and biochemistry laboratory, said a need of state of the art was being felt at the FRI for quite some time.
Meena Bakshi, a scientist from the FRI, who is the in-charge for this laboratory, had been specially trained in molecular physiology and biochemistry from Germany.
