Despite the name, water and wastewater research lab did not conduct anymore research on water nor wastewater. The lab’s name could not be changed and researchers taking over the lab continue on with their previous researches. Currently there are a few work ongoing in the lab focusing on crop and medicinal plant, and bacteria. On the plant part, molecular biology, plant transformation, proteomics, antioxidant activity, and protein simulation and docking are in place while work on bacteria focuses mainly on bioinformatics.
