Significant Achievements(max 5 bullet points)

-First attempt (ZSI) based on environmentalmetagenomicsstudies of aquatic ecosystems such as Ramsar sites, Rivers, Polluted Drains, STPs/ETPs, drinking water, groundwater and Cancer affected villages.

- First attempt (ZSI) based on gut microbiota studies to decipher the microbial communities present in economically important species such as thrips and spiders.

- Water Quality (Physico-chemical data) of approximately 200 different sites (Including East Kolkata Wetland, Ganga River, STPs, Najafgarh Drain, drinking water and Groundwater)has been generated (Water Quality Indexing) and compiled keeping in view the standards prescribed by CPCB, New Delhi, World Health Organization (WHO), and United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA).

-  Metal Speciation studies from approximately 60 drinking water samples and 27 ground water samples was carried out and results were compiled in line with drinking water standard of WHO followed by Health Risk Indexing (HRI).
