RESEARCH ACTIVITIES IN M.C. COLLEGE

Teachers of M.C. College have been actively involved in Research activities. Till now a number of Minor Research Projects have been completed by the faculty members of this College. Following are some of the ongoing research projects-

UGC SPONSORED MAJOR RESEARCH PROJECT

“THE ASSESSMENT OF GENETIC DNA DAMAGE IN THE AGRICULTURAL WORKERS EXPOSED TO COMBINED ACTION OF PESTICIDES IN SELECTED DISTRICTS OF ASSAM”


OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
  • TO INVESTIGATE THE COMBINED ACTION OF PESTICIDES ON THE HEALTH OF THE AGRICULTURAL WORKERS OF CERATAIN DISTRICS OF ASSAM.
  • TO EVALUATE THE EXTENT OF DNA DAMAGE AND REPAIR IN PERIPHERAL BLOOD LYMPHOCYTES OF AGRICULTURAL WORKERS BY COMET AS SAY(SCGE)


The use of pesticides in agriculture has been increasing steadily. A large no of these chemicals are release to the environment daily and many of them have affect non-target species, they may represent a potential hazard to human health. In the rural area of Assam, poor people are depend upon the Agriculture-rice & vegetable. They used large amounts of pesticide to protect crops. They also used Carcinogenic pesticide along with other pesticide viz. Phosphomidon, Malathion, Aldrine, Methyl parathion etc. These chemicals released in to the Environment Daily-They represent potential hazard to Human Health. Occupational exposure of pesticide.


Study area of Barpeta District – Mandia, Baghbor , Jania,Nagaon, Doulshal , Howly, Kalgachia, Sorbhog, Pathsala, Sarupeta,Kayakuchi, Sarthebari

Study area of Kamrup district – Mirza,Borihat, Boko, Somoria, Jambori, Hajo, Sualkuchi, Ramdia, Baihata Chariali , Kamalpur, Bezera.


This project till now organized many awareness programmes in various places regarding the carcinogenic effects of pesticides. The study has been very widely covered by Print and Electronic media of Assam.
