I completed my Ph.D. on the topic “Isolation, purification and characterization of acidic lipase from Aspergillus niger NCIM 1207” under the guidance of Dr. D. V. Gokhale Head, NCIM, National Chemical Laboratory, Pune. Lipase from A. niger NCIM 1207 is active at low pH and such lipase has not been reported so far in the literature. This works resulted in one US patent 6,534,303 (“Process for preparation of acidic lipase.”) and five publications in reputed international journals. Lipase was characterized for its physical and biochemical properties. Active site of lipase also was studied by chemical modification.
