Abstract:
    algal proteins are extracted from algal biomass which are later hydrolysed by enzymatic way and tested fr the presence of anti-microbialy active peptides, peptides swill be tested against Ecoli n MRSA
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    usually antibiotics are used which also have side effects on human cells so alternating them with some protein would be a safer option thn antiiotics
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   if the antimicrobial peptide is found, it can help the society in overcoming certain microbial infections.
How will the solution works
    the algal biomass will be grown under lab setting, washed and dried into fine powder, algal suspension from biomass is made, disrupted by mechincal ways,proteins are extracted, hydrolyzed by enzymes, antimicrobial activity aginst Ecoli MRSA and Entero would be performed using the hydrolysate, zones of inhibition will be measured and reported.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    anyone working on similar algal species can be our competitor
