Dear Readers,



          From the Coordinator’s Desk!

         After the gradual lifting up of lockdown since June 08 2020 things are slowly returning back to normal, we must be aware and take necessary precautions and not let our guard down in the nations fight against the deadly viral disease COVID-19. This global pandemic though worse has left us with strong questions on how healthy is our life and our environment. It is time we should ensure that we are taking steps for betterment of this world for future generations to sustain. I believe all of us are aware of these facts and our DzUM ENVIS Newsletter has always put fourth these in its contents to the readers. This issue contains a review article on design and applications of microbial communities along with topics such as facts on the offspring of older mothers less likely to live long and prosper, process of chlamydiae replication in human cells, information on researchers collaboration on a strategy for sustainable aquaculture and about a novel natural dye for screening cell viability. Hope you find this issue very useful.
