The concept of establishing an elaborate facility for research on the hitherto under explored potential of halophytes was hence developed and the Institute of Sustainable Halophyte Utilization came into being with support from the University of Karachi and the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan.
Research at the Institute will explore the potential of halophytes for the benefit of mankind and focus on a comprehensive approach to understanding the mechanisms of salt tolerance in these plants through eco-physiological studies supported by biochemical, genetical and molecular arguments governing various responses.
