Research Activities
My research covers the following aspects:

  1. Investigations of comparative antibacterial activity of various extractsof the plant "Commiphoramyrrha" with emphasis on Candidaalbicans, Pseudomonasareuginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus albus and Bacillus subtilis.
  2. Toxic effect of plant products and feed additives in chickens, rats and small ruminants especially goats.In these studies, clinical, pathological, biological, haematological, micobiological and histological techniques have been used.
  3. The use of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) in studying phylogenetic relationships of the endangered Arabian gazelles in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabian and in the Arabian Peninsula. I have also used the PCR techniques for detection of animal pathogens including bacteria, parasites and viruses. Of these organisms I worked with: Brucella abortus and Brucella melitensis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium bovis, Mycobacterium avium, Pasteurella multocida, Anaplasma spp., Sarcocystis spp., Theileria spp., Babesia spp., Avian Influenza (AI) and Malignant Catarrhal Fever (MCF) viruses.
