The present Invention relates to the bioconversion process to produce bioactive cordyceps species from food/bakery waste. The Invention provides a process and the valuable bioactives like cordycepin (from Cordyceps) produced from bread waste. The Invention, in particular, provides a method to reuse the expired bread to culture Cordyceps militaris on bread waste. This method is economic, reduces wastage of expired bread, and cultivates this herb with immense health benefits.The present process is described considering Cordyceps militaris as one of the species, however the scope of the Invention is not limited and extends to other species of Cordyceps i.e. Cordyceps sinensis and others as well. Similarly, the Invention is described considering multigrain brown bread, regular bread, atta bread or combinations of multigrain brown bread, regular bread, atta bread. However, the scope of the Invention is not limited and extends to other bakery waste/food wastes as well

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
