  • Author Photo Advances in Development of Marker-Free Transgenic Plants    By: Vijaykumar Ishwarbhai Prajapati

    Selectable marker genes (SMGs) and selection agents are useful tools in the production of transgenic plants. Most SMGs express protein products that confer antibiotic- or herbicide resistance traits, and typically reside in the end product of genetically modified (GM) plants. The presence of marker genes in their genomes becomes useless and their effects become unpredictable or even potentially dangerous. In recent years, several strategies have been developed to remove SMGs from GM products while retaining the transgenes of interest. This article describes the existing strategies for SMG removal, including the implementation of recently developed techniques like Mega-nuclease, TALENs, ZFNs and CRISPR. >> Category: Biotech Research

  • No Photo The History of Corn    By: Vaibhav P. Chaudhary

    Maize (Zea mays), also called corn, is believed to have originated in central Mexico 7000 years ago from a wild grass, and Native Americans transformed maize into a better source of food. Maize and its closest wild relatives, the teosintes, differ strikingly in the morphology of their female inflorescences or ears. Despite their divergent morphologies, several studies indicate that some varieties of teosinte are cytologically indistinguishable from maize and capable of forming fully fertile hybrids with maize. Thus, different hypothesis enumerating progress toward morphological evolution of maize from teosinte has been discussed. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo Gene Bookmarking - To keep the molecular pages open    By: Rama Prashat G

    The genetic material is transferred to the daughter cells and in subsequent generations through mitosis. Cells must have a way to remember the genes which are active before cell division and must follow the same pattern through mitosis into daughter cells. To remember which genes were active before the onset of mitosis, the active genes are in some way 'marked' and the daughter cells reassemble the transcriptional machinery on the promoters of those active genes. 'Gene bookmarking' is one of the mechanisms by which the phenotype is remembered through cell lineages. >> Category: Genetics

  • No Photo Carbon Trading: The Future Money Venture for India    By: Mahesh Kumar Malav

    India qualifies to be a host country for the CDM projects only. India is considered as one of the most potential countries in the world for CDM projects. This is due to its large power sector that depends on fossil fuels, and to the proactive policies of the Indian government towards CDM. The power sector alone is estimated to emit 433 million tonnes of CO2 per annum. The total CO2 reduction potential through CDM projects in India is estimated to be around 300 million tonnes. The largest potential is in the renewable energy sector with 90 million tonnes CO2 equivalents. The total expected average annual CER's from registered projects by India are about 22 million having a 15% world share. Hence the India has a large potential to earn carbon credits and in this context the carbon consultancy service has a greater part to play and is going to add a new dimension to the Environmental consultancy and financial services arena (Energy Information Administration, 2011). >> Category: Issues
  • No Photo Allele Mining in Crop Improvement: Prospects and Potentials    By: Kundansingh R. Jadhao

  • Author Photo Microbial Metal Bioaccumulation [PDF]    By: Fayaz Ahmad Malla

    Heavy-metal pollution represents an important environmental problem due to the toxic effects of metals, and their accumulation throughout the food chain leads to serious ecological and health problems. Metal remediation through common physico-chemical techniques is expensive and unsuitable in case of voluminous effluents containing complexing organic matter and low metal contamination. Biotechnological approaches that are designed to cover such niches have, therefore, received great deal of attention in the recent years. Biosorption studies involving low-cost and often dead/pre-treated biomass have dominated the literature and, subsequently, extensive reviews focusing on equilibrium and kinetics of metal Biosorption have also come up. >> Category: Biotech Research
  • Author Photo Environmental Informatics and its Applications    By: Fayaz Ahmad Malla

    Environmental informatics is the science of information applied to environmental science. As such, it provides the information processing and communication infrastructure to the interdisciplinary field of environmental sciences aiming at data, information and knowledge integration, the application of computational intelligence to environmental data as well as the identification of environmental impacts of information technology. The UK Natural Environment Research Council defines environmental informatics as the "research and system development focusing on the environmental sciences relating to the creation, collection, storage, processing, modelling, interpretation, display and dissemination of data and information". Environmental informatics emerged in early 1990 in Central Europe. >> Category: Bioinformatics
  • Author Photo Methanotrophs: As an Environmental Remedy    By: Lal Chand Malav

    Methanotrophic bacteria are inimitable and ubiquitous bacteria that utilize methane as a sole source of carbon and energy from the atmosphere. They are highly specialized group of aerobic bacteria and have a unique capacity for oxidation of certain types of organic pollutants like alkanes, aromatics, halogenated alkenes, etc. Oxidation reactions are initiated by the methane monooxygenases enzyme, which can be expressed by methanotrophs in the absence of copper. >> Category: Environmental Biotechnology

a great help

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: Sonali Bhawsar - 2015-07-16

Dear Mirela Bordean,
Let me consult about this question you have asked with expert/s in textile technology and applications. I hope then we will find appropriate solution.
Thanks for reading the article.

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: mirela bordean - 2015-07-12

I'm really interested in your opinion, it's pretty hard to find safe clothes, even cotton-less than 1% is not treated-so to go organic cotton is pretty hard to find clothes like that..lately it's hard for me to find cotton, e.g all thick tracksuits are made out of cotton/polyester.Really don't know where i can find something decent--i have a question for you: isn't it a method to get rid of the chemicals from rayon( it's natural to start with...), let's say by boiling them?

Article: Single Cell Protein- Advantages and Disadvantages - Comment by: Dr. Rohan H Wickramasinghe - 2015-07-06

Very interesting and useful article. However, there is an internal contradiction in the article. In the section 'Introduction' it is said that 'The term single cell protein was first coined by a group of scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) during 1996. However, in the section 'History' it is said that 'The term single cell protein was coined by Carol L Wilson during 1966. I think that 1966 is more likely to be correct as I have seen the term long before 1996. The term may have been used in a British newspaper around 1967 when reporting on the technology being developed by Rank-Hovis-McDougal (RHM). I visited the pilot plant around 1970 and the term may have been in use then.
