  • No Photo Genome Sequence of Potato Reveals Mechanism of Tuberization and Disease Resistance    By: Dr. Prasanta K. Dash

    The devastating disease of late-blight in potato has created havoc in history. However, the disease still prevails among the potato growing region of world and was difficult to be curtailed due to neopolyploidy nature and vegetative propagation of the crop. With decoding of the potato genome, understanding the molecular basis of the disease infestation as well as exploitation of biochemical pathways leading to tuberization will be accelerated for its varietal improvement. >> Category: Biotech Research

  • No Photo Dichondra: Perfect Ground Cover for Shaded Lawns    By: Dr. Babita Singh

    Dichondra is not a turf grass but a fast growing ground cover. This is a perennial warm season grass with fine texture which has a prostrate or creeping growth habit with circular leaves. It grows very close to the ground, (usually not over 2 inches tall).It is adapted to warmer climates, but will retain its striking green color during winter temperatures as below 0 degree C with only slight leaf browning. dichondra has broad, almost circular leaves and when mowed low establishes a thick dense carpet look. It is now used in many ground cover situations where normal grasses may not do as well. It will develop beautiful white flowers throughout most of the warmer months which also lay close to the ground which add a stunning cottage feel to lawns and gardens, and which often visually blends both lawns and gardens together in a very pleasing manner. The cascading habit also makes this attractive plant perfect for rock walls or window boxes. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo Role of Espaliers in Creating Living Sculptures    By: Dr. Ritu Jain

    Espalier' refers to the training of a plant or tree to grow flat against a wall or trellis. Espalier has considerable merit in today's garden design. The practice was originally used in the old world to conserve space in small orchards and gardens. Today, espaliers are used for introducing a decorative accent in the landscape the espalier plant is very definitely favored when the plot of ground is narrow, against wall or fences. This method of growing shrubs and trees is certainly decorative and conserves space.The word espalier is French, and it comes from the Italian spalliera, meaning 'something to rest the shoulder (spalla) against'. During the 17th Century, the word initially referred only to the actual trellis or frame on which such a plant was trained to grow, but over time it has come to be used to describe both the practice and the plants themselves.[1] The practice was popularly used in the middle ages in Europe to produce fruit inside the walls of a typical castle courtyard without interfering with the open space and to decorate solid walls by planting flattened trees near them. Vineyards have used the technique in the training of grapes for hundreds or perhaps even thousands of years. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo Participatory Plant Breeding - Farmers have the opportunity to choose    By: Dr. Madhu Patial

  • No Photo Tips to Keep Cut Flowers Fresh for Long Time    By: Dr. Ritu Jain

    Flowers are highly perishable commodities and there are enormous losses in value of cut flower all along the market channel and are estimated to be 30-40 per cent of farm value. Flowers needs gentle handling as they continue to live after harvest at the expense of reserve food. The nature and extent of postharvest damage is typical for each crop or cultivar. The post harvest losses become important especially when dealing with the export of fresh flowers to distant and foreign market. Therefore, patient, soft and expert handling of flowers is of utmost importance after harvest. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo Integrated Farming System with Gender Perspective    By: Pampi Paul

  • No Photo Microarray Informatics Approach to Find Drug Targets in Prostate Cancer    By: Shilpa Shiragannavar

    Systematic approach for drug discovery is an emerging discipline in systems biology research area. It aims at integrating interaction data and experimental data to elucidate diseases and also raises new issues in drug discovery for cancer treatment. Many studies have used DNA microarrays to identify the gene expression signatures of human cancer, yet the critical features of these often unmanageably large signatures remain elusive. The regulation of gene expression is a dynamic process, hence it is of vital interest to identify and characterize changes in gene expression over time. >> Category: Bioinformatics
  • No Photo Role of RNAi Technology in Solanaceous Vegetables    By: Hanuman Ram

    Gene silencing is a eukaryotic genome defense system against viruses and mobile DNA elements that works by processing double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) into short interfering RNA (siRNA). RNA interference (RNAi) refers to a multi-step process, including the introduction of double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) into a cell, cleavage of dsRNA into short interfering RNA (siRNA) 21- 26 nt in size, formation of RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC), degradation of complementary mRNA, and suppression of target gene expression. RNAi technology has become a powerful tool for the study of the functions of individual genes in a range of organisms. >> Category: Agriculture

  • No Photo Climate Change and Extension Role in Adaptation Practices    By: Arjun Verma

    Climate is an ever changing phenomenon and are experienced by all type of communities whether it may be poor or rich around the world, but poor communities much more affected because they have much higher levels of vulnerability to environmental determinants of health, wealth and other factors, and much lower levels of capacity available for coping with environmental change. Extension can help farmers to prepare for greater climate variability and uncertainty, create contingency measures to deal with exponentially increasing risk, and alleviate the consequences of climate change by providing advice on how to deal with droughts, floods, and so forth. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo ICT as a Support Tool of Extension for Agricultural and Rural Development    By: Arjun Verma

    Rural development encompasses the development of agriculture, socio-economic infrastructure and human resources in rural areas. For this development communication has to emerge as an important policy instrument integrating economic, social, education and cultural planning. The electronic mass communication has been considered as a potential tool for development of rural people. Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be cost effectively and practically employed to facilitate information delivery and knowledge sharing among farmers, extension agents and other stakeholders >> Category: Agriculture

Dear Linda,

Investigation is required to know effect of IR on nylon fibre.

Article: Microbial Production of Vitamin B12 - Comment by: Sonali Bhawsar - 2016-08-29

Dear avnswamy,

You need to develop and try this particular protocol of controlled CO2 evolution and subsequent B12 production.

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: Mark - 2016-08-28

While the symptoms of exposure of those various chemicals is, I assume, accurate, I do not believe you are actually exposed to concentrations of the various dyes and treatment chemicals that would result in acute symptoms.

The lack of any citations, author affiliations, or follow-up on specific chemicals (e.g. "Since the monomers are toxic, the toxicity of their polymerization product should not be ignored") suggests that you've done enough googling to discuss the hazards, but haven't investigated the relative effects (e.g. You're not thoroughly checking whether these things actually happen)

As a rebuttal, I present Polydimethysiloxane - PDMS.

The monomers are often cytotoxic and consdered carcinogenic, but

"PDMS is optically clear, and, in general, inert, non-toxic, and non-flammable."

The polymerization product is only toxic if monomers fail to polymerize, but even then they can be washed out with nonpolar organic solvents.

With this in mind, how can you proceed to wildly speculate on the toxicity of sythetic fibers without peer-reviewed studies backing your claim?

Do you even know what blood serum concentrations would have to be achieved for any of the symptoms you listed?

I believe this article could hold sway with critics if you merely cited one source.
