Genetic Transformation and Techniques
The process of transfer, intigration and expression of transgene in the host cells is known as genetic transformation. In molecular biology, transformation is the genetic alteration of a cell resulting from the direct uptake and incorporation of exogeneous genetic material from its surroundings through the cell membrane(s).

Benefits of Spirulina
Spirulina is a natural algae (cyanobacteria) powder that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants-vitamins and other nutrients. When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available. It is largely made up of protein and essential amino acids, and is typically recommended to vegetarians due to its high natural iron content.

Organic Vegetables for Health and Environment
The indiscriminate use of chemicals in modern intensive agriculture has led to the growing concern towards health and environment and there is a need to look towards alternate form of production method that completely avoids or have minimal use of synthetics. Organic farming is one of the broad spectrums of production methods that restricts the use of chemicals and depends on organic inputs. Organic farming of vegetables is gaining momentum worldwide on account of increased human labour employment, lower cost of cultivation, higher profits, better input use efficiency and reduced risk leading to increased income, enhanced self reliance and livelihood security of the farmers. Further, organic production method of vegetables has positive impact on soil, human health improvements, conservation and water use efficiency demonstrating substantial potential for sustenance of soil and water resources.

Pyramiding of Disease Resistance Genes in Vegetable Crops
Gene pyramiding is defined as a method aimed at assembling multiple desirable genes from multiple parents into a single genotype. The end product of a gene pyramiding program is a genotype with all of the target genes.

Marker-Assisted Selection in Crop Improvement
Marker Assisted Selection refers to indirect selection for a desired plant phenotype based on the banding pattern of linked molecular (DNA) markers. MAS is based on the concept that it is possible to infer the presence of a gene from the presence of a marker which is tightly linked to the gene of interest. MAS is applicable for genetic improvement of plants as well as animals. In plants, it is equally applicable in both self-pollinated and cross pollinated species. This technique can be used as a tool for conventional breeding approaches thereby reducing the time required for development of new varieties.

Betula Utilis: A Potential Medicinal Plant
In India, we are using plants and herbs to cure the diseases because of medicinal properties of these plants. Herbals which form a part of our nutrition and provide us an additional therapeutic effect are in demand and Betula utilis is one of such plant. Betula utilis is a very important traditional medicinal plant which is widespread throughout the Himalayan region, growing at elevations up to 4,500 m (14,800 ft) commonly known as Bhoj patra and birch tree. There are about 250,00 species of genus Betula out of which more than one thousand plants have been found to possess considerable pharmacological properties

Heterosis - Its Types and Theories
Heterosis may be defined as the superiority of an F1, hybrid over both its parents in terms of yield or some other character. Heterosis, or hybrid vigour, describes the superior performance of heterozygous hybrid individuals compared with their homozygous parental inbred lines.

India: From BT Cotton to GM Mustard
The Indian agriculture is always in thirst of commercializing the modern biotechnological techniques for improving the quality and quantity of crop produce, hence here there is elucidation of how Bt cotton has firm its roots in Indian soil, but Bt brinjal could not and why GM mustard fallen in controversy over its release.

Seaweed Extract Fertilizer: An Organic Nutrient Source
Use of biostimulants like seaweed extract fertilizer can enhance the effectiveness of conventional mineral fertilizers. The effect of seaweed extract is due to the micro and macroelements, vitamins and plant growth regulators present in it. It enhances the germination of seeds, increases uptake of plant nutrients, gives resistance to frost and fungal diseases, effective for ripening of fruits and increasing shelf-life of the produce.

Gene Knockout: The Technology of Gene Targeting
Gene knockout (GO) is a genetic technique supplemented with biotechnological tool, in which an organism is engineered to carry gene that has been made inoperative. These genes are known as knockouts; used in assigning function to specific genes having unknown function. Gene knockout strategy, reverse genetic tools, used to determine the function of target genes by gene technology, mutagenesis & homologous recombination. Homologous recombination permits gene exchange in vivo. This approach is commonly used in Arabdopsis to nullify the gene function. The technology was primordially developed in yeast Saccharomyces cerevisae. In a study, a group of Melbourne based company & other Japanese Suntory Companies tried to develop world’s biggest blue rose in 2008 by RNAi technology, making a rose with blue pigment. In another study, knockout mouse was first reported through homologous recombination. Knock-out mouse are often used as weapons for studying gene products & their functions.

Aloe Vera farming: Protection against climate change in Rajasthan
Aloe Vera is a very hardy perennial tropical plant that can be cultivated in drought area as well. The plant become very popular due to their medicinal valve. The plant also called miracle plant or nature tonic. This plant is native to Africa and Mediterranean region. It belong to family of liliaceae. This plant is being used extensively in cosmetic industry and consumer product segments.

Are GMO a Panacea for Ensuring Food Security?
The introduction of Genetically Modified (GM) crops have kick started a huge controversy across the world. Genetic Engineering as a technology and its products, Genetically Engineered/modified organisms, are yet to answer many a questions on their impacts to environment and human health. The unpredictability and irreversibility of Genetic Engineering and the uncontrollability of GE crops in the environment coupled with studies pointing at the potential risk to human health and environment has resulted in a controversy across the world around the need for introducing such potentially risky organisms.

What are Biofertilizers ?
Biofertilize is a substance which contains living microorganism which, when applied to seed, plant surfaces, or soil, colonizes the rhizosphere or the interior of the plant and promotes growth by increasing the supply or availability of primary nutrients to the host plant.Biofertilizers are not fertilizers.
