Discovery of Rare Mutations in Populations: TILLING by Sequencing1[C][W][OA]
A method based on Illumina sequencing of target genes amplified from multidimensionally pooled templates representing 768 individuals per experiment, providing high sensitivity and specificity and compared favorably with other molecular and computational approaches. Expand
Adsorption thermodynamics of carbofuran on Sn (IV) arsenosilicate in H+, Na+ and Ca2+ forms
Abstract The adsorption thermodynamics of carbofuran was studied on Sn (IV) arsenosilicate cation exchanger in the H+, Na+ and Ca2+ forms at 25 and 50°C. The adsorption isotherms of carbofuran wereExpand
Socio-economic background of wastewater irrigation and bioaccumulation of heavy metals in crops and vegetables
Water scarcity is one of the main constraints for agriculture sector in many countries. It pushes the farmers to use wastewater for irrigation as an available alternate, especially in peri-urbanExpand
Assessment of salinity tolerance based upon seedling root growth response functions in maize (Zea mays L.)
Both Ct and C50 appeared to quantify accession tolerance, and the expression of root growth as a function of NaCl concentrations provides a useful guideline for salt tolerance. Expand
Phytoplankton diversity at Watlab Ghat in Wular Lake, Kashmir
The present study on Wular Lake, located at a distance of 34 km from Srinagar city of Kashmir valley, was undertaken from March, 2007 to February, 2008 to study various limnological parametersExpand
Length-weight relationship of a carp,Labeo bata (Ham.)
The study of length-weight relationship ofLabeo bata (Ham.) revealed that this fish did not strictly follow the cube law and the weight increases at a rate more than the cube of the length. NoExpand
Diversity, Mutation and Recombination Analysis of Cotton Leaf Curl Geminiviruses
The findings suggest that CLCuMuV is spreading at an alarming rate, which can potentially be a threat to cotton production in the Indian subcontinent and appears to result in the emergence of viral isolates that caused epidemics in Pakistan and India. Expand
Consequences of Plant Breeding on Genetic Diversity
It is generally perceived that activities related to plant breeding have reduced the genetic diversity within crop species. Therefore, the impact of plant breeders’ activities i.e. introduction,Expand
Extraction of DNA suitable for PCR applications from mature leaves of Mangifera indica L.
A reliable and modified protocol based on the cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) method for DNA extraction from mature mango leaves is described here and showed good PCR amplification using simple sequence repeat (SSR) primers. Expand
