Inspite of the high potentialities, the Citrus had remained more or less a family need based cultivated plant. The large variation in traditional agro-ecosystems of the(More)
Cucumbers (Cucumis sativus) are considered to be native to India. The germplasm of cultivated and wild relatives is shown to grow in very diverse agroecological conditions of the country. The north-eastern region is shown to nold special significance for wild and cultivated germplasm. The disease and specific adaptation characters are bionted out. Future(More)

Mucormycosis is a highly aggressive disease which is usually fatal in immunocompromised patients. The species of mucormycetes show significant differences in susceptibility to amphotericin B, azoles and terbinafine. The precise species level identification for this fungal group could be achieved by internal transcribed-spacer (ITS) region sequencing.(More)

Glomerulonephritis (GN) is an immunological phenomenon in bacterial endocarditis. These may be pauci-immune/vasculitic GN, post-infective GN, and sub-endothelial membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. Each type of glomerulonephritis usually occurs in isolation. We report a case of infective endocarditis with dual existence of pauci-immune/vasculitic GN(More)
