The nucleocapsid (N) protein of Chandipura virus (CHPV) plays a crucial role in viral life cycle, besides being an important structural component of the virion through proper organization of its interactions with other viral proteins. In a recent study, the authors had mapped the associations among CHPV proteins and shown that N protein interacts with four… (More)
— Recently there has been considerable interest in applying evolutionary and natural computing techniques for analysing large datasets with large number of features. In particular, efficacy prediction of siRNA has attracted a lot of researchers, because of large number of features involved. In the present work, we have applied the SVM based classifier along… (More)
Plants like Arabidopsis thaliana are convenient model systems to study fundamental questions related to regulation of the stress transcriptome in response to stress challenges. Microarray results of the Arabidopsis transcriptome indicate that several genes could be upregulated during multiple stresses. High-salinity, drought, and low temperature are three… (More)
The adsorption of lead and zinc ions on bed sediments of the River Kali in western Uttar Pradesh, India, has been studied. The role of the coarser sediment fraction (210-250 jtm) in controlling metal pollution has been elucidated and compared to those of the clay and silt fractions. The parameters controlling metal uptake, viz., solution pH, sediment dose,… (More)
The River Kali in western Uttar Pradesh, India is a typical water course for untreated municipal and industrial effluents. The river receives considerable amounts of waste every day from the industries and municipal area of Muzaffarnagar town. Agricultural runoff is the other major factor in pollution of the river water. The mass balance calculations… (More)
A laboratory study was performed to study the effects of various operating factors, viz. initial metal ion concentration, solution pH, amount of sediment, contact time, particle size and temperature on the adsorption of zinc ions onto the bed sediments of the River Ganga (India). The equilibrium time was found to be of the order of 60 min. The adsorption… (More)
Genomic sequence data are often available well before the annotated sequence is published. We present a method for analysis of genomic DNA to identify coding sequences using the GeneScan algorithm and characterize these resultant sequences by BLAST. The routines are used to develop a system for automated annotation of genome DNA sequences.
The lack of complete treatments and appearance of multiple drug-resistance strains of Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) are causing an increased risk of lung infections in cystic fibrosis patients. Bcc infection is a big risk to human health and demands an urgent need to identify new therapeutics against these bacteria. Network biology has emerged as one… (More)
