Purification and characterization of halotolerant, thermostable alkaline L-glutaminase from a Bacillus sp. LKG-01 (MTCC 10401), isolated from Gangotri region of Uttarakhand Himalaya, is being reported in this paper. Enzyme has been purified 49-fold from cell-free extract with 25% recovery (specific activity 584.2 U/mg protein) by (NH₄)₂SO₄ precipitation(More)
Four marine actinobacteria tolerant to 200 g NaCl l−1 were screened for antibacterial activity against eight patient-derived multiple drug resistant (MDR) bacteria. The active compound (MW 300.2, predicted molecular formula C20H28O2) from an actinobacterium, was inhibitory to three Gram-positive and three Gram-negative MDR bacteria, seven non-clinical(More)
Fast algorithms are important for efficient image processing systems for handling large set of calculations. To speedup the processing, parallel implementation of an algorithm can be done using Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). GPU is general purpose computation hardware; programmability and low cost make it productive. Binarization is widely used technique(More)
The first ribonuclease (RNase) from the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides phylum, dominant in the marine environment, and also from the first Bizionia species isolated from the tropics was purified and characterized. Extracellular RNase production occurred when the culture medium contained 5-7% (w/v) NaCl. The 53.0 kDa enzyme was purified 29 folds with a(More)
Ethanol production from sugarcane bagasse pith hydrolysate by thermotolerant yeast Kluyveromyces sp. IIPE453 was analyzed using response surface methodology. Variables such as Substrate Concentration, pH, fermentation time and Na2HPO4 concentration were found to influence ethanol production significantly. In a batch fermentation, optimization of key process(More)
Xylitol, as an alternative low calorie sweetener is well accepted in formulations of various confectioneries and healthcare products. Worldwide it is industrially produced by catalytic hydrogenation of pure d-xylose solution under high temperature and pressure. Biotechnological xylitol production is a potentially attractive replacement for chemical process,(More)
Fast and accurate algorithms are necessary for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) systems to perform operations on document images such as pre-processing, segmentation, feature extraction, training and testing of classifiers and post processing. Text line and word segmentation are two important steps in any OCR system. Wrong segmentation may affect the(More)
In this paper, we present JADE, a framework that allows a developer to mix C and JavaScript constructs with JADE supplied keywords to construct a complete program to solve a particular computing activity in a `thing'. We describe the language constructs introduced by JADE and explain how they can be used to implement different software interaction patterns(More)
Image processing and pattern recognition algorithms take more time for execution on a single core processor. Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is more popular now-a-days due to their speed, programmability, low cost and more inbuilt execution cores in it. Most of the researchers started work to use GPUs as a processing unit with a single core computer system(More)
Binarization is widely used technique in many of the image processing applications. Fast algorithms are needed for fast and efficient image processing systems. Many algorithms of image processing and pattern recognition have recently been implemented on Graphic Processing Unit (GPU) for faster computational times. GPUs are most prominent hardware in(More)
