In this paper Shannon-Weaver (SI-3.58-4.07, SII-3.1-3.72, SIII-1.64-2.25, SIV-2.54-2.95 and SV-3.09-3.23) diversity index was applied to surface phytoplankton to study the water quality status of river Bhadra receiving Mysore paper mill and Iron and steel mill effluent. A total of 45 species of phytoplankton belonging to 5 classes were recorded and study(More)
Trace metal levels in the body organs of finfish, Oreochromis mossambicus (Peter) and relevant water was studied in Jannapura lake, located five kilometers from Bhadravathi town, Karnataka, India, during 2004-05. Lead, Copper and Cadmium accumulation was higher in muscles than in gills while, Zinc, Nickel and Cobalt accumulation was maximum in gills(More)
The ability of aquatic plants to absorb, translocate and concentrate metals has led to the development of various plant-based treatment systems. The potential to accumulate metals like iron, nickel, manganese and copper by Trapa bipinosa was assessed by subjecting them to different effluent concentrations of pulp and paper industry under laboratory(More)
Energy conservation is important for most of the developing countries, including rest of the world. The rapid depletion in world petroleum reserves and uncertainty in petroleum supply due to political and economical reasons, as well as the sharp escalations in the petroleum prices have stimulated the search for alternatives to petroleum fuels. The situation(More)
A qualitative study on species composition and diversity of phytoplankton flora was carried out in the Anjanapura reservoir. Water samples were collected monthly at four sites from November 2005 to October 2007 for plankton analysis. A total of 152 phytoplankton species belonging to 59 genera were recorded. The species belonging to genera Crucigenia,(More)
Citric acid is mainly produced by solid state fermentation by the filamentous fungus Aspergillus niger. Production of citric acid depends strongly on an appropriate strain and on operational conditions such as aeration, type and concentration of carbon source, nitrogen and phosphate limitation, pH, temperature, concentration of trace elements and morphology(More)
The depletion of world petroleum reserves and the increased environmental concerns have stimulated the search for alternative sources for petroleum-based fuel, including diesel fuels. Because of the closer properties, biodiesel fuel from non-edible oil is considered as the best candidate for diesel fuel substitute in diesel engines. With increasing demand(More)
Rheumatic arthritis is a chronic disease, which disables auto-immune system and ultimately affects a person’s ability to carry out everyday tasks. The prediction of genes involved in RA is an important application in bioinformatics. In order to analyze the proteins, locations and lengths of genomic sequence plays a prominent role in predicting the exons.(More)
