Common genome anchor points across many taxa greatly facilitate translational and comparative genomics and will improve our understanding of the Tree of Life. To add to the repertoire of genomic tools applicable to the study of monocotyledonous plants in general, we aligned Allium and Musa ESTs to Oryza BAC sequences and identified candidate Allium-Oryza(More)
Chenopodium ambrosioides L., commonly known as Mexican tea or American wormwood or West Indian Goosefoot or Epazote (family Chenopodiaceae), is a native of Central and South America and now distributed throughout the tropical parts of the world. It is an aromatic plant with grooved red-colored stem and oblong-lanceolate and toothed leaves, green flowers,(More)
The present studies entail formulation development of novel solid self-nanoemulsifying drug delivery systems (S-SNEDDS) of valsartan with improved oral bioavailability, and evaluation of their in vitro and in vivo performance. Preliminary solubility studies were carried out and pseudoternary phase diagrams were constructed using blends of oil (Capmul MCM),(More)
Crossing blocks of Mentha arvensis cv Kalka (menthol mint without carvone) and Mentha spicata cv Neera (carvone mint without menthol) in alternate rows (2:1::Kalka:Neera), and pollination of florets of Kalka with that from Neera, yielded a carvone-rich variant among the open-pollinated seedlings. The variant possesses the hybrid phenotype, including the(More)
A study was conducted around Chandigarh (Punjab), India to assess the effect of Populus deltoides shelterbelt on wheat. Crop density, root and shoot length, biomass and grain yield of wheat at crop maturity were significantly lower, up to 12 ± 1 m in the fields sheltered by P. deltoides than in unsheltered plots. The reduction of biomass and grain yield of(More)
Parthenin and its pyrolysed and photo-derivatives exhibit a range of growth regulatory effects depending on their structure. At 5 mg L-1 (the lowest concentration used) the activity of all parthenin derivatives was greater than that of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) in biotests based on growth and morphogenetic response of hypocotyl cuttings of Phaseolus(More)
In order to investigate geochemical environment of the river Ganga, the freshly deposited sediment samples were collected from Ghazipur, Buxar and Ballia urban centers in the pre-monsoon period (May, 2010). The river receives industrial as well as domestic wastes from various drains of above mentioned cities. River Ganga has been one of the major recipients(More)
