Antagonism of Bacillus species (strain BC121) towards Curvularia lunata.
A soil bacterium, Bacillus sp. strain BC121, isolated from the rhizosphere of sorghum, showed high antagonistic activity against Curvularia lunata. A clear inhibition zone of 0.5-1 cm was observed in…

The genome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain NCIM3107, used in bioethanol production, is reported, and it is reported that it contains 5,435 protein-coding genes.
Auxin to improve green plant regeneration of rice anther culture
Recurrent parent IR58025eB proved to be the best genotype and He2 medium with Picloram (1 mg/L) concentration desirous for overall efficiency of green plant regeneration from induced callus.
Effect of culture media on improving anther culture response of rice (Oryza sativa L.).
Out of 13 genotypes evaluated, IR58025B with eui (25eB) was highly responsive for both callus induction as well as green plant regeneration, which can be use in development of improved parental lines through doubled haploidy.
Nitrogen Nutrition, Its Regulation and Biotechnological Approaches to Improve Crop Productivity
The recent explosion of research information and the mechanisms behind nitrogen sensing, signaling, transport and utilization enables biotechnological interventions for better nitrogen nutrition of crop plants.
EFFECT OF COLD PRETREATMENT ON IMPROVING ANTHER CULTURE RESPONSE OF RICE (Oryza sativa L.)
Present study was designed to evaluate the effect of cold pretreatment temperatures (4, 8 and 12 o C) and durations of treatment (5, 9 and 13 d) on anther culture efficiency among 13 genotypes.…

Cellulolytic bacteria isolated from various environments have been explored for proteins of potential use in lignocellulosic bioethanol production and it has been shown that the B. pumilus cellulase enzyme could be mutated to remove the catabolite repression.
Scope for utilization of native specialty landraces, cultivars and basmati types in rice heterosis breeding
Traditional landraces and basmati lines are useful pool of important traits and need to be analyzed for hybrid breeding utilization in rice to develop diverse restorers and maintainers, while maintainers could be utilized for developing new CMS lines.
