Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is an important legume crop in the semi-arid regions of Asia and Africa. Gains in crop productivity have been low however, particularly because of biotic and abiotic stresses. To help enhance crop productivity using molecular breeding techniques, next generation sequencing technologies such as Roche/454 and Illumina/Solexa were(More)
Molecular markers are the most powerful genomic tools to increase the efficiency and precision of breeding practices for crop improvement. Progress in the development of genomic resources in the leading legume crops of the semi-arid tropics (SAT), namely, chickpea (Cicer arietinum), pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan) and groundnut (Arachis hypogaea), as compared to(More)

Tropical cyclones (TCs, which include hurricanes and typhoons) are a major climate hazard across the Northern Hemisphere, and have exhibited variability and change on year-to-year timescales. Therefore, understanding and predicting future year-to-year TC activity is central to NOAA's mission and highly relevant to society. Of particular relevance for(More)
Skillful seasonal predictions of surface temperature and precipitation over land are in particular demand due to their influences on societal factors (such as agriculture, the energy sector and transportation) and ecosystems. Therefore, understanding and predicting future year-to-year of temperature and precipitation is central to NOAA's mission and highly(More)
Although chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.), an important food legume crop, is sensitive to salinity, considerable variation for salinity tolerance exists in the germplasm. To improve any existing cultivar, it is important to understand the genetic and physiological mechanisms underlying this tolerance. In the present study, 188 recombinant inbred lines (RILs)(More)
Vitamin B12 is an important substrate for various enzymes that act as a co factor(adenosylcobalamin)in the conversion of methyl malonyl coA to succinyl coA. Deficiency of vitamin b12 causes the accumulation of methylmalonyl co A as well as impaired dna synthesis leading to impaired myelin production and impaired olingodendrocyte growth and can affect any(More)
1. OVERVIEW AND MOTIVATION Data impulses, congestion, packet loss, and component failure are likely to undermine the performance of sensor networks, if left unchecked. In the Armstrong Project [4], we are developing a set of transport control algorithms that make sensor networks more resilient to these effects. We demonstrate how a mote sensor network(More)
