The gram pod borer (Helicoverpa armigera Hubner) is the most serious insect pest of pigeonpea. It is highly susceptible to the insecticidal proteins of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). A codon-optimized chimeric Cry1Aabc gene of Bt driven by a constitutive promoter was introduced in pigeonpea (cv. Asha) to confer resistance against the insect. A total of eight(More)
The digital images are corrupted by impulse noise due to errors generated in camera sensors, analog-to-digital conversion and communication channels. Therefore it is necessary to remove impulse noise in-order to provide further processing such as edge detection, segmentation, pattern recognition etc. Filtering a noisy image, while preserving the image(More)
Production of transgenic pigeonpea is becoming increasingly important, but the methods currently employed in production and subsequent screening still requires improvement. Here, we describe Agrobacterium-mediated genetic transformation of pigeonpea with reporter uidA (gus) gene and selectable marker, neomycin phospho-transferase (nptII) gene. Histochemical(More)
The increasing interest in image fusion (combining images of two or more modalities such as infrared and visible light radiation) has led to a need for accurate and reliable image assessment methods. This paper gives a novel approach of merging the information content from several videos taken from the same scene in order to rack up a combined video that(More)
