The combination of founder events, random drift and new selective forces experienced by introduced species typically lowers genetic variation and induces differentiation from the ancestral population. Here, we investigate microsatellite differentiation between introduced and native populations of the small Indian mongoose (Herpestes auropunctatus). Many(More)
Curcuma  zedoaria populations comprise 2n = 63 chromosomes with three satellite chromosomes showing elongated secondary constrictions. Flow cytometry results inferred that the 2C nuclear DNA values varied between the populations. The largest genome size was found in the population Chittagong (mean 3.37 pg) and the lowest in the Birganj population (mean 3.15(More)
Satellite-based tracking of migratory waterfowl is an important tool for understanding the potential role of wild birds in the long-distance transmission of highly pathogenic avian influenza. However, employing this technique on a continental scale is prohibitively expensive. This study explores the utility of stable isotope ratios in feathers in examining(More)
Curcuma zedoaria (Christm.) Roscoe, a member of the family Zingiberaceae, is one of the most widely distributed Curcuma species in Bangladesh. It is a well-known and important species because of its medicinal and horticultural values. However, some plant populations are predicted to be depleted due to habitat destruction and due to extensive collection by(More)
Manufacturing of miniaturized high activity (192)Ir sources have been made a market preference in modern brachytherapy. The smaller dimensions of the sources are flexible for smaller diameter of the applicators and it is also suitable for interstitial implants. Presently, miniaturized (60)Co HDR sources have been made available with identical dimensions to(More)
High shear wet granulation is a preferred manufacturing method of tablets. It allowed for rapid production of compressible granulations. The resultant granulation characteristics depend on a combination of formulation properties and processing parameters. Fully pregelatinized starches are currently being used as binders in wet granulated formulations. But(More)
The aim of this study is to ensure the MLC positional and leaf speed accuracy. To check the MLC positional and leaf speed accuracy picket fence and synchronized segmented stripes test pattern were performed. The relative and absolute dosimetric verification were analyzed in this study. This project was followed by Quality control for Intensity-Modulated(More)
An experiment was conducted at the Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture (BINA), Mymensingh, Bangladesh to evaluate the influence of fertilizer-N on biochemical characteristics, nutrient accumulation and yield of potatoes during the period from November 2002 to March 2003. Two varieties, namely Cardinal and Diamant and five levels of N viz. 0, 100,(More)
Morphological characters and Electrophoretic SDS-PAGE analysis were performed to established genetic diversity for six important lentil varieties of Bangladesh and to elucidate their genetic relationships. Analyses of variance of morphological characters showed significant differences among varieties. The resulted protein banding pattern showed 57.12%(More)
A new actinomycete strain was isolated from Western part of Bangladesh and identified as a new Streptomyces species on the basis of its morphological, biochemical, cultural characteristics and 16S rRNA data. The present paper describes the isolation and characterization of compound 1 from this new Streptomyces species with the help of various chemical and(More)
