Molecular identification of microalgal species is vital and involves sequencing of specific markers present in the genome, which are unique to a genus. PCR is a vital tool for identification of microalgae; the preparation of template DNA for PCR by traditional methods requires large amount of algal cells and a time-consuming process. One simple way to(More)
Traditionally nanoparticles were produced only by physical and chemical methods. Often, chemical synthesis method leads to presence of some of the toxic chemical absorbed on the surface that may have adverse effect in the medical applications. This is not an issue when it comes to biosynthesized nanoparticles via green synthesis route .So, in the search of(More)
A rapid, cost effective method of metagenomic DNA extraction from soil is a useful tool for environmental microbiology. The present work describes an improved method of DNA extraction namely "powdered glass method" from diverse soils. The method involves the use of sterile glass powder for cell lysis followed by addition of 1% powdered activated charcoal(More)
Arthrospira species, under the name ‘Spirulina’, are used as food supplement for its protein, vitamins, and minerals which have several health benefits. Cyanobacterial toxins including microcystins can possibly contaminate these dietary supplements causing hepatotoxicity, tumour formation, and other disorders. The safe use of dietary supplements(More)
The paper reports the analysis of pond water, which is the source of human consumption. The pond water is contaminated with the domestic wastes, Agricultural wastes and municipal wastes. The collected pond water samples are analyzed for parameters, like Appearance and color, INTRODUCTION Water is very precious for every living organism on this earth. The(More)
