α- and β-Galactosidases find application in food processing, health and nutrition. Aspergillus niger is one of the potent producer of these enzymes and was genotypically improved using gamma-ray induced mutagenesis. The mutant-derivative produced two-fold higher α- and β-galactosidases. For testing genetic variability and its relationship with phenotypic(More)
Boron toxicity is one of the most important environmental stresses prevailing globally, which limits grain production. In wheat, tolerance to boron toxicity has been manipulated around the Bo1 locus on 7BL chromosome. However, there is a need to identify new diversity in other Triticeae to broaden the germplasm base for genetic improvement and greater(More)
An extensive study on spontaneous and 5-Fluorodeoxyuridine induced fragile sites identified Xq31 in cattle (Bos taurus) and (Xq24, Xq26) in sheep (Ovis aries) in addition to several autosomal fragile sites (under publication). A ZOO-FISH study using three cloned human fragile-X probes with CCG/CGG(n) trinucleotide repeat sequence was carried out to(More)
We studied the genetic variability due to mutation induced by γ-rays (10, 15, and 20 Kr) on various traits of twelve rice genotypes. Mutated and non-mutated seeds were sown in the field between July 2013 and 2014 using a split plot design. Yield and yield-related trait data was recorded, which showed significant (P < 0.05) genotypic and irradiation effects.(More)
