Over the last decade, homogeneous multi-core processors emerged and became the de-facto approach for offering high parallelism, high performance and scalability for a wide range of platforms. We are now at an interesting juncture where several critical factors (smaller form factor devices, power challenges, need for specialization, etc) are guiding(More)
Genetic dissection of grain weight in bread wheat was undertaken through both genome-wide quantitative trait locus (QTL) interval mapping and association mapping. QTL interval mapping involved preparation of a framework linkage map consisting of 294 loci {194 simple sequence repeats (SSRs), 86 amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) and 14 selective(More)
Genetic diversity was examined in a collection of 263 Indian bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars using 90 SSR markers. These cultivars were classified into Group I (pre-green revolution cultivars) and Group II cultivars (post-green revolution cultivars). SSR markers were also classified into Set-I SSRs (42 random genomic SSRs) and Set-II SSRs (48(More)
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), with a large genome (16000 Mb) and high proportion ( approximately 80%) of repetitive sequences, has been a difficult crop for genomics research. However, the availability of extensive cytogenetics stocks has been an asset, which facilitated significant progress in wheat genomic research in recent years. For instance, fairly(More)
Cloud computing is an Internet-based computing, where shared resources, software and information, are provided to computers and devices on-demand. It provides people the way to share distributed resources and services that belong to different organization. Since cloud computing uses distributed resources in open environment, thus it is important to provide(More)
Common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) contributes substantially to global food and nutritional security. Thus, an important goal of wheat breeding is to develop high-yielding varieties with better nutritional quality and resistance to all major diseases. During the present study, in the background of a popular elite wheat cultivar PBW343, we pyramided eight(More)
Association mapping was undertaken in common wheat to identify markers associated with pre-harvest sprouting tolerance (PHST). For this purpose, a population of 242 wheat genotypes and 250 SSR markers were used. The population used consisted of diverse germplasm, which carried sufficient phenotypic variation for PHS for conducting association mapping. The(More)
Rabies is endemic and an important zoonosis in India. There are very few reports available on molecular epidemiology of rabies virus of Indian origin. In this study to know the dynamics of rabies virus, a total of 41 rabies positive brain samples from dogs, cats, domestic animals, wildlife, and humans from 11 states were subjected to RT-PCR amplification of(More)
Common wheat is unique in providing a large number of diverse end-products, including chapati, biscuits, bread and noodles. Grain weight and other grain traits contribute to grain yield and milling quality. Many earlier QTL studies reported at least 332 QTLs for grain traits including grain weight. We conducted a QTL analysis (composite interval mapping) of(More)
