Complete Genome Sequence, Phylogenetic Relationships and Molecular Diagnosis of an Indian Isolate of Potato Virus X
The complete genome of a Potato virus X (PVX) isolate from India (ptDel-9), which occurred symptomlessly in potato but induced ringspots on Nicotiana tabacum cv. Xanthi and necrotic mosaic onExpand
Chloroplast DNA Phylogeography of Holy Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) in Indian Subcontinent
All isolates except that from North-Central India formed a distinct phylogenetic clade, notwithstanding low bootstrap support and collapse of the clade in Bayesian Inference, which indicates a distinct haplotype of O. tenuiflorum. Expand
Effect on Cellular Membrane Fatty Acids in the Stressed Cells of Leuconostoc Mesenteroides: A Native Probiotic Lactic Acid Bacteria
The work was done on a native isolated culture, which has antimicrobial properties against 6 toxic food pathogens and resistance to common antibiotics so as to maintain normal intestinal microflora and the ability to adhere hydrocarbon provides evidence that the culture can adhere and colonize the intestinal tract. Expand
Microbial taxonomy in the era of OMICS: application of DNA sequences, computational tools and techniques
A review of genomic approaches that can be included in the scheme of taxonomy of bacteria and archaea based on computational and in silico advances to boost the credibility of taxonomic classification in this genomic era is presented. Expand
Parapedobacter indicus sp. nov., isolated from hexachlorocyclohexane-contaminated soil.
The results of physiological and biochemical tests and 16S rRNA sequence analysis clearly demonstrated that strain RK1(T) represents a novel species of the genus Parapedobacter, for which the name Parapeobacter indicus sp. Expand
Serological Detection of Cymbidium mosaic and Odontoglossum ringspot viruses in Orchids with Polyclonal Antibodies Produced Against Their Recombinant Coat Proteins
The immunoreagents the authors developed will be useful for virus indexing in orchid certification programmes and will be helpful for virusIndexing in Orchid Certification programmes. Expand
Sphingopyxis flava sp. nov., isolated from a hexachlorocyclohexane (HCH)-contaminated soil.
Results obtained from DNA-DNA hybridization and chemotaxonomic and phenotypic analyses clearly distinguished strain R11HT from its closest phylogenetic neighbours, suggesting that it represents a novel species of the genus Sphingopyxis. Expand
Luteimonas tolerans sp. nov., isolated from hexachlorocyclohexane-contaminated soil.
Data obtained from phylogenetic analysis, DNA-DNA hybridization, and chemotaxonomical and biochemical analyses supports classification of strain UM1T as representative of a novel species of the genus Luteimonas, for which the name Luteamonas tolerans sp. Expand
Draft genome sequence of Lampropedia cohaerens strain CT6T isolated from arsenic rich microbial mats of a Himalayan hot water spring
Strain CT6T was found to harbour genes involved in both the Entner-Duodoroff pathway and non-phosphorylated ED pathway, providing survival advantages at a thermal location and demonstrating the diverse genetic potential for survival at stressed niches. Expand
Genome Mining and Predictive Functional Profiling of Acidophilic Rhizobacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens Pt14
Pseudomonas fluorescens Pt14 is a non-pathogenic and acidophilic bacterium isolated from acidic soil (pH 4.65). Genome sequencing of strain Pt14 was performed using Single Molecule Real Time (SMRT)Expand
