Cluster bean/guar (Cyamopsis tetragonoloba), has an important place in industry because of its seeds, which contain galactomannan (guar gum) rich endosperm. Guar gum, an important ingredient of many products, is purely an export oriented commodity. Development of molecular markers for this crop is essential to accelerate breeding for guar gum content in(More)
Tecomella undulata (Sm.) Seem. (family Bignoniaceae) is an economically and pharmaceutically important small tree of arid regions of India, Pakistan and Arabia. It is well known as ‘Desert teak’ or ‘Marwar teak’ being the main source of timber amongst the tree species of desert region of Rajasthan, India. T. undulata has occupied a reputed position of(More)
Pearl millet is a major cereal in the arid and semi-arid regions of Asia and Africa. It is primarily cultivated for grain production, but its stover is also valued as dry fodder. Pearl millet is resilient to climate change due to its inherent adaptability to drought and high temperatures. It is also tolerant of saline and acid soils, and is well adapted to(More)
Indian jujube germplasm characterization, evaluation and improvement are fundamentally based on morpho-physiological traits. The lack of break through has been due to under utilization of genetic variability for superior quality and high yield potential. We report the extent of genetic diversity and relationships among 22 putative Ziziphus mauritiana(More)
Neurodegenerative diseases characterized by the presence of α-synuclein-a hallmark of pathologic inclusions termed Lewy bodies-include Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and multiple-system atrophy. Although motor symptoms are related to the altered presynaptic dopaminergic function in these diseases, the appearance of α-synuclein inclusions(More)
Three promising genotypes (CAZRI 75, CAZRI 2178 and CAZRI 2221) of buffel grass (Cenchrus ciliaris L.) were evaluated for maximization of seed production by imposing different cutting management practices, i.e. uncut (control), single cut at 30 and 45 days of sowing/regeneration and at 50 % flowering during 2010–2013 under arid conditions of Thar desert.(More)
