Purification of a cellulase from cellulolytic gut bacterium, Bacillus tequilensis G9 and its evaluation for valorization of agro-wastes into added value byproducts
Bioconversion of lignocellulosic (LC) biomass is the most promising alternative to rapidly dwindling fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions. In view of this objective, Bacillus tequilensis strainExpand
Statistical optimization of lignocellulosic waste containing culture medium for enhanced production of cellulase by Bacillus tequilensis G9
The ever increasing energy demands of modern civilization and rapidly dwindling fossil fuels point towards a renewable substitute like biofuels. However, higher costs associated with biofuelExpand
Importance of genetic data in resolving cryptic species: A century old problem of understanding the distribution of Minervarya syhadrensis Annandale 1919, (Anura: Dicroglossidae).
Frogs of the genus Minervarya are cryptic and widely distributed in South Asia. However, many of them lack information about the precise type locality, genetic data, and distribution range. TheExpand
