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)
In the present study, 20 sandalwood (Santalum album L.) genotypes were characterized using RAPD, ISSR and SSR markers. Twenty-five RAPD and twenty-one ISSR primers that generated clear and reproducible banding patterns amplified 225 and 208 bands, respectively, among 20 sandalwood genotypes. Out of 225, 181 (83.13 %) RAPD bands were polymorphic while out of(More)
Isabgol (Plantago ovata Forsk.) is an important medicinal plant having high pharmacological activity in its seed husk, which is substantially used in the food, beverages and packaging industries. Nevertheless, isabgol lags behind in research, particularly for genomic resources, like molecular markers, genetic maps, etc. Presently, molecular markers can be(More)
There is a lack of information on the molecular characterization of Ocimum species and hence, efforts have been made under the present study to characterize 17 Ocimum genotypes belonging to 5 different species (O. basilicum, O. americanum, O. sanctum, O. gratissimum and O. Polystachyon) through random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and inter simple(More)
Understanding the plant-pathogen interactions is of utmost importance to design strategies for minimizing the economic deficits caused by pathogens in crops. With an aim to identify genes underlying resistance to downy mildew, a major disease responsible for productivity loss in pearl millet, transcriptome analysis was performed in downy mildew resistant(More)
Metallic nanoparticles have huge applications in all the fields including agriculture and its allied sciences. This study aims at evaluating possible implications of iron oxide nanoparticles on the growth and development of rice (Oryza sativa L.). Rice is feeding hunger of half of the World’s population and yet found to be highly sensitive towards iron(More)
Molecular characterization of 19 Jatropha accessions that included 15 accessions of J.curcas and 4 different species was carried out using 3 different markers systems. Highest polymorphism (96.67%) was recorded by RAPD followed by DAMD (91.02%) and ISSR (90%). Polymorphism Information Content (PIC) was higher for DAMD (0.873) and almost equal for RAPD(More)
Forssk, semen, primarily the clinical data. Herbal medicinal products HMPC Community herbal monograph wellestablished use ispaghula husk Plantago ovata Forssk.Although true psyllium comes from the plant Plantago psyllium, the husk and seed of Plantago ovata Plantaginaceae is commonly referred to as psyllium.Plantago ovata is a stemless, soft, hairy annual(More)
Cross-species transferability and expressed sequence tags (ESTs) in public databases are cost-effective means for developing simple sequence repeats (SSRs) for less-studied species like medicinal plants. In this study, 11 EST-SSR markers developed from 742 available ESTs of Withania Somnifera EST sequences and 95 SSR primer pairs derived from other(More)
Molecular markers associated or linked with a particular trait are immensely essential for marker-assisted selection. Downy mildew is a severe disease in pearl millet causing huge production losses annually. There is a need to develop reliable functional markers associated with downy mildew resistance. In this study, expressed sequence tag-SSR (EST-SSRs)(More)
