The amount and nature of preexisting variation in a population of RNA viruses is an important determinant of the virus's ability to adapt rapidly to a changed environment. However, direct quantification of this preexisting variation may be cumbersome, because potentially beneficial alleles are typically rare, and isolation of a large number of subclones is(More)
As a part of integrated study of makhana, the mineral contents of the plant parts and the fruits of makhana (Euryale ferox) have been presented here. It has been observed that the fruits were not only rich in minerals but also in protein. The plant parts also contained high amounts of micronutrients. Its fruits are, therefore, a good supplement for minerals(More)
Simple and multiple relationships between biomass yield of makhana (E. ferox) and various soil and water properties have been investigated. The constituents, of the water phase were more closely related to the biomass yield than those in the solid phase. Most of the constituents in the water had more highly significant correlation coefficients with biomass(More)
Virus strains with a history of repeated genetic bottlenecks frequently show a diminished ability to adapt compared to strains that do not have such a history. These differences in adaptability suggest differences in either the rate at which beneficial mutations are produced, the effects of beneficial mutations, or both. We tested these possibilities by(More)
Analysis of regularly collected samples of soil and water from Makhana (Euryale ferox) growing ponds indicated that pH of soil and water were established near neutrality and C/N of soil near ten. Bicarbonate dominated soil extract while chloride dominated standing water. During grand growth period (March to June), Ca2++Mg2+, NH 4 + K+ increased while Na+(More)
We explored the relationship between fitness change and population size during transmission in vesicular stomatitis populations of very high fitness. The results show a linear correlation between the logarithm of the critical bottleneck size (population size at which there are no significant fitness changes after 20 passages) and the initial fitness of the(More)
