Oxygenases play a key role in degradation of the aromatic compounds in the wastewater. This study explores the oxygenase coding gene sequences from the metagenome of activated biomass. Based on these results, the catabolic capacity of the activated sludge was assessed towards degradation of naphthalene, anthracene, phenol, biphenyl and o-toluidine.(More)
Metagenome analysis was used to understand the microbial community in activated sludge treating industrial wastewaters at a Common Effluent Treatment Plant (CETP) in South India. The taxonomic profile mapped onto National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) taxonomy using MEtaGenome ANalyzer (MEGAN), demonstrated that the most abundant domain(More)
The 16S ribosomal RNA (16S rRNA) gene has been widely used for the taxonomic classification of bacteria. A molecular signature is a set of nucleotide patterns, which constitute a regular expression that is specific to each particular taxon. Our main goal was to identify discriminating nucleotide patterns in 16S rRNA gene and then to generate signatures for(More)
Loktak, one of the largest freshwater lakes of India, is known for floating islands (Phumdi), being made up of a heterogeneous biomass of vegetation and soil. This ecological site represents an exclusive environmental habitat wherein the rhizospheric microbial community of Phumdi plays a key role in biogeochemical cycling of nutrients. A culture-independent(More)
Glyptapanteles Ashmead (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Microgastrinae) is a cosmopolitan group of hyperdiverse parasitic wasps. The genus remains taxonomically challenging in India due to its highly speciose nature, morphological similarity amongst species and negligible host records. The Indian fauna is one of the most diverse and also the least studied. The(More)
DNA barcoding is widely used and most efficient approach that facilitates rapid and accurate identification of plant species based on the short standardized segment of the genome. The nucleotide sequences of maturaseK (matK) and ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate carboxylase (rbcL) marker loci are commonly used in plant species identification. Here, we present a(More)
