Sclerotinia is a phytopathogenic genus of fungi that form sclerotia: black, hard, seed-like functioning bodies. Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Sclerotinia minor are major threats to vegetable cultivation. In this study, we identified an efficient biocontrol agent against lettuce drop caused by S. minor. Initially, 43 bacterial strains isolated from(More)
Cholera is a severe diarrheal disease caused by Vibrio cholerae and remains as a major health risk in developing countries. The emergence and spread of multi-drug resistant V. cholerae strains during the past two decades is now a major problem in the treatment of cholera and have created the urgent need for the development of novel therapeutic agents.(More)
Fusarium wilt is an important disease of pigeonpea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.] and it can cause severe yield losses. Chemical control of this disease is difficult and expensive; therefore, cultivation of resistant varieties/hybrids is the most efficient strategy for enhancing the production. In the present study, by using a wilt susceptible(More)
A new genus, one new and two known species belonging to family Rhabdolaimidae are described and illustrated. Mediolaimus n. gen. is characterized by small-sized body; papilliform outer labial and cephalic sensilla; long, tubular stoma with stegostom having relatively larger dorsal and smaller sub ventral denticles at same level; cylindrical pharynx with(More)
Calcium phosphate (CaP) crystals are formed in pathological calcification as well as during stone formation. Although there are several theories as to how these crystals can develop through the combined interactions of biochemical and biophysical factors, the exact mechanism of such mineralization is largely unknown. Based on the published scientific(More)
Polymyxa graminis, a root endoparasite of several cereal species, is considered to be non-pathogenic but serves as a vector of various plant viruses belonging to the genera Bymovirus, Furovirus, and Pecluvirus. Specifically, it reduces barley productivity by transmitting the Barley Yellow Mosaic Virus (BaYMV). To date, due to its obligate biotrophic(More)
In Indian Railways, accidents have been caused due to failure of misleading the train with different speeds resulting in accidents and accidents due to invisibility of signal at the signal post. This paper is describes to prevent train accidents due to misleading of train speed and invisibility of signals at the signal post near to the station. To overcome(More)
