Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) allow vehicles to form a self-organized network without any fixed infrastructure. VANETs have received wide attention and numerous research issues have been identified in the recent time. The design and implementation of efficient and scalable routing protocols for VANETs is a challenging task due to high dynamics and(More)
Pre- and post-harvest anthracnose fruit rot is a main disease of chilli (Capsicum spp.). Among Colletotrichum species causing anthracnose, C. capsici is the most common in India. A total of 41 Capsicum genotypes were screened for anthracnose resistance under field conditions. Bhut Jolokia, PBC-380 and IC-383072 were found symptomless and some marginally(More)
The inheritance of sex expression in cucumber (Cucumis sativus) and other cucurbits is well documented; however, the genetics of female sex (gynoecism) expression in bitter gourd (Momordica charantia) has not been described. Inheritance of gynoecism in bitter gourd was studied in a 100% gynoecious line (Gy263B). The F(2) and testcross segregation data(More)
A sound knowledge of the genetic diversity among germplasm is vital for strategic germplasm collection, maintenance, conservation and utilisation. Genomic simple sequence repeats (SSRs) and random amplified microsatellite polymorphism (RAMPO) markers were used to analyse diversity and relationships among 48 pepper (Capsicum spp.) genotypes originating from(More)
Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for plant height (PHT) and other yield-related traits including number of fruits per plant (NFP), ten fruits weight (TFW), fruit length (FL), fruit width (FW), total fruit weight (ToFW) and pericarp thickness (PT) were mapped in intraspecific advanced recombinant inbred line (RIL) populations of pepper. The RILs were evaluated(More)
Sensor nodes are mostly battery operated and are usually deployed in difficult to access locations. So, minimizing energy consumption is a key task in design of a Wireless Sensor Networks. Deterministic node placement can be an important optimization means for achieving design goals. In this paper we have proposed and compared three deterministic relay node(More)
Crop breeding research by international agricultural research centers usually serves public sector crop breeding, but does it still have a role when research and development have shifted to the private sector? This paper explores this question for vegetables in India using data from 27 private companies and 9 public organizations. We focus on tomato(More)
INTRODUCTION Fibroadenomas are benign neoplasms usually arising between the ages of 15-25 years. Approximately 0.4% fibroadenomas arise in juvenile age group. Usually the diagnosis is straightforward by clinical examination and FNAC. But sometimes rapid growth and giant size may pose difficulty in clinical approach. CASE PRESENTATION In this paper we are(More)
