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)
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)
Genomic resource of type strains and historically important strains of genus Stenotrophomonas allowed us to reveal the existence of 18 distinct species by applying modern phylogenomic criterions. Apart from Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, S. africana represents another species of clinical importance. Interestingly, Pseudomonas hibsicola, P. beteli, and S.(More)
Anthracnose disease caused by Colletotrichum spp. is a serious disease of chili (Capsicum annuum), particularly in tropical countries. Host plant resistance breeding is one of the most effective disease management strategies. It requires identification of parents with genes resistant to Colletotrichum species predominant in a given region. For phenotypic(More)
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)
Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae ( Xoo) is a serious pathogen of rice causing bacterial leaf blight disease. Resistant varieties and breeding programs are being hampered by the emergence of highly virulent strains. Herein we report population based whole genome sequencing and analysis of 100 Xoo strains from India. Phylogenomic analysis revealed the clustering(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)
