The most important evolutionary event in the success of commercial tea cultivation outside China in ~30 countries came about by the origin of India hybrid tea in India, derived from the extensive spontaneous hybridization that took place between the Assam type tea growing in the forest regions of Assam, North-East India and China type tea introduced from(More)
We demonstrate an ultrastable CO 2 laser trap that provides tight confinement of neutral atoms with negligible optical scattering and minimal laser-noise-induced heating. Using this method, fermionic 6 Li atoms are stored in a 0.4 mK deep well with a 1͞e trap lifetime of 300 sec, consistent with a background pressure of 10 211 Torr. To our knowledge, this(More)
Tea (Camellia L.) is the world’s most consumed health drink and is also important economically. Due to its self-incompatible and outcrossing nature, tea is composed of highly heterogeneous germplasm. It is a perennial, slow-growing crop and hence the successful release of new improved cultivars following conventional breeding methods takes years. In this(More)
We derive a simple formula for the heating rate that arises from quantum-diffractive background gas collisions in atom traps. This result appears to explain the residual heating rates reported for recent experiments with a Cs vapor-loaded, far-detuned optical trap at Ӎ10 Ϫ9 Torr ͓Phys. Rev. Lett. 81, 5768 ͑1998͔͒. Diffractive collisions may determine the(More)

We present first results on masses of the scalar and tensor glueballs as well as of the torelon from simulations of QCD with two light flavours of Wilson fermions. The gauge configurations of extent 16 3 32 at β = 5.6 and κ = 0.156, 0.157 and 0.1575 have been generated as part of the SESAM collaboration programme. The present lattice resolutions correspond(More)
Carthamus tinctorius L. (safflower) is an important oilseed crop that is cultivated in several countries. The present study investigates the genetic diversity and population structure of 531 safflower accessions from 43 countries representing all safflower growing regions of the world. Diversity analysis was performed using ten informative EcoRI/MseI(More)
Tea is an important health drink which contributes significantly to the economy of Asian and African countries. India contributes about 29 % of the world’s total tea production where majority of the tea cultivated is Assam type (native to Assam, India). Apart from India, Assam type contributes to the majority of tea grown in tropical regions of Sri Lanka(More)
We use an all-optical trap to confine a strongly attractive two-state mixture of lithium fermions. By measuring the rate of evaporation from the trap, we determine the effective elastic scattering cross section 4pa 2 to show that the magnitude of the scattering length jaj is very large, in agreement with predictions. We show that the mixture is stable(More)
The Northwest Potato Variety Development (NWPVD) Program has released 45 improved potato varieties since 1985. Thirty-four potato varieties, four breeding clones and two advanced selections from NWPVD Program, and six commonly-grown potato varieties were fingerprinted using 32 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers and 12,808 single nucleotide polymorphism(More)
BACKGROUND Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.), an Asteraceae member, yields high quality edible oil rich in unsaturated fatty acids and is resilient to dry conditions. The crop holds tremendous potential for improvement through concerted molecular breeding programs due to the availability of significant genetic and phenotypic diversity. Genomic resources(More)
