Cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) is a major fiber crop that is grown worldwide; it faces extensive damage from sap-sucking insects, including aphids and whiteflies. Genome-wide transcriptome analysis was performed to understand the molecular details of interaction between Gossypium hirsutum L. and sap-sucking pests, namely Aphis gossypii (Aphid) and Bemisia(More)
High-throughput genotyping arrays provide a standardized resource for plant breeding communities that are useful for a breadth of applications including high-density genetic mapping, genome-wide association studies (GWAS), genomic selection (GS), complex trait dissection, and studying patterns of genomic diversity among cultivars and wild accessions. We(More)
Four microsatellite-enriched genomic libraries for CA(15), GA(15), AAG(8) and ATG(8) repeats and transcriptome sequences of five cDNA libraries of Gossypium herbaceum were explored to develop simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. A total of 428 unique clones from repeat enriched genomic libraries were mined for 584 genomic SSRs (gSSRs). In addition, 99,780(More)
BACKGROUND Formation of plant root hairs originating from epidermal cells involves selection of a polar initiation site and production of an initial hair bulge which requires local cell wall loosening. In Arabidopsis the polar initiation site is located towards the basal end of epidermal cells. However little is currently understood about the mechanism for(More)
Retinoblastoma usually manifests before five years of age. Retinoblastoma in an adult is extremely rare. Twenty-three cases of retinoblastoma in adults 20 years or older have been reported in world literature. We report a case of adult onset retinoblastoma in a 29-year-old female. Our patient had unilateral endophytic retinoblastoma with vitreous seeds and(More)
PURPOSE To report two cases of a retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) tear after intravitreal bevacizumab injection for exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD). DESIGN Observational case series. METHODS Two patients presented with occult choroidal neovascularization secondary to AMD. Both patients received intravitreal bevacizumab injections. (More)
The biosecurity risks from many plant-parasitic nematode (PPN) species are poorly known and remain a major challenge for identifying potentially invasive species. A self organising map (SOM) was used to prioritise biosecurity risks from PPN to the whole of continental Australia as well as each of the states and the Northern Territory separately. The SOM(More)
Using natural processes as inspiration, the present study demonstrates a positive correlation between zinc metal tolerance ability of a soil fungus and its potential for the synthesis of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles. A total of 19 fungal cultures were isolated from the rhizospheric soils of plants naturally growing at a zinc mine area in India and(More)
Here we report the genome sequence of a plant-growth-promoting rhizobacterium, Pseudomonas putida strain MTCC5279. The length of the draft genome sequence is approximately 5.2 Mb, with a GC content of 62.5%. The draft genome sequence reveals a number of genes whose products are possibly involved in plant growth promotion and abiotic stress tolerance.
The most common characteristics of diverse age-related neurodegenerative diseases are aggregation and accumulation of the misfolded protein in the brain. Alzheimer׳s disease (AD) is one of these protein conformational diseases. Extracellular accumulation of amyloid β (Aβ) is one the neuropathological hallmarks of Alzheimer disease. Various studies have(More)
