The algal symbiont of Azolla - Anabaena azollae (AS-DS) and free-living A.variabilis (SAo) colonized and immobilized well in all the solid matrices such as hollow fibre, polyurethane foam, cotton and silk cotton. Biomass production was more under immobilized state than under free-living state. Heterocyst frequency, nitrogen fixing activity and ammonia(More)
Following inoculation with Azorhizobium caulinodans ORS571 (pXLGD4), lateral root development of rice and colonization of lateral root cracks by bacteria were shown to be stimulated by the flavonoid naringenin. Rice seedlings growing aseptically in the presence of naringenin were inoculated with ORS571 (pXLGD4), carrying the lacZ reporter gene. By(More)
Face recognition is an interesting and a challenging problem that has been widely studied in the field of pattern recognition and computer vision. It has many applications such as biometric authentication, video surveillance, and others. In the past decade, several methods for face recognition were proposed. However, these methods suffer from pose and(More)
Isolation of cyanobacteria was attempted from herbicide applied rice soils. The predominant genera were Westiellopsis followed by Anabaena, Nostoc and Oscillatoria. The herbicide tolerance was further tested by growing the cyanobacterial cultures in BG-11 medium supplemented with varying concentrations of the commonly used rice herbicide, viz butachlor(More)
The Methylobacterium sp. strain NPFM-SB3, isolated from Sesbania rostrata stem nodules possessed nitrogenase activity and nodA genes. Pure culture of NPFM-SB3 strain produced indole-3-acetic acid, cytokinins and on inoculation to rice plants resulted in numerous lateral roots. Inoculation of synthetic auxins 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid, naphthalene(More)
Endophytic colonization in rice was induced using rhizobia. Dehusked seeds of rice hybrid, CORH2, were used as explants for induction of calli. MS medium was modified with 2,4-D (2.5 mg l−1) and kinetin (0.2 mg l−1) for callus induction. Well-developed calli were inoculated with Azorhizobium caulinodans strains ORS 571 and AA-SK-5 by means of imbibition.(More)
Anabaena azollae (AS-DS), isolated from Azolla filiculoides and grown in nitrogen-free medium, was immobilized in 5-mm-cube polyvinyl foam pieces and incorporated into a photobioreactor system for the production of NH3. NH3 was produced continuously and in significant amounts. Benlate (methyl-1-butyl-carbamoyl)-2-benzimidazole carbamate at 5 ppm and(More)
In the past, several automatic video summarization systems had been proposed to generate video summary. However, a generic video summary that is generated based only on audio, visual and textual saliencies will not satisfy every user. This paper proposes a novel system for generating semantically meaningful personalized video summaries, which are tailored(More)
DNA amplification fingerprinting (DAF) of 17 cyanobacterial isolates belonging to symbiotic and free-living forms of 6 different genera was done. The dendrogram analysis of 17 cyanobacterial cultures revealed three major clusters. All Westiellopsis cultures formed the first major cluster and their nucleotide relatedness ranged between 71-93%. In the second(More)
