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)
In rice, nodule like structures were formed by inoculation of A. caulinodans combined with growth regulators and enzymes. Among the treatments, combination of cell wall degrading enzyme mixture and NAA with A. caulinodans induced more number of paranodules in rice. Total nitrogen content also increased in treated plants compared to uninoculated control.
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)
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)
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)
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(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)
Although in the past, several automatic video summarization systems had been proposed to generate video summary, a generic summary based only on low-level features will not satisfy every user. As users' needs or preferences for the summary vastly differ for the same video, a unique personalized and customized video summarization system becomes an urgent(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)
