  • No Photo Trichoderm - A Potential Bio-control Agent    By: Neelam Geat

    Trichoderma is a good model of biocontrol agent as it is easy to isolate and culture, multiply rapidly on many substrates, act as mycoparasite, strong opportunistic invaders, avirulent plant symbionts, competes for food and site with pathogens, prolific producers of spores, powerful antibiotics, antifungal compounds, secondary metabolites as well as enzymes. These properties make them ecologically very successful. >> Category: Agriculture
  • No Photo miRNA-Based Simple Sequence Repeats Markers for DNA Fingerprinting of Plants    By: Dr. Tapan K Mondal

    MicroRNAs are newly discovered genomic resources that regulate gene expression in many genomes.

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: Sonali Bhawsar - 2015-11-05

Thanks Nasiyha for your appreciation!

As you have asked, toxic substances are chemicals and recalcitrant; they take hundreds of years to transform and thus remain persistant in the environment for long long time and hence their ill effects. Thank you once again.

Article: Microbial Production of Vitamin B12 - Comment by: Sonali Bhawsar - 2015-11-05

Thanks a lot Biki!

Article: Colorful Bacteria - Comment by: Sonali Bhawsar - 2015-11-05

Have you checked with Serratia strains? Their pigments are interesting w.r.t. wax-carbohydrate composition, abundant production @ R. T.; color intensity is dependent on temperature conditions during incubation etc. consider safe handling and other measures before you move to scale up with these strains as i said before.

Brown and orange mushroom can also be explored as novel pigment producers. I hope this will help you. Thank you.

Article: Colorful Bacteria - Comment by: Sonali Bhawsar - 2015-11-05

I hope reviews by Velmurugan (2009); Ahmed et al(2011) Parthiban & Thilagavathi (2012) will be useful to you. If you are assessing new pigment producing strains, do check their safety regarding environment & living components of ecosystem.
Thanks for showing interest in the article. Good luck!

Hello ma'am,
I wanted to know which bacterial and fungal stains could be used for leather coloration? It's part of our final year project

Article: Toxic Fibers and Fabrics - Comment by: ~nasiyha~ - 2015-10-24

Thank you for your time and sharing the knowledge you've been blessed with, it's very noble of you to post such detailed information without wanting to sell a product or for profit. I'll keep you in my duas, and I ask that the CREATOR of all that has ever existed, the CONTROLLER of "all things created" makes your intentions pure, continues to; guide you, blesses you w/ benefial knowledge and that HE grants you the best of success in this life and the next, ameen... (My Huge Thank You!)

Btw have you came across any answers about the ability to "wash-off" the ill/toxic effects of these manmade textiles? Or an approximate amount of time it would take for the materials to loose their negative properties???
