  • False Smut of Rice: An Emerging Threat ( 462 reads)   

    Rice being the staple crop for much of the world population including India, diseases diminishing its yield draw attention. False smut disease of rice is emerging as a new threat to its yield and inflicts high yielding varieties. The article details the economic loss, pathogen, disease symptoms etc. related to this disease. - Category: Agriculture
  • TALENs: A Reliable Genome Editing Tool ( 423 reads)   

    The transformation from randome mutagenesis approach to efficient and specific gene targeting has been enabled by use of engineered nucleases. The article talks about its mechanism, principle and application. Further, TALENs classifies high for reliability due to its site specificity and low off target effects. - Category: Biotech Research
  • Diacetylphloroglucinol Producing Rhizobacteria in Plant Defense ( 1768 reads)   

    This article focuses on biological control of soil borne plant pathogens by antibiotic producing Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR). The antibiotic discussed here is 2, 4 diacetylphloroglucinol (2,4DAPG). The molecular biology of DAPG as well as the impediments in its successful use is further elaborated upon. - Category: Agriculture
  • Genome Engineering ( 2104 reads)   

    This article focuses on new age techniques for editing the genome in vivo which require targeting DNA breaks to defined location followed by either Non homologous end joining or homologous recombination. The origin and basis of TALENs is discussed. - Category: Biotech Research
  • Engineering Bt Toxins for Effective Insect Control ( 3877 reads)   

    This article focuses on biology and genetic engineering of the most successful biopesticide Bacillus thuringiensis and how biotechnological tools have helped in improving upon the Bt toxin's efficiency as well as widening the host spectrum. Few strategies to cope with resistance development in insects are also dealt with. - Category: Biotech Research
