  • Genome Sequence of Potato Reveals Mechanism of Tuberization and Disease Resistance ( 1177 reads)   

    The devastating disease of late-blight in potato has created havoc in history. However, the disease still prevails among the potato growing region of world and was difficult to be curtailed due to neopolyploidy nature and vegetative propagation of the crop. With decoding of the potato genome, understanding the molecular basis of the disease infestation as well as exploitation of biochemical pathways leading to tuberization will be accelerated for its varietal improvement. - Category: Biotech Research
  • Genomic Approaches to Impart Extended Shelf-life in Tomato ( 1156 reads)   

    Enhancing shelf-life in tomato has been a long drawn effort among crop biologists. Though, moderate success has been accomplished in delaying ripening in tomato, it never met the market benchmark. Recently, Uluisik et al., in UK, through their path-breaking discovery, accomplished delayed ripening in tomato without compromising the marketable quality. This paper describes the mechanism and strategy used for developing delayed ripening tomato. - Category: Biotech Research
  • Carrot Genome Provides Insights into Root Accumulation of Carotenoid ( 1093 reads)   

    It will inform the readers about genome sequencing of carrot and its significance in crop breeding strategies. Also, it describes about the regulatory gene network, disease resistance genes and the enigmatic pathway of carotenoid accumulation in carrot. - Category: Biotech Research
  • Chilli Pepper Genome Provides Insight Into Organoleptic Sensation ( 4544 reads)   

    Recent structural genomics of Chilli suggests the mechanism of pungency in worlds hottest chilli variety Bhut Jolokia. - Category: Agriculture
  • Genome Sequence of Cucumber Reveals Mechanism of Monoecy ( 3159 reads)   

    Cucumber Genome has been decoded by a hybrid approach of genome sequencing. Subsequently, resequencing of 115 cultivars across the globe revealed the mechanism of evolution, absence of whole genome duplication, formation of special organs and mechanism of sexual dimorphism in this important crop of cucurbitaceae family. - Category: Biotech Research
