The destruction of primary vegetation aggrieved by human beings is one of the main reasons of biodiversity loss in the world. The creation of protected areas, on the other hand, is one of major strategies for in situ conservation. However, it is not enough to shun the fragmentation, which avoids the free flow of genes and biota movement, required to the maintenance of species, habitats and ecosystems in a long-term basis. The objective of this work is to examine in which level the good management of protected areas are able to contribute to biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation of communities living around Gorongosa National Park.

Bacterial Leaf Blight caused by the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) limits rice yield in all major rice growing regions of the world, especially in irrigated lowland and rainfed conditions where predisposition factors favour disease development to epidemic proportions. Since bacterial pathogens are difficult to manage, development of host plant resistance is the most effective means of disease management.To combat the problem of resistance breakdown, pyramiding of resistance genes into different cultivars is being carried out. The present book deals with the gene specific marker for detection of BLB resistance genes in rice genotypes.

High ethanol accumulation capacity and high ethanol tolerance are crucial in several industrial applications (Kerr, 2010). Identification of causative genes underlying those polygenic traits have being cumbersome to perform and novel methodologies to facilitate the studies of industrial yeast strains are aspired (Mackay et al., 2009). We have screened 68 different yeast strains in very high gravity fermentations and we have identified a diploid sake strain that produces 18-19% (v/v) ethanol. This strain is able to accumulate nearly 21% (v/v) ethanol when continuous stirred fermentation is performed using YP + 35% glucose. The diploid Sake x BY4742 was sporulated and the meiotic segregants were phenotyped and genotyped on plates containing ethanol and by small scale fermentations. The determination of the genotypes was done by pooled segregant whole-genome sequencing. Applying a Hidden Markov Model approach to map the QTLs we found 8 being linked to maximal ethanol accumulation capacity and 7 QTLs involved in high ethanol tolerance. Reciprocal hemizogosity analysis in two QTLs revealed some causative genes involved in high ethanol accumulation capacity.

Governance of Marine Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation explores governance of the world’s oceans with a focus on the impacts of two inter-connected but historically separate streams of governance: one for fisheries, the other for biodiversity conservation. Chapters, most co-authored by leading experts from both streams, investigate the interaction of these governance streams from ecological, economic, social and legal perspectives, with emphasis on policies, institutions processes, and outcomes on scales from the global to the local community, and with coverage of a range of themes and regions of the world. The book opens with chapters setting the historical context for the two marine governance streams, and framing the book’s exploration of whether, as the streams increasingly interact, there will be merger or collision, convergence or co-evolution. The concluding chapter synthesizes the insights from throughout the book, relative to the questions posed in the opening chapters. It also draws conclusions about future needs and directions in the governance of marine fisheries and biodiversity, vital to the future of the world’s oceans. With cutting edge chapters written by many leading international experts in fisheries management and biodiversity conservation, and edited by three leading figures in this crucially important subject, Governance of Marine Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation is an essential purchase for fisheries scientists, economists, resource managers and policymakers, and all those working in fields of biodiversity conservation, marine ecology, and coastal livelihoods. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where environmental and/or marine studies, conservation, ocean policy and law, biological and life sciences, and fisheries management are studied and taught, should have copies of this most important book.

Single strand conformational polymorphism (SSCP) is a technique which is used to detect point mutation in genes. The purpose was to optimize the condition of SSCP for efficient and sensitive mutation detection in Exon 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. All these Exon were amplified and run on agarose gel to check strong and specific amplification. These samples were then subjected for vertical electrophoresis for SSCP using different conditions of gel concentration, time, temperature and voltage to get maximum separation between single strands. Denaturation was carried out by mixing the samples with denaturant reagents. The length of nucleotide of Exon 4 was much longer than normal, so we amplified the exon 4 into two small parts named as 4a and 4b respectively after its bifurcation. The denaturation reagent consist of 50% 100mM NaOH and 50% Formamide loading buffer, 5μl-10μl sample was loaded in each case. In all the optimized Exons the denaturation was performed at 95°C for 7 minutes in PCR machine. This optimization will prove a valuable help in further study of the Exons of the same gene and other genes for Point Mutation Detection.

Arabitol is a five-carbon polyol, it is produced by osmophilic yeast species. It has been studied extensively, that accumulation of arabitol in cell takes place under stress conditions in yeast and other fungal species suggesting it protects cell from drought and salinity stress.In yeast, arabitol dehydrogenase found responsible for the production of arabitol from ribulose-5-phosphate. All plants synthesize ribulose-5-phosphate via pentose pathway in chloroplasts. The result of this study suggests that this gene could be expressed in crop plants to withstand abiotic stresses.

The baker knows a good deal about his flours and also how they are made, but he knows very little about his yeast and less still about his baking powder. He has been well supplied with literature on the technology and chemistry of flour, but much of the data on his aerating agents has either been aimed over his head or else has been purposely misleading. Aerated bread has been added because of its historical value and because of its possible future. Dry Milk is another recent important addition to baking materials. Yeast, is necessariIy a technical subject, has been treated in as condensed and simple a manner as possible. The author acknowledges his indebtedness to an anonymous friend for the section on the manufacture of yeast. This is the first exact and detailed description of yeast manufacture in English, and is an importarit addition to the literature of chemical technology. Baking powder is a subject on which the bakers and the public have been misinformed. The water has been so badly stirred up by the baking powder controversy...

Agriculture is now showing conspicuous signs of faltering because of a breakdown in the services provided by nature. Industrialised agriculture, in striving for greater levels of productivity, uses inputs such as pesticides and fertilisers to replace natural processes and causes pollution, health hazards and resistance development in pest populations. The role of biodiversity in pest management is a burgeoning area of research and forms of ecologically based pest suppression are important examples of the ecosystem services that can be provided by biodiversity. Moreover, pest suppression can be achieved concurrently with providing other benefits such as pollinator enhancement, natural enemies conservation, dual crop production and even carbon sequestration. In this book we have inventorized a total of 127 arthropod fauna, comprised of 112 insect species under 106 genera, 56 families, 10 orders and 14 species of spider and a species of mite.The biodiversity indices in bhendi or okra (Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench) was not reported earlier and henceforth we hope that the book will stand as a base for further research in the biodiversity of arthropods in bhendi ecosystem.

This book provides readers with new paradigms on the mutation discovery in the post-genome era. The completion of human and other genome sequencing, along with other new technologies, such as mutation analysis and microarray, has dramatically accelerated the progress in positional cloning of genes from mutated models. In 2002, the Mouse Genome Sequencing Consortium stated that “The availability of an annotated mouse genome sequence now provides the most efficient tool yet in the gene hunter's toolkit. One can move directly from genetic mapping to identification of candidate genes, and the experimental process is reduced to PCR amplification and sequencing of exons and other conserved elements in the candidate interval. With this streamlined protocol, it is anticipated that many decades-old mouse mutants will be understood precisely at the DNA level in the near future.” The implication of such a statement should be similar to the identification of mutated genes from human diseases and animal models, when genome sequencing is completed for them. More than five years have passed, but genes in many human diseases and animal models have not yet been identified. In some cases, the identification of the mutated genes has been a bottleneck, because the genetic mechanism holds the key to understand the basis of the diseases. However, an integrative strategy, which is a combination of genetic mapping, genome resources, bioinformatics tools, and high throughput technologies, has been developed and tested. The classic paradigm of positional cloning has evolved with completely new concepts of genomic cloning and protocols. This book describes new concepts of gene discovery in the post-genome era and the use of streamlined protocols to identify genes of interest. This book helps identify not only large insertions/deletions but also single nucleotide mutations or polymorphisms that regulate quantitative trait loci (QTL).

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Medicine - Human Genetics, , language: English, abstract: Congenital heart disease (CHD) is an abnormality in the structure and function of the heart and great vessels caused by embryonic development disorders, it is highly complex and is not fully understood yet. This study performs a computational analysis of the nsSNPs in the GATA4 gene, to identify the possible mutations and propose a modeled structure for the mutant protein that potentially affects its function. The nsSNPs were analyzed using 5 prediction tools: SIFT, Polyphen-2, I-Mutant 3.0, PhD-SNP and Project Hope. The SNPs on 3'UTR and 5'UTR regions were analyzed using PolymRTS and SNP Function Prediction softwares, respectively. Twenty nine nsSNPs were found to be deleterious and damaging by SIFT and 22 nsSNPs by PolyPhen server; 22 nsSNPs were found to be common in both SIFT and PolyPhen server. Also, 6 nsSNPs were observed to be highly deleterious and damaging as per SIFT and PolyPhen server. Moreover, the PolymiRTS results showed 34 SNPs in the 3'UTR region and only one SNP in 5' UTR by SNP Function Prediction to be functionally significant. Hence, we hope our results will provide useful information that needed to help researchers to do further study in heart disease in children especially in our country

The presence of oriented features in images often conveys important information about the scene or the objects contained; the analysis of oriented patterns is an important task in the general framework of image understanding. As in many other applications of computer vision, the general framework for the understanding of oriented features in images can be divided into low- and high-level analysis. In the context of the study of oriented features, low-level analysis includes the detection of oriented features in images; a measure of the local magnitude and orientation of oriented features over the entire region of analysis in the image is called the orientation field. High-level analysis relates to the discovery of patterns in the orientation field, usually by associating the structure perceived in the orientation field with a geometrical model. This book presents an analysis of several important methods for the detection of oriented features in images, and a discussion of the phase portrait method for high-level analysis of orientation fields. In order to illustrate the concepts developed throughout the book, an application is presented of the phase portrait method to computer-aided detection of architectural distortion in mammograms.Table of Contents: Detection of Oriented Features in Images / Analysis of Oriented Patterns Using Phase Portraits / Optimization Techniques / Detection of Sites of Architectural Distortion in Mammograms

Advances in research and development reveal the immense diversity and potential of marine genetic resources. Under international law, no specific regime applies to these complex and paradoxical objects of use. The Law of the Sea Convention sets a framework that is partly inadequate for this new category of resources. The Biodiversity Convention and the Nagoya Protocol only address the genetic resources of national areas. Patents allow their holder to exercise a monopoly on exploiting biotechnological creations to extensive claims, questioning the common nature of biodiversity and related knowledge. They hinder research and the objectives of biodiversity law. The legal and practical rules of physical and functional access vary in geometry. They focus on the valorization of research results, crystallizing conflicts of interest between suppliers and users. Sustainable research and development is essential to the knowledge and protection of marine biodiversity. The qualification of marine genetic resources in common, standard contractual tools, distributed research and development infrastructures, negotiation of an agreement on sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity beyond the limits of national jurisdiction, would To remove these inconsistencies.

Event detection, boundary detection, and faulty sensor detection are important research topics in wireless sensor networks. Finite power supplies and limited communication bandwidth within wireless sensor networks mean applications must use these resources efficiently. With that in mind, this book presents the concept of using minimal neighbor sensors in the detection process. This concept can be used when deploy sensors strategically in building sensor networks. Reliability of small sensors is questionable, especially when the sensors are deployed in harsh environments. This book will explore the ways to improve detection accuracy by incorporating sensor reliability explicitly in the fault-tolerant detection process. An adaptive detection system is also presented for event boundary detention. Finally, a hypothesis testing method is used for faulty sensor detection.

The biodiversity has been particularly investigated in the context of designing efficient programs of monitoring biodiversity and setting out conservation priorities The Global Biodiversity Assessment recommends that such assessment requires a detailed knowledge of species distribution in particular landscapes. India's Biological Diversity Act 2002 aims to promote conservation, sustainable use and equitable sharing of benefits of India's biodiversity resources. In this context, traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) and its implication in the field of ethnobiology is of special focus in view of its grim scenario due to the diverse environmental perturbations. Therefore, specific emphasis should be given to ethno-medicinal plants while setting priorities for biodiversity conservation in India. Etnomedicines, derived from plants, enjoy a respectable position today, especially in the developing countries, where modern health service is limited. Safe, effective and inexpensive indigenous remedies are gaining popularity among the people of both urban and rural areas of India. Moreover, the role of medicinal plants in Human health is mentioned.

Biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation are both important societal goals demanding increasing international attention. While they may seem to be unrelated, the international policy frameworks that guide action to address them make an explicit assumption that conserving biodiversity will help to tackle global poverty. Part of the Conservation Science and Practice Series published with the Zoological Society of London, this book explores the validity of that assumption. The book addresses a number of critical questions: Which aspects of biodiversity are of value to the poor? Does the relationship between biodiversity and poverty differ according to particular ecological conditions? How do different conservation interventions vary in their poverty impacts? How do distributional and institutional issues affect the poverty impacts of interventions? How do broader issues such as climate change and the global economic system affect the biodiversity – poverty relationship at different scales? This volume will be of interest to policy-makers, practitioners and researchers concerned with understanding the potential – and limitations – of integrated approaches to biodiversity conservation and poverty alleviation.

Heroine is synthetic derivative of morphine, a naturally occurring substance extracted from unripe seeds or capsules of Papaver somniferum (poppy plant). The use of heroine and morphine as a recreational drug has reached epidemic proportion, largely because of increased availability. The currently used techniques for the detection of opiate drugs are time consuming, expensive and not amenable to on-site application. This book describes about development of a highly sensitive, fast, reliable, field applicable and cost effective immunoassay/ immunobiosensor for the detection of opiate drugs: morphine and heroin, the most addictive and commonly abused narcotics. Various types of immunoassay are described in this book using enzyme, fluorophore, carbon nanotubes, gold nanoparticles and phage display detection which shows detection limit in the ppb range without the aid of any sophisticated instrument.

Darwin's Origin of Species and Dobzhansky's Genetics and the Origin of Species have been the cornerstones of modern evolutionary and population genetic theory for the past hundred years, but in the twenty-first century, biologists will face graver problems of extinction. In this collection, a team of leading biologists demonstrates why the burgeoning field of conservation biology must continue to rely on the insights of population genetics if we are to preserve the diversity of living species. Technological and theoretical developments throughout the 1990s have allowed for important new insights into how populations have evolved in response to past selection pressures, while providing a broad new understanding of the genetic structure of natural populations. The authors explore these advances and argue for the applicability of new genetic methods in conservation biology. The volume covers such topics as the reasons for extinctions, the best ways to measure biodiversity, and the benefits and drawbacks of policies like captive breeding. Genetics and the Extinction of Species is a rich source of information for biologists and policymakers who want to learn more about the host of tools, theories, and approaches available for conserving biodiversity. In addition to the editors, the contributors to the volume are William Amos, Rebecca Cann, Kathryn Rodriguez-Clark, Leslie Douglas, Leonard Freed, Paul Harvey, Kent Holsinger, Russell Lande, and Helen Steers.

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Cultural Studies - North African Studies, grade: Very good, , course: Social Anthropology with Concentration on Environmental Anthropology, language: English, abstract: The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church, which is believed to be the largest of the five non-Chalcedonian Eastern Churches and is believed as playing an important role in Ethiopian life is a unique church deeply based upon Ethiopian history, social life and ethics. In addition to its religious services, i has a long tradition of conserving biodiversity. Hence, if a traveler sees a patch of indigenous big trees in the northern highlands of Ethiopia, most probably there is an Orthodox Tewahedo Church in the center. Having the main objective of investigating the role of the Orthodox Tewahedo Church in biodiversity conservation, the paper deals with the religious values (principles and actions) of the EOTC that are in favor of biodiversity conservation. In line with, it tries to explore the church values in relation to biodiversity conservation in terms of the sacred and profane (space wise dichotomy).

In order to efficiently utilize the spectrum, the role of spectrum sensing is essential in cognitive radio networks. The transmitter detection based techniques: energy detection, cyclostationary feature detection, and matched filter detection, is most commonly used for the spectrum sensing. The Energy detection technique is implemented in the 2-hop cooperative cognitive radio network. OSTBC is used for transmission of data in the 2-hop network. The Energy detection technique is simplest and gives good results at the higher Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) values. However, at the low SNR values its performance degrades. Moreover, each transmitter detection technique has a SNR threshold, below which it fails to work robustly. This book aims to find the most reliable and accurate spectrum sensing technique in the 2-hop cooperative cognitive radio network. Using Matlab simulations, a comparative analysis of three transmitter detection techniques has been made in terms of higher probability of detection. In order to remove the shortcomings faced by all the three techniques a Fuzzy Combined Logic sensing approach is implemented and compared with Transmitter detection techniques.

Food-borne disease is one of the most widespread problems throughout the world and is mainly caused by pathogenic bacteria. Detection of this microbial pathogen in food is the solution to the prevention and recognition of problems related to health and safety. Conventional and standard bacterial detection methods such as culture and colony counting methods may take up to few days to yield an answer. So in this prospect, researchers and food microbiologists are focusing towards the development and standardization of rapid methods. Recent advances in technology made detection and identification faster, more convenient, more sensitive and specific than conventional assays. The important developments in this area are the use of nucleic acid based assays and immunological methods for the detection of food-borne pathogens. The sensitivity of these methods has been significantly increased by the use of amplification techniques like polymerase chain reaction. Also many sensors were developed for the detection of food-borne pathogens with the goal to overcome problems associated with traditional microbiological detection techniques such as being time and labour intensive.

Biological diversity is a key issue to nature conservation. Biodiversity are very essential for food and nutrition, clothing, building and shelter, fuel and energy, medicine and biological control. All over the world forest resources have been destroying and disappearing day by day due to increasing population, industrialization, urbanization and road construction. Especially, the forest destruction rate is very high in least developing countries.The survival percentage of regenerated tree species is gradually decline along with different development stages. Due to rapid population growth, energy deficit, resource shortage, myopic planning, poor management and lack of motivation on the necessity of biodiversity conservation are the main reasons for the loss of wild biodiversity. Biodiversity is heavily disrupted during the past several decades in Bangladesh. Hill forest is the most important sectors of Bangladesh and composed of a number of tropical ever green and semi-evergreen tree species. Due to over exploitation and excessive human interference, the biodiversity is degraded at an alarming rate.This book help to know present species diversity in hilly area.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2007 in the subject Biology - Micro- and Molecular Biology, grade: magna cum laude, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (Institut für Biotechnologie I, Forschungszentrum Jülich), language: English, abstract: The aim of this work was to limit the intracellular NAD turnover and to increase the intracellular NAD concentration in Escherichia coli in order to construct a strain characterized by higher productivity and improved long-term stability in the reductive whole-cell biotransformation. To this end, first the genes yrfE and yjaD were deleted, which code for the NADH-pyrophosphatases that probably play a part in intracellular NAD degradation. After deletion of these genes, the specific activity of the NADH-pyrophosphatase in the raw extract was reduced by 70%. By overexpressing the genes pncB and nadE from the NAD biosynthesis it was possible to double the intracellular NAD concentration. The joint overexpression of the two genes increased the NAD pool by a factor of seven.A recombinant strain of E. coli for obtaining mannitol from fructose was the reference system for studying whether the mutations in the NAD metabolism influenced the long-term stability of whole-cell transformations. Here, fructose was reduced to mannitol by a mannitol dehydrogenase from Leuconostoc pseudomesenteroides. The cofactor NADH was regenerated by a formate dehydrogenase from Mycobacterium vaccae N10.

Matt Ridley Nature via Nurture: Genes, experience and what makes us human

486.16 руб.
Acclaimed author Matt Ridley's thrilling follow-up to his bestseller Genome. Armed with the extraordinary new discoveries about our genes, Ridley turns his attention to the nature versus nurture debate to bring the first popular account of the roots of human behaviour.What makes us who we are?In February 2001 it was announced that the genome contains not 100,000 genes as originally expected but only 30,000. This startling revision led some scientists to conclude that there are simply not enough human genes to account for all the different ways people behave: we must be made by nurture, not nature.Matt Ridley argues that the emerging truth is far more interesting than this myth. Nurture depends on genes, too, and genes need nurture. Genes not only predetermine the broad structure of the brain; they also absorb formative experiences, react to social cues and even run memory. They are consequences as well as causes of the will.Published fifty years after the discovery of the double helix of DNA, Nature via Nurture chronicles a new revolution in our understanding of genes. Ridley recounts the hundred years' war between the partisans of nature and nurture to explain how this paradoxical creature, the human being, can be simultaneously free-willed and motivated by instinct and culture. Nature via Nurture is an enthralling, up-to-the-minute account of how genes build brains to absorb experience.Note that it has not been possible to include the same picture content that appeared in the original print version.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2013 in the subject Biology - Botany, , course: Doctor of Philosophy, language: English, abstract: Forests are an important natural 'brake' on climate change sequester and store more carbon than any other terrestrial ecosystem. The main carbon pools in forest ecosystems are the living biomass of trees and understorey vegetation and the dead mass of litter, woody debris and soil organic matter. The carbon stored in the aboveground living biomass of trees is typically the largest pool. Thus, estimating aboveground forest biomass carbon is the most critical step in quantifying carbon stocks and fluxes from forests. India is a large developing country known for its diverse forest ecosystems and is also a mega-biodiversity country. Forest ecosystems in India are critical for biodiversity, watershed protection, and livelihoods of indigenous and rural communities. The National Communication of the Government of India to the UNFCC has reported that the forest sector is a marginal source of CO2 emissions. India has formulated and implemented a number of policies and programmes aimed at forest and biodiversity conservation, afforestation and reforestation. All forest policies and programmes have implications for carbon sink and forest management. A number of studies highlighting carbon stocks of India forests at macrolevel utilizing Remote Sensing & Geographic Information System techniques have gained momentum. However, Carbon st...

Celia Lowe Wild Profusion. Biodiversity Conservation in an Indonesian Archipelago

3814 руб.
Wild Profusion tells the fascinating story of biodiversity conservation in Indonesia in the decade culminating in the great fires of 1997-98--a time when the country's environment became a point of concern for social and environmental activists, scientists, and the many fishermen and farmers nationwide who suffered from degraded environments and faced accusations that they were destroying nature. Celia Lowe argues that biodiversity, in 1990s Indonesia, implied a particular convergence of nature, nation, science, and identity that made Indonesians' mapping of the concept distinct within transnational practices of nature conservation at the time. Lowe recounts the efforts of Indonesian biologists to document the species of the Togean Islands, to "develop" Togean people, and to turn this archipelago off the coast of Sulawesi into a national park. Indonesian scientists aspired to a conservation biology that was both internationally recognizable and politically effective in the Indonesian context. Simultaneously, Lowe describes the experiences of Togean Sama people who had their own understandings of nature and nation. To place Sama and scientist into the same conceptual frame, Lowe studies Sama ideas in the context of transnational thought rather than local knowledge. In tracking the practice of conservation biology in a postcolonial setting, Wild Profusion explores what in nature can count as important and for whom.

5608.03 руб.
This book presents an algorithm for the detection of an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal in a cognitive radio context by means of a joint and iterative channel and noise estimation technique. Based on the minimum mean square criterion, it performs an accurate detection of a user in a frequency band, by achieving a quasi-optimal channel and noise variance estimation if the signal is present, and by estimating the noise level in the band if the signal is absent. Organized into three chapters, the first chapter provides the background against which the system model is presented, as well as some basics concerning the channel statistics and the transmission of an OFDM signal over a multipath channel. In Chapter 2, the proposed iterative algorithm for the noise variance and the channel estimation is detailed, and in Chapter 3, an application of the algorithm for the free-band detection is proposed. In both Chapters 2 and 3, the principle of the algorithm is presented in a simple way, and more elaborate developments are also provided. The different assumptions and assertions in the developments and the performance of the proposed method are validated through simulations, and compared to methods of the scientific literature

Two yeast isolates, one from teff dough and another from tella, out of total fifty isolates were screened and identified through morphological and physiological tests and found Saccharamyces species. They were compared with the commercial baker’s yeast, in terms of biomass production and leavening capacity. Their biomass was compared with respect to molasses concentration, pH, incubation temperature and period. All isolates showed maximum yield at 8% w/v molasses concentration. The three isolates differed in their biomass yield at various pHs, whereas all isolates gave highest biomass at thirty degree centigrade. Addition of supplements to the molasses medium showed 1.5- 2 fold increase in biomass. Concerning leavening action, the commercial isolate was superior. Generally, the commercial yeast was better in terms of biomass yield, whereas dough isolate was superior with respect to leavening action. Tella isolate was still competent. Further studies on molecular properties of these yeasts could improve their performance in biomass propagation and leavening action. This book assesses all these and is useful for academicians, researchers, yeast production and bakery industries.

This is due to the fact that the isolation time for food products is not cost-effective and even in most of the cases, the precision in the practical techniques like the bacterial cultivation and other techniques suffer from operator errors or the errors of the mixtures used. Staphylococcus spp., is a common bacteria in cattle mastitis. Detection of the low number of bacteria requires a sensitive method. We used Multiplex Polymerase Chain Reaction (M-PCR) assay to detect the genes encoding SEA, SEB, SEC toxins .

Haemophilia A is a X linked genetic disorder characterized by the deficiency or absence of the Factor VIII protein in blood plasma that is responsible for clotting. Usually the affected son has inherited the mutant gene from his carrier mother but about 30% of cases arise from a spontaneous mutation, and there is no family history of haemophilia A. Carrier detection and pre-natal diagnosis are important aspects of care in haemophilia A and are based on intragenic or extragenic polymorphism in FVIII gene or by detection of causative mutation in potential carriers or in unborn male at risk. The most common type of mutation in severe haemophilia A is an inversion in 22-intron of FVIII gene, which accounts for 45% cases. The molecular characterization of mutations in haemophilia A is carried out by using PCR-RFLP. In India the burden of haemophilia A is heavy because of poor social support and expensive therapeutic measures. In these circumstances, carrier detection and prenatal diagnosis in affected families can significantly help in reducing the incidence. In the present study intragenic polymorphic marker HindIII was used for carrier detection in Indian population.

Presents a comprehensive and interdisciplinary review of the major cutting-edge technology research areas—especially those on new materials and methods as well as advanced structures and properties—for various sensor and detection devices The development of sensors and detectors at macroscopic or nanometric scale is the driving force stimulating research in sensing materials and technology for accurate detection in solid, liquid, or gas phases; contact or non-contact configurations; or multiple sensing. The emphasis on reduced-scale detection techniques requires the use of new materials and methods. These techniques offer appealing perspectives given by spin crossover organic, inorganic, and composite materials that could be unique for sensor fabrication. The influence of the length, composition, and conformation structure of materials on their properties, and the possibility of adjusting sensing properties by doping or adding the side-groups, are indicative of the starting point of multifarious sensing. The role of intermolecular interactions, polymer and ordered phase formation, as well as behavior under pressure and magnetic and electric fields are also important facts for processing ultra-sensing materials. The 15 chapters written by senior researchers in Advanced Sensor and Detection Materials cover all these subjects and key features under three foci: 1) principals and perspectives, 2) new materials and methods, and 3) advanced structures and properties for various sensor devices.

Most existent protocols, applications and services for mobile Adhoc networks (MANETs) assume a cooperative and friendly network environment and do not accommodate security. In MANETs, intrusion prevention (IPS) and intrusion detection (IDS) techniques need to complement each other to guarantee a highly secure environment. The IPS and IDS play different roles in different states of the network. Intrusion prevention measures, such as encryption and authentication, are more useful in preventing outside attacks. Once the node is compromised, intrusion prevention measures will have a little effect in protecting the network. Therefore, an intrusion detection system is serving as the second line of defense in Adhoc network. This Book used the incremental approach to designing the detection engine for Adhoc network environments.

Examines effects of the environmental distribution of antimicrobial resistance genes on human health and the ecosystem Resistance genes are everywhere in nature—in pathogens, commensals, and environmental microorganisms. This contributed work shows how the environment plays a pivotal role in the development of antimicrobial resistance traits in bacteria and the distribution of resistant microbial species, resistant genetic material, and antibiotic compounds. Readers will discover the impact of the distribution in the environment of antimicrobial resistance genes and antibiotics on both the ecosystem and human and animal health. Antimicrobial Resistance in the Environment is divided into four parts: Part I, Sources, including ecological and clinical consequences of antibiotic resistance by environmental microbes Part II, Fate, including strategies to assess and minimize the biological risk of antibiotic resistance in the environment Part III, Antimicrobial Substances and Resistance, including antibiotics in the aquatic environment Part IV, Effects and Risks, including the effect of antimicrobials used for non-human purposes on human health Recognizing the intricate links among overlapping complex systems, this book examines antimicrobial resistance using a comprehensive ecosystem approach. Moreover, the book's multidisciplinary framework applies principles of microbiology, environmental toxicology, and chemistry to assess the human and ecological risks associated with exposure to antibiotics or antibiotic resistance genes that are environmental contaminants. Each chapter has been written by one or more leading researchers in such fields as microbiology, environmental science, ecology, and toxicology. Comprehensive reference lists at the end of all chapters serve as a gateway to the primary research in the field. Presenting and analyzing the latest findings in a field of growing importance to human and environmental health, this text offers readers new insights into the role of the environment in antimicrobial resistance development, the dissemination of antimicrobial resistant genetic elements, and the transport of antibiotic resistance genes and antibiotics.
