DNA Fingerprinting and Assessment of Genetic Diversity among 22 Cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp] Varieties Grown in Ghana

Benjamin A. Danso, Daniel K. Dzidzienyo, Ruth N. A. Prempeh, Marian D. Quain
Identification of varieties based on only morphological traits is limited by the influence of environment on such morphological traits. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) fingerprinting offers an efficient system of identifying varieties at the DNA level without any environmental interference. This work used 20 Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers to characterise twenty-two cowpea [Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp] varieties for the purposes

Isolation, Identification and Characterization of Gram Negative Bacteria from Popular Street Food (Chotpoti) at Savar Area, Dhaka, Bangladesh

A. H. Happy, M. G. Alam, S. Mahmud, M. A. S. Imran, M. H. Rony, M. A. A. Azim, M. M. Islam, M. K. D. Sarker, P. Akter, G. C. Mondol, T. Hossain, M. M. Rahman, M. M. Islam, A. Roy, S. Das, M. R. Ahmed, M. E. Uddin
Chotpoti is a popular street food in the major areas of Bangladesh. Street foods play an important role in people’s daily food options as well as their regular nutritional requirements are dependent on these foods, as their ever-growing busy schedule takes away the opportunity to eat of homemade food. Due to the expedient availability, these street foods are one of the primary food options for city peoples. The present study was u

Mendel Actually Wants to Say: Genes Are Only One Element of the Hereditary Material

Muying Zhou
The individual comes from a fertilized egg, indicating that the individual’s producer, namely the hereditary material, must be in the egg. “Modern genetics” includes the belief that genes are the hereditary material. Thus, the claim that “synthetic life” was created using a man-made genome has been made. However, molecular biology has proven that genes are only templates for individuals. The template has the controlling product’s

Biometric Estimation of Carbon Storage in Hevea brasiliensis Planted in Different Densities

Rasyidah Mohamad Razar, Mohd Nasaruddin Mohd Aris
Carbon pool can be found in all four spheres of earth and the flux of carbon from one pool to another would result in climate change. An increased awareness to offset release of carbon in the atmosphere is emphasized in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change through Kyoto Protocol. The establishment of rubber forest for the purpose of reducing atmospheric carbon is one of the options to sequ

The Origin of Life Discovered: ΣRNA

Muying Zhou
Since 1992, scientific knowledge has been enough to determine the origin of life: “life originated through RNA”. The truth is that current life world on Earth is just an RNA world, since the protein is created by RNA, then DNA as life’s database is created by RNA along with reverse transcriptase (a protein of RNA making). The two life series on the planet originated through two RNA groups (named ΣRNA ): IΣRNA and IIΣRNA . IΣRNA

The Answer to the “First Question” in Genetics: The Hereditary Material

Muying Zhou
The basis of genetics should be the hereditary material which should be able to produce the individual. DNA (Genes) is ever regarded as the producer of the individual. However, DNA being lack of producing force can not produce the individual. So, this paper’s task is to look for another element, producing force, which along with genes (DNA) forms the hereditary material. And finally the paper

Do You Realize Two Basic Questions in Genetics?

Muying Zhou
There are two basic questions in genetics. The “first question” inquires about the germplasm that is capable of producing an individual. It asks “Who produces the individual?” Preformation, Darwin’s Pangenesis, and Weisman’s Germ-plasm theories are all attempts to answer the “first question”. The “second question” usually arises in sexually reproducing species. Because there are two parents (dad and mom) that form the producer (ge

Classification and Characterization of Landscapes in the Territory of Adilabad District, Telangana, Deccan Region, India

Medagam Thirupathi Reddy, Someswara Rao Pandravada, Natarajan Sivaraj, Venkateswaran Kamala, Neelam Sunil, Nilamani Dikshit
We are in the Anthropocene and recent studies have revealed that conventional land management strategies diminished natural landscapes and created anthropogenic ones. The classification and characterization of landscapes, therefore, provide a mechanism for quantifying anthropogenic changes to the landscape systems in the Anthropocene. This study was aimed at classifying and characterizing land

Cell-Cycle-Associated Amplified Genomic-DNA Fragments (CAGFs) Might Be Involved in Chloroquine Action and Resistance in Plasmodium falciparum

Gao-De Li
As a cheap and safe antimalarial agent, chloroquine (CQ) has been used in the battle against malaria for more than half century. However, the mechanism of CQ action and resistance in Plasmodium falciparum remains elusive. Based on further analysis of our published experimental results, we propose that the mechanism of CQ action and resistance might be closely li

Designing, Optimization and Validation of Tetra Primer ARMS-PCR Protocol for Genotyping Single Nucleotide Polymorphism rs4731702 (C/T) of KLF14 Gene Associated with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: A Study in San Luis, Argentina

Micaela Fernanda Alvarez, Miriam Ester Vasquez Gomez, Susana Siewert
New, quick, and inexpensive methods for genotyping KLF14 gene polymorphism through Tetra Primer ARMS-PCR were developed in the present investigation. Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping needs to be attempted to establish association between the identified SNP with metabolic trait for identification of molecular markers that can be used to identify in
