Identification of Mineral Deficiency in Rice Crop based on SVM in Approach of K-Means & Fuzzy C-Means Clustering

Abstract To setup a quick, error free and feasible method for diagnosing rice crop nutrition is very necessary for nutritional management. In this paper the support vector machine in approach of K-Means and Fuzzy C-Means clustering is used to identify mineral deficient leaf of Rice Crop. The images are collected from the database of International […]


Abstract The experiment was conducted for development and quality evaluation of instant halva powder mix from sweet potatoes. Sweet potato was dried at 700C for 6-7 hours to gate flour after grading of sweet potato slices. Two methods were used for optimization of sweet potatoes flour to gate a desired quality of flour. The present […]

Extraction, Purification and Characterization of Bromelain from Pineapple and In Silico Annotation of the Protein

Abstract Bromelain which is one of the commercially important enzyme is an extract of pine apple (Ananas comosus) which is a member of bromelieace family. This particular study was performed to estimate the agglomeration of the enzyme bromelain from different parts of pineapple. The proteolytic enzyme was extracted using methanol, ethanol and water. The crude […]

Detection of Cryptosporidium Parvum in HIV/AIDS Sero-Positive Patients in Correlation with CD4 Count in Raichur

Abstract HIV infected patients are susceptible to a variety of common and opportunistic infections due to progressive decline in their immunity status. Cryptosporidiosis that causes intestinal infections in immuno-compromised patients and most frequently encountered. Due to higher incidence of HIV/AIDS patients in the area, Raichur district of Karnataka, it is very important to detect Cryptosporidiosis […]

Isolation and Identification of Hydrocarbon Degrading Bacteria and Transformation of the Gene Responsible into Sensitive Bacteria

Abstract Environmental pollution due to petroleum oil spillage is a major problem of the day. Bioremediation is an efficient method in oil spill treatment. Bacteria that are capable of degrading complex hydrocarbons into their simplest forms that can be degradable are used in Bioremediation protocol. In the present study, soil contaminated with petroleum was collected […]

Exact and Approximate Repeats in DNA Sequences using Suffix Array and Divide & Conquer

Abstract Microsatellites or Simple Sequence Repeats are short motifs, for the most part 2-8 base pairs long that are repeated numerous times in genomic DNA. Here, motifs are short, repeating patterns in DNA that have an organic capacity. These SSRs are responsible for sequence-binding locations for proteins like Transcription factor. Such groupings are extremely normal […]
