How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Ankita is a doctoral student in plant biology at the University of Georgia (UGA ’22). Her research focusses on root hair phenotyping. She is studying the response of root hairs to nutrient stress by the phenotyping of traits which quantify shape of root hairs. Apart from research, she is passionate about science communication & outreach. She is a content creator for the ‘Athens Science Observer' (ASO @UGA) & serves on the panel of ‘Women in Science’ (WiSci @UGA) as the outreach coordinator.
Trichomes show 47 morphological phenotypes, while literature reports only two root hair phenotypes in all plants. However, could hair-like structures exist below-ground in a similar wide range of morphologies like trichomes? Genetic mutants and root hair stress phenotypes point to the possibility of uncharacterized morphological variation existing...
The unique ornamental features and extreme sexual traits of Peacock have always intrigued scientists and naturalists for centuries. However, the genomic basis of these phenotypes are yet unknown. Here, we report the first genome sequence and comparative analysis of peacock with the high quality genomes of chicken, turkey, duck, flycatcher and zebra...
Root hairs are lateral extensions of epidermal cells and constitute up to 60% of the root surface. If grown in abiotic stress conditions, such as phosphorous (P) and nitrogen (N) deficiency, root hairs show distinctive phenotypes that are linked to improved nutrient acquisition. These phenotypes are typically observed and evaluated after 1-2 weeks...
The unique ornamental features and extreme sexual traits of Peacock have always intrigued the scientists. However, the genomic evidence to explain its phenotype are yet unknown. Thus, we report the first genome sequence and comparative analysis of peacock with the available high-quality genomes of chicken, turkey, duck, flycatcher and zebra finch....
The experimental methods for the prediction of molecular toxicity are tedious and time-consuming tasks. Thus, the computational approaches could be used to develop alternative methods for toxicity prediction. We have developed a tool for the prediction of molecular toxicity along with the aqueous solubility and permeability of any molecule/metaboli...
(A) PCA plot using fingerprints as input features, (B) observation of explained variance from PC-1 to PC-10, (C) PCA plot using descriptors as input features, and (D) observation of explained variance from PC-1 to PC-10.
A plethora of chemical reactions is redox driven processes. The conversion of toxic and highly soluble U(VI) complexes to nontoxic and insoluble U(IV) form are carried out through proton coupled electron transfer by iron containing cytochromes and mineral surfaces such as machinawite. This redox process takes place through the formation of U(V) spe...
The overall goal of the proposed research is to quantitatively characterize the response of early root hairs to nutrient stress in Phaseolus vulgaris (L88-57).
