Introduction
Working as a Research Associate at United Arab Emirates University. I am currently working on Characterization of Growth of Date Palm Seeds/Seedlings Maintained at Micro Gravity in Outer Space (ISS). I previously worked on a project grant titled ‘Isolation and characterization of STEC pathogen producing E.coli from fecal samples of healthy sheep, goats, camel and cattle in the UAE.

Genetic improvement in coconut relies on exploiting the vast existing diversity among coconut accessions. Robust molecular markers are a pre-requisite for efficient characterization of genetic diversity. Microsatellites or simple sequence repeats (SSRs), mined from expressed sequence tags (ESTs), constitute an important resource for analysis of gen...

Background: Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) is a major source of food-borne illness around the world. E. coli O157 has been widely reported as the most common STEC serogroup and has emerged as an important enteric pathogen. Cattle, in particular have been identified as a major E. coli O157:H7 reservoir of human infections; however, t...

S higa toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) are E. coli strains, which are associated with major food illness around the world. E. coli O157 has been widely reported as the most common STEC serogroup, which have emerged as important enteric pathogen since their identification. These bacterial strains are colonized in animals and are excreted thr...
Article
Arecanut cultivars are generally tall, which is a major constraint in arecanut cultivation. High yielding tall cultivars have been crossed with natural dwarf mutant, Hirehalli Dwarf (HD) and hybrids have been developed and released for commercial cultivation. It is very difficult to distinguish selfed progenies of the female mother palm in the nurs...

Gibberellins (GAs) are plant hormones that are essential for many developmental processes in plants, including seed germination, stem elongation, leaf expansion, trichome development, pollen maturation and the induction of flowering. Gibberellin 2-oxidase (GA2-ox) regulates plant growth by inactivating endogenous bioactive GAs through 2β-hydroxylat...

Gibberellins (GAs) are plant hormones that are essential for many developmental processes in plants, including seed germination, stem elongation, leaf expansion, trichome development, pollen maturation and the induction of flowering. GA functions by inducing degradation of the plant growth repressor DELLA proteins. GID1 (GA-INSENSITIVE DWARF1) has...

Coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) is one of the important palms grown both as a homestead and plantation crop in countries and most island territories of tropical regions. Different DNA-based marker systems have been utilized to assess the extent of genetic diversity in coconut. Advances in genomics research have resulted in the development of novel gene...

Understanding of mating system of a plant species has fundamental importance for formulation of genetic conservation strategies and breeding programmes. The pattern of gene flow, via pollen, has a profound influence on the genetic structure within a population. Various genetic parameters, obtained from molecular marker studies, can be used to asses...

Genetic diversity is necessary to sustain the productivity of a crop as it furnishes new genes for yield, adaptation, disease resistance, high value uses and characters. Molecular characterization is considered to be the most acceptable tool for the study of genetic diversity in the coconut and assessment by genetic marker is crucial for the effici...

The coconut palm is versatile in its adaptability to a wide range of soil and climatic conditions. A long history of its cultivation has resulted in development of many ecotypes, which are adapted to various agro-eco factors prevalent in a particular region. These ecotypes usually are known by the location where they are grown. It is important to e...
