The preponderance of helminth contagions is constrained to tropical regions and can cause massive vulnerability to malnutrition, anemia, pneumonia, and eosinophilia. Many human parasitic diseases cause severe illness in endemic populations. The helminths transmitting through the gastro-intestinal tract may develop resistance to anthelmintic drugs....
Chapter
In recent years, the novel use of synthetic pesticides for agricultural applications has risen dramatically due to the limitations of conventional agricultural technology. In addition, consumer concerns have also increased due to these pesticides’ plant, soil, and environmental toxicity. Innovative processes are urgently required to overcome such c...
Chapter
Over recent decades, the agricultural research sector has paid attention to sustainable agriculture advancement through effective insect pest management and better crop protection strategies. The nanotechnology-based inventions have also made a solid track for agricultural modernization. The recent nanotechnology-derived nanoemulsions have received...

Cumene is an aromatic hydrocarbon, most important biofuel precursor, and demands 20% for benzene production and most useful in refined fuels and crude oil production. The present study is intended to identify such biofuel precursors from the plant resources. The selected plant Celosia polygonoids was subjected to the spectroscopical analysis like U...
Article
The environmental and agricultural systems are prone to drastic effects due to water or drought stress, which is a major problem worldwide. It causes significant morphological, physiological, and molecular alteration of plant productivity. There are several studies demonstrated the Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi symbiosis with plant root to helping t...
Article
In the recent decade, tissue engineering has achieved noteworthy progress in artificial skin preparation. The present study is intended to harvest 2D skin from Bombyx mori cocoons and collagen type I with chicken endothelial cell culture for alleviating skin diseases like cancer. The Artificial 2D Skin is fabricated by seeding the endothelial cell,...
Article
The study evaluates the antioxidant, antibacterial and anticancer activities of different extracts of Menthapiperitaleaves against the MCF-7 cell line. The leaves of Menthapiperitawere extracted with aqueous, ethyl acetate, and chloroform. These extracts were subjected to qualitative phytochemical screening, antibacterial activity, cytotoxic activi...
Chapter
Methanogenic archaea are an environmentally enthralling proposed candidate. It has created an innovative thrust in the research world. In recent times, methanogens have been a striking paradigm and significant present-day representatives among the Archael kingdom. It has unique physical, ecological attributes with microbiological credits, which con...
Article
Industrial and textile dyes are the major source of water pollutants in the Coimbatore Districts of Tamil Nadu, India. The highly stable organic dyes from these industries are being discharged untreated into neighboring rivers, lakes, and ponds. Thus, the present study mainly focused on the preparation of Bimetal Nanocomposite (Ag-Sn) through Free-...
Chapter
Agriculture is the largest food-producing sector. The productivity of agriculture depends on climate change, nature of soil, and cultivation type. Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are agriculturally important fungi that produce glomalin protein. The hyphae of AMF release glomalin in soil and mycorrhizal roots. The two fractions are easily extract...
Article
Curcumin is an active compound extracted from the rhizomes of Curcuma longa L. (Turmeric). It possesses a di phenolic structure and there are three important fractions of curcumin namely curcumin, mono-desmethoxycurcumin and bis-desmethoxycurcumin. Curcumin is having high medicinal value. It is widely in Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani medicine formulat...
Chapter
The aim of the present study is to assess the impact of microbial bioinoculants application on turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) plant productivity under nursery conditions. The understanding of the growth performances of turmeric plants inoculated with microbial bioinoculants under nursery conditions is a key to improve crop production further in field....

The study comprised of 60 Candida spp., 50 isolates from HIV and TB positive individuals (immunocompromised) and 10 isolates from non-HIV and -TB patients (immunocompetent). Among the 60 Candidal isolates, 83.3% were identified as C. albicans, 11.6% as C. glabrata and rest 5% as C. krusei. There is no study in production pattern of extracellular en...

In the present study, the effort has been taken to analyze the effects caused by agrochemicals if its recommended dose is changed. Obviously, we know that alternative to agrochemicals is biofertilizers. However, it is indeed necessary to explain how far the biofertilizer plays beneficial role in crop production and regaining the soil fertility. Thu...

Abstract: Mycorrhizal status of rice under upland conditions was studied using potted seedlings. Percentage of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) root colonization varied between 17.35% and 37.18% over an age series of 7 to 70 days old rice plants. AMF root colonization was increased up to 35–42 days, beyond which the root colonization steadily dec...
