Computational biology or bioinformatics has its roots in the dawn of genomic revolution when research activities were started to sequence the genome of various organisms. Refinement in sequencing technologies and potential of genomic research resulted in meteoric growth of biological information such as sequences of DNA, RNA and protein requiring databases for efficient storage, management and retrieval of the biological information. Also, computational algorithms for analysis of these colossal data became a vital aspect of biological sciences.

Rice recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of Japonica x Indica cross were grown in irrigated conditions for identification of quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for panicle associated traits. One hundred twenty one RIL lines were evaluated in the field environment with two replications. A total of one hundred twenty two SSR markers were used for polymorphism out of forty markers that showed parental polymorphism. Forty SSR markers were used to construct the genetic linkage map by employing single marker analysis.

Keywords:

In present work, chemometric-assisted UV spectrophotometric and RP-HPLC methods weredeveloped for the simultaneous estimation of caffeine (CAF) and Sodium benzoate (SB) in their combined pharmaceutical dosage form. The two chemometric methods i.e. principle component regression (PCR) and partial least square regression (PLS) were successfully applied to quantify each drug in mixture using UV absorption spectra in range of 220 – 280 nm at Δλ of 1 nm.

Keywords:

A sensitive, accurate, precise and stability indicating high-performance thin layer chromatographic assay method for analysis of Medroxyprogestrone acetate (MPA) in both bulk drug and formulation was developed and validated. The method employed HTLC aluminium plates precoated with silica gel 60F-254 as the stationary phase. The solvent system consisted of Toluene: ethyl acetate: ammonia solution (80:20:0.1 %v/ v). This system was found to give compact spots for MPA (Rf value 0.32±0.02).

The primary objective of present study was to explore the hepatoprotective activity of Nymphaea nouchali flower extract against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced liver necrosis. Nymphaea nouchali flowers were extracted with organic solvents like ethanol and n-hexane. These extracts were subjected to phytochemical studies. After the confirmation of flavonoids in the extracts, they were tested for in-vivo hepatoprotective activity.
