Fungal co-infection as an aggravated challenge for treatment of Tuberculosis
Tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious disease caused by bacteria called Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), a serious problem for the whole world. TB is one of the top 10 causes of deaths worldwide.
Mutation in Coronavirus have made it more contagious
Mutation is a change in a DNA sequence. Mutations can result from DNA copying mistakes made during cell division, exposure to ionizing radiation, exposure to chemicals called mutagens, or infection by viruses. Viruses are continuously changing as a result of genetic selection. They undergo subtle genetic changes through mutation and major genetic changes through recombination. Mutation occurs when an error is incorporated in the viral genome. Recombination occurs when coinfecting viruses exchange genetic information, creating a novel virus.-Medical Microbiology
Storage and distribution of coronavirus Vaccines at Subzero Temperatures Will Be Hard in India
The extreme low temperature of minus 70 degrees Celsius required for storing a potential COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer poses a big challenge for its delivery in a developing nation like India, especially in its smaller towns and rural areas where maintaining such cold chain facilities would be very difficult, AIIMS Director- Dr Randeep Guleria
Plant Micro RNAs - Sustainable Alternatives for Crop Protection
The growth and productivity of crops is highly dependent on several environmental stresses such as soil pH and texture, climate change leading to high rainfall or drought, temperature extremities, insects, several pests and pathogens.
How Does Indian Feluda paper strip COVID-19 Test Work?
The paper-strip uses cutting-edge CRISPR gene-editing technology to identify and target the genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 in less than an hour. The test has been approved by the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) for use in the country.

Covid-19 Pandemic And Children: An Unprecedented Scenario
SARS-CoV-2 which is the causative agent for COVID-19 pandemic continues to manifest with severe acute respiratory syndrome among the adults, however, it offers a considerable signs of less severity and fatality in pediatric age group (0-18 years).
Air Pollution And Covid-19: A Dangerous Mix
Air pollution is a mixture of solid particles and gases in the air. Car emissions, chemicals from factories, dust, pollen and mold spores may be suspended as particles.
Prebiotic production from Agrofood Wastes: An Opportunity to develop high value compounds and generate employment
Increase in agricultural production and their processing simultaneously generating a higher amount of by-products and wastes.
New malaria transmission patterns emerge in Africa
An international study reveals how future climate change could affect malaria transmission in Africa over the next century. Malaria is a climate sensitive diseaseÍ¾ it thrives where it is warm and wet enough to provide surface water suitable for breeding by the mosquitoes that transmit it.
Most homemade masks are doing a great job, even when we sneeze
Aerosol particles are typically classified as less than 5 micrometers, and lie in the range of hundreds of nanometers. However, larger droplets – up to about 1 millimeter in diameter – can also be expelled when an individual speaks, coughs or sneezes. These larger droplets pose a problem because, with sufficient momentum, they can squeeze through the pores of some fabrics, break into smaller droplets and become airborne.
Why different immune responses among different individuals against COVID vaccine?
The Oxford vaccine trial at the centre of safety Concerns this week highlights the idea that people's immune systems respond to vaccines differently.

A short commentary on Molecular diagnosis of COVID-19 using RT-PCR
In today's time, the coronavirus pandemic has caused havoc in the world. This is evidenced in the upsurge of research that is being conducted by both public and private sector laboratories. However, there is a lot of curiosity from the public and individuals are asking the question as to how COVID-19 is being investigated in the laboratories? Keeping this in mind, we have tried to provide information in this article about the detection of COVID-19, thus we hope this information will be helpful to understand the detection of the COVID-19 disease using polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Therefore, we will first know what are PCR and the variations thereof between PCR, RT-PCR, qPCR, and RTqPCR and how they work. We will further explain how coronavirus is detected through RT-PCR.
