Research Highlights -2013
Next Generation Sequencing of Phytophthora capsici
Useful information from the Statistics of functional annotation, conserved domain identification and comparative genome analysis of two different isolates of Phytophthora sp. infecting black pepper has been extracted.
Docking studies in phenylpropanoids from black pepper
Docking studies for identifying inhibitory activity of phenylpropanoids from black pepper (Piper nigrum L.) and their mechanism of phytochemical-mediated plant defense against the burrowing nematode (Radopholus similis) was carried out using β-1, 4, endoglucanase, calreticulin 1, xylanase, transthyretin-like protein 3 precursor, cathepsin B, cytochrome C oxidase subunit III, cathepsin S-like cysteine proteinase and glutathione-S-transferase
New database developed

A new database, Ginger Transcriptome Database ( based on transcriptome of Curcuma amada and Zingiber officinale has been developed.
