Sahariah csvtuijbbb@csvtu.ac.in Open Journal Systems <p>The International journal of Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Biomedical encompasses multidisciplinary fields of Biotechnology, Bioinformatics and Biomedical. It endeavours pure and applied knowledges through advanced methodologies, technologies and or any new area which has potential in these areas and application of scientific inventions for benefit of the society. We invite scholars, academicians and all scientists’ society to share their valuable research in the form of review, research article, short communications through this platform for the better development and betterment of one and only earth. The aim of <strong>International Journal of Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, and Biomedical (IJBBB)</strong> is to propagate the knowledge and establish the communication amongst the researchers, academicians, industry personnel and policy makers.&nbsp;</p> http://csvtujournal.in/index.php/ijbbb/article/view/36 Effectiveness of biosorbent prepared from Trewia nudiflora for the treatment of grey water: reuse potential of treated water for agriculture 2019-06-10T12:15:27+0530 Priyankari Bhattacharya priyankai2004@yahoo.co.in <p>Treatment of high loading grey water using biosorbent prepared from waste material has been proposed. Biosorbent was prepared from fruit peel of <em>Trewia nudiflora.</em> Batch sorption study was conducted using wastewater of varying organic load. It was observed that an optimum dose of 2 g/L of biosorbent resulted in 97% reduction of COD. The equilibrium isotherm data at different temperatures obeyed linear and non-linear isotherms. Various kinetic models were studied to observe the biosorption kinetics. The biosorbent was characterized by infra red, X-ray diffraction and scanning electron micrograph technique before and after biosorption. The reuse efficiency of the biosorbent was evaluated by studying the effect of untreated and treated wastewater on germination potential of seeds, i.e.&nbsp; <em>Vigna mungo</em>, <em>Lens culinaris </em>and<em> Coriandrum sativum.</em> To evaluate the toxicity of treated and untreated effluent peroxidase enzyme (POD) activity was studied. It was observed that the germination rate obtained in seeds exposed to biosorbent treated wastewater was significantly higher compared to those exposed to various dilutions of untreated wastewater. An increase in the activity of peroxidase enzyme was observed in seeds germinated in untreated wastewater whereas application of biosorbent treated wastewater resulted in comparatively reduced POD activity as compared to fresh water values.</p> 2019-05-07T17:17:41+0530 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://csvtujournal.in/index.php/ijbbb/article/view/38 Assessment of phylogenetic relationship of Jatropha based on nuclear ITS regions (ITS/5.8S) and chloroplast (cp) matK gene 2019-06-10T12:16:56+0530 Adreeja Basu upasona83@gmail.com Shree Rajkumar Saha rajjuku@gmail.com Lingaraj Sahoo csvtuteqip.env@gmail.com <p>The phylogenetic relationships between the toxic and the non-toxic variety of <em>Jatropha curcas</em> and its sister species <em>Jatropha podagrica</em> and <em>Jatropha gossypifolia</em> from North East India were assessed using the internal transcribed spacer region of nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA ITS) and the <em>maturaseK</em> gene (<em>matK</em>) of chloroplast. For both the marker system, the maximum genetic distance was maintained between <em>J. podagrica</em> and <em>J. curcas</em>. The % (G + C) content of the <em>matK</em> region was markedly lower than that of the ITS region. &nbsp;ITS biomarkers were able to detect 111 variable sites while only 4 substitutions were detected in highly conserved <em>matK </em>region. The obtained results delineated that, in comparison to <em>matK</em>, ITS sequencing can provide valuable information during interpopulation analysis of <em>Jatropha </em>species.</p> 2019-05-07T00:00:00+0530 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://csvtujournal.in/index.php/ijbbb/article/view/39 Climate Variability and Its Impacts on Water Resources in the State of Manipur 2019-06-10T12:17:42+0530 Bharati Brahmacharimayum bharati.env@gmail.com Yengkokpam Satyajit Singh ssyengkokpam@gmail.com Ashem Rahul Singh benthhook@gmail.com Salam Rita Devi ritaluwang@gmail.com <p>The water resources and the hydrologic cycle form an inseparable component of the changing climate. The alteration of the hydrologic cycle due to variation in the climatic component will result in the redistribution of water resources in the course of time. At the same time, the local micro-climate will be affected by the changes in the water regime which will certainly exacerbate climate change to a certain extent. With a growing population and erratic rainfall, the water resources in the state of Manipur are under tremendous pressure to meet the rising demand. Urbanization, large scale deforestation, untimely rainfall and lack of rain water harvesting practices have worsened the water scarcity in the state. Although the global climate change phenomenon cannot be prevented we could try adapting to the current climate variability. Promotion of water conservation and development of rational adaptation practices would go a long way in minimizing the adverse impacts of climate variability on water resources for a sustainable Manipur.</p> 2019-05-07T17:15:09+0530 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
