Cytotaxonomy: Study of Chromosome Behaviour

Chromosome behavious is an important factor that determine the pattern of variation and taxonomic distinctness.Pairing behavior and subsequent separation of chromosome occurs at meiosis. In reporting results of pairing studies, univalents are represented by I, bivalents by II, etc. Some taxonomic information can be gained from the study of mechanism …

Cytotaxonomy: Study of Chromosome Structure

Study of chromosome structure is very important in cytotaxonomic studies. It includes chromosome size, shape and position of centromere (i.e. arm-length ratio of each chromosome in the genome) Chromosomal size and shape are also important as taxonomic criteria in taxonomy. For examples, The chromosomal ratio if Mediola and Trillium of …

Chromosome Number: A Great Tool in Taxonomic Studies

Taxonomy – is the branch of biology that deals with identification, nomenclature and classification of an object. Cytology – is the branch of biology that deals with origin, structure and function of cell. So Cytotaxonomy presumably means the application of cytological data to taxonomy. More precisely we can say Cytotaxonomy …

Microalgae in Biofuel Production

Abstract: The use of liquid fossil fuel has long being considered insufficieunt and surely the liquid fossil fuel will be diminished  by the middle of this century. Besides fossil fuel is closely related to environmental degradation and green house emission. On the other hand biofuel has been a great renewable …
