Fingerprinting analytical strategy used for authentication of honey
Oana Romina DINCAa,b, Roxana Elena IONETEa*, Raluca POPESCUa, Radu TAMAIANa, Diana COSTINELa, Gabriel Lucian RADUb

The goal of the current study is mainly to establish potential origin markers, and not to build a model for prediction. This research provides a database for comparison of honey samples from Romania with other honey samples from the world. Data on d13C, d18O and d2H of honey measured by IRMS together with the stable isotopes (deuterium by SNIF-NMR and carbon 13 - IRMS) in ethanol from fermented honeys were reported.

A novel DNA amplification method based on silicon microring resonator for rapid detection of genetic alteration in the point-of care (POC) field of cancers

Nucleic acid testing plays a critical role in molecular diagnosis[1-2]. Due to the low amounts of DNA obtained in clinical samples, the amplification of DNA is an essential step in most NAT methods [3].

Effect of Heat and Cold Treatment on Germination and Early Growth Stage of Terminal Heat Tolerant (WH 730) and Intolerant (RAJ 4014) Wheat Genotypes
Om Prakash Gupta

Being second important staple food crop globally, wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) production is largely limited by heat and cold stress which adversely affects the germination, crop growth and development. Terminal heat stress is a major problem for wheat production which severely affects the grain yield.

Variation in miRNA expression between TRV-infected tobacco plants is correlated with symptom severity and TRV-16K transcripts abundance
Zhimin Yin, Krystyna Michalak, Miroslawa Chrzanowska

In the present work, expression of certain miRNAs and their targets were investigated in three tobacco plants infected with Tobacco rattle virus (TRV) isolate Deb57 collected from Northern Poland in 2008.

Discovery of Conserved Domains for Development of Functional Markers and Identification of microRNAs from Drought Responsive Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) in Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.)
Mandape M, Saikumar K, Dudhe MY, Kumar J, Meena HP, Chauhan J, Afroz A

This stidy identified that conserved domains or gene families from the ESTs could be utilized for the identification of gene-targeted markers and for development of functional markers to accelerate marker assisted backcross breeding in chickpea.

Automated Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor Cardiotoxicity Assay in Zebrafish
Olaia Holgado, Juan Maria Virto, Isaskun Ibarbia, Patrice Dubreuil, Didier Pez, Ainhoa Letamendia, Martine Humbert, Alain Moussy, Carles Callol-Massot

The zebrafish embryos have recently gained relevance in biomedical research thanks to some of its characteristics including embryo transparency. Combined with the possibility to adapt the model with an automatic device and the reduced cost associated to each assay, the model is an ideal killer experiment in early phases of drug discovery as well as a novel method to increase the selection arguments to reduce the candidates to enter into the Drug Development process.
