Physiological and sanitary potential of peanut seed treated with cinnamon powder

This study aimed to assess the physiological and sanitary potential of peanut seeds cv. BR1, treated with powdered cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum). The experiment was conducted in the laboratories of the Seed and Plant Pathology and Microbiology at the Federal Rural University of Pernambuco / Academic Unit of Garanhuns (UFRPE / UAG). The experimental design was completely randomized, with four replications of 50 seeds....

Congruence between the drug resistance pattern of Escherichia coli and Proteus spp. isolated from humans and those from wild animals

As human populations grow and transform landscapes, contact with wildlife concomitantly increases. Disease emergence has been an important consequence of these contacts, with many of emerging infectious diseases in humans arising from wildlife reservoirs. Drug resistance is a very important dimension of disease emergence and tracing the source is a veritable containment strategy. Escherichia coli and Proteus spp. have...

Carbon dioxide mitigation by microalga in a vertical tubular reactor with recycling of the culture medium

Microalgae use photosynthesis as their principal metabolic mechanism to obtain organic carbon from the inorganic carbon contained in CO2 using solar energy. This process releases oxygen into the atmosphere. The aim of this study was to determine the most appropriate biomass concentration for growing Spirulina sp. LEB 18 (Cyanobacteria) in a vertical tubular photobioreactor with biomass removal and recycling of the...

Plasmid profile of Staphylococcus aureus from orthopaedic patients in Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital Zaria, Nigeria

The aim of this work was to determine the antibiotic susceptibility pattern of the Staphylococcus aureus isolates from orthopaedic patients and their plasmid carriage. A total number of 39 S. aureus were isolated from wound, skin and bed of orthopaedic patients in Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital Zaria, Nigeria with the use of API STAPH identification kit. Antibiotics susceptibility test was done using disc...
