Evaluation of various marine products against Rhizoctonia solani under in vitro condition

Rhizoctonia solani is the causative agent of rice sheath blight, which has become a major problem in rice production. Seaweed provides a rich source of structurally diverse and biologically active secondary metabolite and is proved to be better in decreasing foliar fungal diseases which ultimately increase its fertility and help in the growth of plants. The use of natural products is the ultimate way of combating this...

GC-MS and molecular analyses of monocrotophos biodegradation by selected bacterial isolates

Soil treatment incubation method was carried out to analyze the monocrotophos (MCP) biodegradation using three selected bacterial isolates namely Pseudomonas stutzeri (KY287931), Bacillus licheniforms (KY287928), and Bacillus sonorensis (KY287930). After 45 days of incubation of pesticide exposed to soil samples, the MCP biodegradation by individual cultures and consortium culture was analyzed and conformed by gas...

Antibiotic susceptibility and serotype patterns of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from clinical isolates in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire

Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) has been found to be a common hospital acquired pathogen, responsible for several severe infections. The objective of this study was to describe the antibiotic resistance profile of P. aeruginosa strains from human sample. This descriptive study was carried out on 168 isolated strains of P. aeruginosa collected from January 2014 to December 2015 at the Pasteur Institute of...
