Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of Salmonella species isolated from treated wastewater effluents and receiving rivers in Durban.
Salmonella and Shigella spp. are major pathogens of humans and they cause diseases ranging from mild food poisoning to chronic diarrhoea, especially in children under the age of 5. They are commonly found in the gastrointestinal ...
Optimization of xylose and glucose yields from Napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum) using hybrid pretreatment and assessment for fermentative hydrogen production using immobilized cells.
The dependence on non-renewable fossil fuels has led to the depletion of these energies and global warming. Thus there is a need to search for sustainable energy sources to mitigate these challenges. Lignocellulosic biomass ...
Characterization of antimicrobial resistance genes of Aeromonas spp. isolated from fish and investigation of phytochemical treatment efficacy against resistant isolates.
Abstract available from print copy.
Molecular characterisation of Peronospora parasitica infecting Brassica species.
Peronospora parasitica (Pers. ex. Fr.) Fr., pathotype, single spore isolate, Brassica spp., downy mildew, internally transcribed spacers, ITSI , 5.8S, ITS2 sequence, radial phylogram, phylogeny, peR, micro satellite ...
Treated wastewater effluent as a potential source of virulent and antibiotic resistant Yersinia species in receiving surface water.
Yersinia enterocolitica is a potentially pathogenic bacterium transmitted through the faecal-oral route. Typical symptoms include those associated with gastrointestinal disease, although infection can also lead to more ...
Optimization of biohydrogen production inoculum development via hybrid pre-treatment techniques : semi pilot scale production assessment on agro waste (potato peels)
The challenges of energy crisis and environmental pollution are vital issues hindering the global sustainable development as a result of over dependence on fossil fuels. These are driving the need to explore renewable ...
Purification and characterization of catechol -1,2-dioxygenase from Acinetobacter sp. strain Y64 and Escherichia.coli transformants.
Abstract available in the print copy.
A microfluidics system for drug susceptibility testing in mycobacterium smegmatis.
Tuberculosis remains a major health concern worldwide. The emergence of strains resistant to anti-tuberculosis drugs has further complicated management of this disease. In addition, the prolonged multidrug chemotherapy (6 ...
