Identification and pathogenicity of phytopathogenic bacteria associated with soft rot disease of girasole tuber in Egypt

  Six bacterial isolates were isolated from naturally infected tubers of girasole plants (Helianthus tuberosus L. cv. Balady) showing soft rot, which were collected from the experimental farm of the Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Horticulture, El-Minia University, during 2010 and 2011 growing seasons. Pathogenicity tests showed the virulence of the isolated bacteria in girasole tubers...

Brevibacillus parabrevis, Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas citronellolis - Potential candidates for biodegradation of low density polyethylene (LDPE)

  Low density polyethylene is one of the polymers that is up till date nearly impossible to be degraded safely. Biodegradation is the safest method of breakdown that possibly leaves behind less toxic residue and shows potentials of bio-geo chemical cycling of the substrate. Considerable amount of work has been carried out in this area, but most of them...
