Establishment of rice yield prediction model using canopy reflectance

The major objectives of this study were to identify spectral characteristics associated with rice yield and to establish their quantitative relationships. Field experiments were conducted at Shi-Ko experimental farm of TARI’s Chiayi Station, during 2001 to 2005. Rice cultivar Tainung 67 (Oryza sativa L.), the major cultivar grown in Taiwan, was used in the study. Various levels of rice yield were obtained via...

Three dimensional modelling of beta endorphin and its interaction with three opioid receptors

Beta endorphin is a neurotransmitter and is involved in functions like enhancement of immune system, deceleration of cancer cell growth and induction of euphoria and relaxation. It is an opioid like neuropeptide synthesized in neurons of hypothalamus and pituitary gland. The study of its structure and its interaction with opioid receptors can throw light on its neuropsychopharmacology. Protein data bank does not contain...
