Abstract

It is well recognized, that outcomes of mutualistic plant-microorganism interactions are often context dependent and can range from mutualistic to antagonistic depending on conditions. Instead, seemingly pathogenic associations are generally considered only harmful to plants. The ergot ...read more

Genome-scale tools are revolutionizing studies of evolution by providing complete determination of the genetic basis of adaptation. Discover the latest research on Genome Dynamics and Adaptation here.

Drug-Induced Diseases

Drug-induced diseases (DID) also called as iatrogenic diseases. Most of these DIDs are largely preventable, if strict vigilance and proper periodic clinical and diagnostic monitoring are undertaken
