Dear Saxena ji,
Thank you for inquiry.

Why all these are not applicable to Tuticorin port or the one planned in AP or WB ?
What an eye opener! As an environmental engineer,disposal of sanitary napkins has always been a concern during waste...
CASSAVA, the staple crop of over 500 million
people across rural Africa, Asia all
America can prove to be fatal if no
properly. But researchers working the
University of Newcastle in UK hope
provide farmers with genetically safer varieties of the crop (New Scientists
147, No 1995).
Cassava root contains poisoin in the
form of cyanoglucoside. Its antidot
enzymes are found in the latex. In a living

resserch team biochemist Monica Hughes, this fermentation process can be improved by using
newly cloned genes. Hughes plans to
manufacture the cyanoglucoside-destroying enzymes using genetic
engineering on natural bacteria obtained from the fermentation processing units
The other strategy
involves a long-term solution. By providing the roots
with larger doses of the
enzyme, detoxification during fermentation can be
improved. Once the genes in
the plants are altered, it
i would be possible for the
plants to manufacture more enzymes in
the roots than before, Says Hughes, "The

replanting sticks, so we only need to
modify one plant and give it back to the
