  1. Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis in Indian mung bean (Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek) cultivars.
  2. Secreted aspartic protease cleavage of Candida albicans Msb2 activates Cek1 MAPK signaling affecting biofilm formation and oropharyngeal candidiasis.
  3. Genetic diversity of Indian isolates of rice blast pathogen (Magnaporthe grisea) using molecular markers.
  4. Retrotransposon-microsatellite amplified polymorphism (REMAP) markers for genetic diversity assessment of the rice blast pathogen (Magnaporthe grisea).
  5. Comparative assessment of REMAP and ISSR marker assays for genetic polymorphism studies in Magnaporthe grisea.
  6. Histatin 5 uptake by Candida albicans utilizes polyamine transporters Dur3 and Dur31 proteins.
  7. Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis of genetic diversity in Indian mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] cultivars.
  8. Transposable elements as stress adaptive capacitors induce genomic instability in fungal pathogen Magnaporthe oryzae.
  9. Detection of Magnaporthe grisea in infested rice seeds using polymerase chain reaction.
  10. Simple fluorescenceā€based high throughput cell viability assay for filamentous fungi.
