Multidrug-resistant (MDR) and virulent pathogenic strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) are among the most dangerous pathogens in healthcare-associated infections. In this study, a comparative analysis was performed on two clinical Pa strains from pneumonia patients, 1) An acute strain (CMC-115) and 2) A chronic multidrug- and carbapenemresistant strain (CMC-097) with distinct phenotypic and genetic characteristics. A transcriptome analysis using both the Pseudomonas DNA GeneChip microarray and...

Since photosynthesis is the primary process through which light energy absorbed and converted into organic matter, thus, plant chlorophyll pigment (forms A and B) plays an essential role in the progression absorbed solar energy and synthesis of organic matter in a plant. Therefore, this paper aims at the extent to which the optical activity of chlorophyll molecules monitored and methods (non-destructive and destructive) for quantification of chlorophyll content in plants. These methods using to ...
