    Abstract: Insect pollinators are essential in increasing seed set of many flower and fruit crops. This experiment was carried out to evaluate the effect of the honey bee pollination in seed yield and oil contents of Glycine max L. The plots were grouped into three treatment groups with three replications. The results of the study showed that the yield obtain... Show More

    Abstract: Mutant selection is due to the high rate of viral replication and lack of proofreading activity in the hepatitis B virus (HBV) polymerase thus leading to the generation of mutations in HBV. However naturally occurring HBV strains carrying primary drug resistance mutations are very rare in the absence of prior treatment. Monitoring changes in primar... Show More
  • Effect of Heat Treatment on Antioxidant Capacity and Antioxidant Compounds of Eight Tomato Varieties from Four Growing Areas in Côte d’Ivoire

    Abstract: Tef [Eragrostis tef (Zucc.) Trotter] is one of the most significant cereal crops farmed in Ethiopia; it is the first crop in terms of area coverage; nevertheless, its production has been partially hampered by low grain yield and less stability of the released tef genotypes. This study was done to determine the degree of stability and genotype by en... Show More
