Proteins are present in the living world, regardless of the size of the organism, as they form the structural and functional basis of the cell. Under certain circumstances, it may become necessary to identify the proteins. For determining the presence
Nearly 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water and it is generally recognized as a renewable resource and plant water relations. However the availability of fresh water still remains a limiting factor not only for plant growth but
