At the TA18 conference on “Technology Assessment and Normativity”, held in Vienna in June 2018, an equally spontaneous and memorable controversy arose between Armin Grunwald and Pierre Delvenne concerning the roles of neutrality and democracy in technology assessment (TA), its philosophical foundations, and TA’s obligation to be inclusive. How do TA’s obligation to democracy and its operational neutrality relate to each other, where do they interfere, and what are the practical consequences? And what does this imply for TA’s future? Should we shape TA today according to the ideals of a strong democracy that advocates value-oriented solutions while not shying away from conflicts? Or should we rather strive for a fundamental normative orientation toward democracy, which, however, for this very reason follows the neutrality principle in TA practice and does not favor certain pathways? As editors of TATuP’s special issue on normativity in technology assessment, our intention has been to make this debate accessible to a wider readership by confronting the two researchers once more with the core issues of their dispute.

The performance of lithium‐ and sodium‐ion batteries relies notably on the accessibility to carbon electrodes of controllable porous structure and chemical composition. This work reports a facile synthesis of well‐defined N‐doped porous carbons (NPCs) using a poly(ionic liquid) (PIL) as precursor, and graphene oxide (GO)‐stabilized poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) nanoparticles as sacrificial template. The GO‐stabilized PMMA nanoparticles are first prepared and then decorated by a thin PIL coating before carbonization. The resulting NPCs reach a satisfactory specific surface area of up to 561 m2 g−1 and a hierarchically meso‐ and macroporous structure while keeping a nitrogen content of 2.6 wt%. Such NPCs deliver a high reversible charge/discharge capacity of 1013 mA h g−1 over 200 cycles at 0.4 A g−1 for lithium‐ion batteries, and show a good capacity of 204 mA h g−1 over 100 cycles at 0.1 A g−1 for sodium‐ion batteries.

Due to their great modularity, ease of implementation, and atom economy, multicomponent reactions (MCRs) are becoming increasingly popular macromolecular engineering tools. In this context, MCRs suitable in polymer synthesis are eagerly searched for. This work demonstrates the potential of the Ugi-three component reaction (Ugi-3CR) for the design of polymers and, in particular, of poly(α-amino amide)s. A series of polymers containing amino and amido groups within their backbone were obtained through a one-pot process by reacting aliphatic or aromatic diamines, diisocyanides, and aldehydes. The impact of temperature, concentration, catalyst loading, and substrates on polymerization efficiency is discussed. A preliminary study on the thermal properties and the solution behavior of these poly(α-amino amide)s was carried out. An aliphatic-rich derivative notably showed some pH-responsiveness in water via protonation−deprotonation of its amino groups. [less ▲]

Recent progresses made in the nonlinear system identification field have improved the ability to emulate nonlinear audio systems such as tube guitar amplifiers. As a straightforward comparison of different models cannot always be made, we propose a new reference dataset enabling to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of different nonlinear modeling methods. Our dataset gathers five different styles of guitar sounds passing through different guitar amplifiers with 10 steps of their gain parameter (i.e., the distortion level of the amplifier). Moreover, a Matlab function is also provided to obtain the desired input/output sounds in a matrix form. [less ▲]

As unanimously claimed within the rare disease community, cooperation between all stakeholders is a necessity in order to tackle these diseases and improve the difficult situations faced by patients and families. Public authorities, health professionals, scientists, industrials, or obviously patients and relatives' associations, have an active part to play in the collective projects that are currently being developed worldwide. However, putting cooperation into practice does not always go unhindered. Drawing on a qualitative research in social sciences, this poster presented some drivers and effects of cooperation in the field of rare diseases in Belgium and, more generally, in Europe. It highlighted some meaningful points of agreement and tension such as the degree of adequacy between international guidelines and national constraints, the confrontation between professional and experiential points of view, or the multiple meanings and uses of the "rare diseases" category. To conclude, the poster stated the value of multidisciplinary perspectives and mutual exchanges between social scientists and stakeholders, for the joint understanding of, and cooperation in, the lively field of rare diseases.

The final yields could reach 98% in less than 10 hours at 353K and 3MPa under solvent free conditions. A particular synergistic effect between the cation and the anion of the organocatalyst is demonstrated through catalyst screening. Online kinetic studies by ATR-IR spectroscopy correlated to DFT calculations reveal a compelling evolution of the solvation of the catalyst during the reaction that provide an understanding of the underlying reason for the observed unique kinetics and selectivity.

An unprecedented level of control for the radical polymerization of vinylidene fluoride (VDF), yielding well-defined PVDF (up to 14,500 g/mol) with low dispersity (≤1.32), was achieved using organometallic mediated radical polymerization (OMRP) with an organocobalt compound as initiator. The high chain-end fidelity was demonstrated by the synthesis of PVDF- and PVAc-containing di-and tri-block copolymers.

Phosphorus (P) is an important macronutrient affecting the growth and yield of all crop plants. Plants absorb P from the soil solution as inorganic phosphate (Pi). More than 70% of the arable land is deficient of Pi which demands the supply of an external source of synthetic P fertilizers to improve the yields. The P fertilizers are manufactured from non-renewable rock phosphate reserves which are expected to be exhausted within the next 100-200 years. This poses a great threat to food security since it is very difficult to meet the food production caused by increasing world population without the supply of an adequate P fertilizer. Several efforts have been made in the past decade to understand the mechanism of Pi uptake and its redistribution in plants. In this mini-review, we discuss the details on possible strategies to combat the crisis caused by loss of phosphate rock reserves and to improve the crop yield without much dependency on external P fertilizer. Approaches such as application of functional genomics studies to manipulate the expression levels of key transcription factors and genes involved in low Pi stress tolerance, molecular marker-assisted breeding to develop new varieties with improved yields under Pi-deficient soils and to recapture the Pi released in wastewaters for recycling back to the farm lands, will help improve the crop production without depending much on non-renewable P fertilizers and will also aid for the sustainable food production. © 2018 S.

Osteoarthritis is a painful degenerative disease, sometimes responsible for the premature ending of the careers of sporting horses. In humans, meniscal neurogenesis has been suggested to contribute to pain in osteoarthritis. To the best of our knowledge, no study on this subject has been performed in equine species. The aim of this report was to compare the density of the nociceptive and sympathetic nerves in the menisci of two 11- and 13-year-old mares, one presenting a “low-chondropathy grade” in its stifle and the other a “high-chondropathy grade”. The cranial horns of the medial menisci, a commonly reported site of equine meniscal injuries, were harvested after a maximum of 48 hours postmortem. A macroscopic and microscopic grading system was established using a modified Pauli score. Nociceptive fibers were highlighted by immunohistochemical staining with an antibody against Substance P (SP) and postganglionic sympathetic fibers with an antibody against tyrosine hydroxylase (TH). Descriptive statistics were calculated, and a nonparametric statistical test was used to analyze the data. The meniscus from the “high-chondropathy horse (HCH)” showed a higher density and frequency of postganglionic sympathetic nerves compared with the meniscus of the “low-chondropathy horse (LCH)”. No difference was observed regarding nociceptive nerves. This report shows possible meniscal sympathetic efferent-mediated pain in a “highly chondropathic horse”. Although these results cannot be extended to the equine population as a whole because of the small sample size, they are nevertheless interesting as they provide new information regarding the possible etiology of the pain in equine stifle osteoarthritis.

Introduction Parathyroid carcinoma (PCa) is a rare presentation of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), accounting for less than 1 % of cases. Differentiating parathyroid cancer from adenoma is clinically challenging. Rubin et al (2008) et al. suggested that urinary hCG might be a marker of disease progression in PCa. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether the hCG+β kit from Roche Diagnostics could distinguish PCa patients from PHPT. Material and methods We studied a series of 8 patients suffering from advanced PCa, referred to the CHU de Liege. A control group of 20 PHPT patients was used as comparative. hCG+β kit on Cobas (Roche Diagnostics) uses 2 monoclonal antibodies that recognize holo-hCG, nicked hCG, β-core fragment and free β-subunit. Limits of hCG detection and quantification are <0.1 and <0.6 mUI/mL. In non pregnant and postmenopausal women and in men, hCG (p95) is <1 (5.3), <7 mUI/mL (8.3) and <2 (2.6) mUI/mL, respectively. Results. The 8 PCa patients (3 women) presented high serum hCG values at: 1.29, 3.46, 5.7, 24.2, 31.2, 34.1, 36.5 and 164 mUI/mL. Values of 1.29 and 3.46 were obtained in 2 postmenopausal women. The lowest value was presented by the only still alive patient. There was a significant correlation (r=0.786; ρ <0.05) between hCG and PTH and a borderline correlation (r=0.750; ρ =0.05) between hCG and calcium concentrations. All PHP patients presented undetectable hCG values. Conclusions These results suggest that serum hCG might have the potential to discriminate between parathyroid adenomas and carcinomas, with a sensibility of 75% (6/8) and a specificity of 100% (0/20). The only patient still alive presented the lowest hCG values. If hCG could be predictive of PCa survival needs to be studied in a larger series of patients. [less ▲]

Introduction Performance of people undergoing critical tasks (like driving) may be impaired completely by the lowering of their vigilance level, due to sleep deprivation for instance. This reduction of performance may be measured by metrics computed from the reaction times (RT) recorded during a 10min Psychomotor Vigilance Test (PVT). Here, we analyze and compare the sensitivity to sleep deprivation and the subject dependent variability of the PVT metrics performance, with a special emphasis on the time interval sizes. Materials and Methods Individuals (22 volunteers; 11 males, 11 females, mean 22.2y., range 19-34 years) follow an uninterrupted 28h sleep deprivation standard PVT protocol during which they achieved two groups of three PVT sessions (in different conditions). The first PVT of each group is in Non-SDP condition (9h30 and 10h30 Day 1) and the second and third PVT of each group are in SDP condition (2h30, 3h30, 10h30 and 11h30 day 2). The subjects fill a sleep journal during the week before the experiment. We checked that they had a normal sleep-wake cycle with no sleep deprivation, jet-lag or shift work and no medication. During the PVT of the first group, the subjects were wearing the glasses of the Phasya’s Drowsimeter. We compute the usual PVT metrics; meanRT, meanRS (Reaction Speed) and LN500 (500ms lapses number). We also compute LNQ25 (adaptive lapses number computed with a subject dependent threshold) and ELN (Expected Lapse Number, computed from a subject-dependent estimation of the lapse probability). Results We use the “Effect Size” (ES, ratio of the mean by the standard deviation of the difference of metrics in the SDP and Non-SDP conditions) to assess the sensitivity to sleep deprivation. For the 10min (resp. 1min, 3min) interval, the ES of LNQ25 and ELN are respectively 1.38 (resp. 0.95, 1.22) and 1.35 (resp. 0.85, 1.14), the ES of meanRS, meanRT and LN500 are 1.23 (resp. 0.91, 1.09), 0.81 (resp. 0.54, 0.68) and 0.85 (resp. 0.63, 0.77). We classify the intervals on which metrics are computed as SDP or non-SDP. We use a fixed threshold for the metrics, independent of the subject. In the ROC curves, the TPR (for a FPR of 10%) assesses the quality of the classification, and then also the subject independence. For the 10min (resp. 1min, 3min) interval, the TPR of LNQ25 and ELN are respectively 0.86 (resp. 0.56, 0.75) and 0.83 (resp. 0.58, 0.75), the TPR of meanRS, meanRT and LN500 are 0.42 (resp. 0.38, 0.41), 0.40 (resp. 0.39, 0.40) and 0.42 (resp. 0.24, 0.30). Conclusions We demonstrate that LNQ25 and ELN enable a quite good classification of the SDP condition for time intervals greater than or equal to 3min, independently of the subject. On the other hand, these metrics provide also a good sensitivity to sleep deprivation. They outperform the usual metrics for both criteria. For time intervals below 3min, the performances degrade first progressively and then much more quickly below 1min. [less ▲]

There is an increasing interest in the specific physicochemical properties of gradient copolymers at interfaces. In this work, the phase behavior and interfacial properties of amphiphilic gradient copolymers at the water/CO2 interface are explored and compared to that of diblock copolymer counterparts. It is observed that spontaneous amphiphilic block-like gradient copolymers made of N,N-dimethylacrylamide, vinyl pivalate, and vinyl acetate exhibit slightly lower cloud point pressures in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) than the corresponding diblock copolymers. Much more pronounced differences are established at the water/scCO2 interface, with larger critical aggregation concentration (CAC), much faster adsorption kinetics and equilibration, and lower surface tension for gradient copolymers. RAFT/MADIX polymerization allows the control of molar mass, composition, and microstructure of the copolymers of the study. These findings shed light on how microstructural control in amphiphilic copolymers can give access to a new range of macromolecular emulsifiers for CO2 media with improved properties. [less ▲]

Introduction: Although fibromyalgia syndrome (SFM) affects 2–4 percent of adults, research has not identified a preferred therapeutic option for patients worldwide yet. Based on recent findings, it can be expected that whole body cryotherapy can improve health-reported quality of life by alleviating the symptoms of musculoskeletal pain and fatigue. Objective: Our aim was to determine whether whole body cryotherapy only can result in improved perceived health and quality of life in fibromyalgia patients. Methods: 24 patients with fibromyalgia diagnosis were randomized into 2 groups (n= 11 in the whole body cryotherapy group, n=13 in the control group). In the whole body cryotherapy group, 10 sessions of whole body cryotherapy were performed (in addition to usual care) in a standard cryotherapy room over a duration of 8 days. Subjects in the control group did not change anything in their everyday activities. Quality of life was assessed just before and one month after treatment. Results: Compared with the control group, patients in the whole body cryotherapy group reported significantly improved for health-reported quality of life. These effects lasted for at least one month following intervention. Conclusion: Based on these findings, whole body cryotherapy can be recommended as an effective clinically adjuvant approach in the improvement of health-related quality of life in fibromyalgia patients.

Redox-active catechols are bioinspired precursors for ortho-quinones that are characterized by higher discharge potentials than para-quinones, the latter being extensively used as organic cathode materials for lithium ion batteries (LIBs). Here, this study demonstrates that the rational molecular design of copolymers bearing catechol- and Li+ ion-conducting anionic pendants endow redox-active polymers (RAPs) with ultrarobust electrochemical energy storage features when combined to carbon nanotubes as a flexible, binder-, and metal current collector-free buckypaper electrode. The importance of the structure and functionality of the RAPs on the battery performances in LIBs is discussed. The structure-optimized RAPs can store high-capacities of 360 mA h g−1 at 5C and 320 mA h g−1 at 30C in LIBs. The high ion and electron mobilities within the buckypaper also enable to register 96 mA h g−1 (24% capacity retention) at an extreme C-rate of 600C (6 s for total discharge). Moreover, excellent cyclability is noted with a capacity retention of 98% over 3400 cycles at 30C. The high capacity, superior active-material utilization, ultralong cyclability, and excellent rate performances of RAPs-based electrode clearly rival most of the state-of-the-art Li+ ion organic cathodes, and opens up new horizons for large-scalable fabrication of electrode materials for ultrarobust Li storage.

Poly(ionic liquid)s (PILs) have attracted considerable attention as innovative single-ion solid polyelectrolytes (SPEs) in substitution to the more conventional electrolytes for a variety of electrochemical devices. Herein, we report the precise synthesis, characterization, and use as single-ion SPEs of a novel double PIL-based amphiphilic diblock copolymer (BCP), i.e., where all monomer units are of N-vinyl-imidazolium type, with triethylene glycol pendant groups in the first block and a statistical distribution of N-vinyl-3-ethyl- and N-vinyl-3-perfluorooctyl-imidazolium bromides in the second block. BCP synthesis is achieved directly in water by a one-pot process, by cobalt-mediated radical polymerization-induced self-assembly (CMR-PISA). A subsequent anion exchange reaction substituting bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide (Tf2N-) for bromide (Br-) counter-anions leads to PIL BCPs with two different lengths of the first block. They demonstrate ionic conductivity σDC = 1-3 × 10-7 S cm-1, as determined by broadband dielectric spectroscopy at 30 °C (under anhydrous conditions), and exhibit wide electrochemical stability (up to 4.8 V versus Li+/Li) and form free-standing films with mechanical properties suited for SPE applications (Young's modulus = 3.8 MPa, elongation at break of 250%) as determined by stress/strain experiments. © 2017 American Chemical Society.

A chemically cross-linked but remarkably (re)processable shape-memory polymer (SMP) is designed by cross-linking poly(ε -caprolactone) (PCL) stars via the efficient triazolinedione click chemistry, based on the very fast and reversible Alder– ene reaction of 1,2,4-triazoline-3,5-dione (TAD) with indole compounds. Typically, a six-arm star-shaped PCL function- alized by indole moieties at the chain ends is melt-blended with a bisfunctional TAD, directly resulting in a cross-linked PCL-based SMP without the need of post-curing treatment. As demonstrated by the stress relaxation measurement, the labile character of the TAD–indole adducts under stress allows for the solid-state plasticity reprocessing of the permanent shape at will by compression molding of the raw cross-linked material, while keeping excellent shape-memory properties.

The thermochemical method called “biomass gasification” is generating emphatic interest for the production of bio-Syngas (CO+H2) since this process presents the advantage of being renewable without emitting CO2. However, in practical applications, there are still some technical problems due to high concentration of tars in the outlet gas, which can condensate and clog the pipes. Previous studies have highlighted the fact that the tar elimination via catalytic reforming seem to be the more practical and economical solution. Catalysts were synthesized by an aqueous sol-gel process to develop γ-Al2O3 doped with 10wt.% of nickel and 2 wt.% of a second dopant (Co, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo). Before their adding in AlOOH sol, metallic dopants were complexed with (OCH3)3-Si-(CH2)3-NH-(CH2)2-NH2 (EDAS) to increase their dispersion by cogelation between EDAS and AlOOH clusters. All the samples were tested for toluene reforming. [less ▲]

Eosinophils are typically considered to be specialized effector cells that are recruited to the tissues as a result of T helper type 2 (Th2) cell responses associated with helminth infections or allergic diseases such as asthma. Once at the site of injury, eosinophils release their cytotoxic granule proteins as well as preformed cytokines and lipid mediators, contributing to parasite destruction but also to exacerbation of inflammation and tissue damage. Accumulating evidence indicates that, besides their roles in Th2 responses, eosinophils also regulate homeostatic processes at steady state, thereby challenging the exclusive paradigm of the eosinophil as a destructive and inflammatory cell. Indeed, under baseline conditions, eosinophils rapidly leave the bloodstream to enter tissues, mainly the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, adipose tissue, thymus, uterus, and mammary glands, where they regulate a variety of important biological functions, such as immunoregulation, control of glucose homeostasis, protection against obesity, regulation of mammary gland development, and preparation of the uterus for pregnancy. This article provides an overview of the characteristics and functions of these homeostatic eosinophils. [less ▲]

La Perspective Temporelle Equilibrée fait référence à une disposition individuelle caractérisée par le fait de se projeter mentalement dans le futur et dans le passé de manière positive et fréquente. Nous avons développé la version française d’une échelle initialement conçue en anglais, évaluant cette orientation temporelle : la “Balanced Time Perspective Scale” (Webster, 2011). Une étude en ligne a permis de recueillir les données de 622 participants francophones issus de la population générale (Barsics et al., 2017). Les résultats indiquent que la version française réplique la structure en deux facteurs du questionnaire original et plaident en faveur d’une bonne validité de construit. De surcroît, les résultats montrent qu’une tendance importante à se projeter mentalement dans le futur et dans le passé de manière positive et fréquente est associée à la réévaluation cognitive, une stratégie de régulation émotionnelle. En somme, ce questionnaire permet d’évaluer la perspective temporelle, qui est ici envisagée en tant qu’importante ressource pour le Self, et ce, en étroite relation avec les capacités de régulation émotionnelle.

Heutige chemische Produkte basieren fast ausschließlich auf erdölbasierten Rohstoffen. Aufgrund weltweiter Bemühungen, die Abhängigkeit von fossilen Rohstoffen zu reduzieren, wird in den letzten Jahren verstärkt die Nutzung alternativer Kohlenstoffquellen wie Biomasse oder CO2 erforscht. Die alternativen Kohlenstoffquellen unterscheiden sich hinsichtlich ihrer Zusammensetzung und Stoffeigenschaften teilweise deutlich von fossilen Rohstoffen. Aus diesem Grund müssen Syntheserouten und darauf aufbauende Prozesse neu entwickelt werden. Da zum einen sehr viele Syntheserouten prinzipiell denkbar sind und zum anderen die Entwicklung der entsprechenden Prozesse aufwendig ist, wird eine Möglichkeit benötigt, begrenzte Entwicklungsressourcen sinnvoll zu steuern. Dazu sollte bereits in einem frühen Entwicklungsstadium ein quantitativer Vergleich der Syntheserouten erfolgen, um diejenigen zu identifizieren, die das größte wirtschaftliche Potential versprechen. In diesem Vortrag wird eine Methodik vorgestellt, um eine schnelle erste, auf Exergie basierte Bewertung des wirtschaftlichen Potentials einer Syntheseroute bereits in einem frühen Entwicklungsstadium durchzuführen, in dem nur wenige Informationen vorliegen. Die Idee der Methodik ist, Syntheserouten in standardisierten Prozessen abzubilden, wodurch eine automatisierte Auswertung und somit ein schnelles Screening möglich wird. Die standardisierten Prozesse umfassen sowohl den Einfluss der Reaktion durch Abbildung der Reaktionsbedingungen, Stöchiometrie, Umsatz und Selektivität als auch die Auswirkungen der Trennaufgabe. Ebenso berücksichtigt wird die Rückführung von Lösungsmitteln und ggf. nicht umgesetzten Edukten. Als zentrale Bewertungsgröße zur Abschätzung des wirtschaftlichen Potentials wird eine Kombination aus Exergie- und Rohstoffeinsatz herangezogen. Der Vorteil von Exergiebilanzen gegenüber Energiebilanzen ist, dass die Produktion von Entropie berücksichtigt wird und so die Auswirkungen einzelner Prozessschritte untersucht und zwischen verschiedenen Energieformen unterschieden werden kann. Durch Berechnung der Exergieverluste, also der Verluste von Exergie aufgrund von Entropieerzeugung in den Prozessen, ergibt sich ein quantitativer Vergleich verschiedener Syntheserouten. [less ▲]

Most studies that monitor a biological parameter over time in fish are based on the culling of animals and subsequent tissue sampling or the use of complicated surgical procedures such as cannulation of the dorsal aorta. The former method suffers from the large inter-individual variability typically seen in outbred fish, whilst the latter requires highly skilled operators and is not possible with small fish. We describe here a novel and simple method based on non-lethal collection of blood samples from the same individual, allowing improved data quality and reduction in number of animals used without the need for surgical procedures. The frequency and volume of blood collected repeatedly was adjusted to limit the decrease in the percentage of blood packed cell volume (PPCV). The stress response evaluated by measuring the expression of the heat shock proteins 90αb1, 70KDa and the cytochrome p450 family 17 A1 in blood cells by qPCR. Expression levels increased during the PPCV decline and returned to their basal level after adjustment of the sampling procedure. This study demonstrates that a non-lethal sampling procedure can be used for salmonid fish and gene expression in blood cells can be monitored over time from the same individual. [less ▲]

Amphiphilic double poly(ionic liquid) (PIL) block copolymers are directly prepared by cobalt- mediated radical polymerization induced self-assembly (CMR-PISA) in water of N-vinyl imida- zolium monomers carrying distinct alkyl chains. The cobalt-mediated radical polymerization of N-vinyl-3-ethyl imidazolium bromide (VEtImBr) is first carried out until high conversion in water at 30 °C, using an alkyl bis(acetylacetonate)cobalt(III) adduct as initiator and con- trolling agent. The as-obtained hydrophilic poly(N-vinyl-3- ethyl imidazolium bromide) (PVEtImBr) is then used as a macroinitiator for the CMR-PISA of N-vinyl-3-octyl imidazo- lium bromide (VOcImBr). Self-assembly of the amphiphilic PVEtImBr-b-PVOcImBr block copolymer, i.e., of PIL-b-PIL-type, rapidly takes place in water, forming polymer nanoparticles consisting of a hydrophilic PVEtImBr corona and a hydro- phobic PVOcImBr core. Preliminary investigation into the effect of the size of the hydrophobic block on the dimension of the nanoparticles is also described. [less ▲]

Genetic variation among 45 genotypes of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L.) representing seven subpopulations was assessed using three single primer amplification reaction (SPAR) methods viz., inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR), random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and directed amplification of minisatellite-region DNA (DAMD). Totally 15 ISSR, 8 RAPD and 7 DAMD primers generated 263 amplification products, accounting for 84.6% polymorphism across all the genotypes. The Mantel's test of correlation revealed the best correlation between ISSR and cumulative data with a correlation coefficient (r) of 0.84. Assessment of population diversity indicated that the maximum intra population genetic diversity was recorded among high FeZn lines (HFL) having maximum values of Nei's genetic diversity (h) (0.244), Shannon information index (I) (0.368) and the percentage of polymorphic loci (Pp) (72.65%) while the corresponding lowest values of 0.074, 0.109 and 17.95% respectively were observed among the members of MDT subpopulation. The mean coefficient of gene differentiation (GST) and the gene flow (Nm) between populations were observed to be 0.396 and 0.7680 respectively. The analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) suggested that maximum genetic variation exists within populations (95%) than among populations (5%). Thus the information obtained from this study could be utilized in sorghum breeding programmes for the development of varieties with improved nutrition and agronomic values in future. [less ▲]
