For a limited period, i.e. up to 30 May 2015, the author fees has been reduced. It was decided to reduce the author fees for papers submitted up to 30 May 2015. The rate is only US$75 for all types of papers from all countries. For authors from under-developed countries, further reduced rate will be given depending on the country of origin of the corresponding author. To submit a paper, go to http://horizonepublishing.com/journals/index.php/PST/about/submissions Note:- The above announcement was posted at Plant Science Today journal site (link).

||RAPD analysis was done to determine intraspecific variability in Andrographis paniculata, a popular antipyretic and hepatoprotective drug used in traditional medicine in India. The accessions collected from parts of India and south-east Asia on molecular analysis revealed moderate variation within the species. Similarity measurement using UPGMA followed by cluster analysis resulted in 5 major groups based on geographical distribution that generally reflected expected trends between the genotypes. There were also important exceptions like AP-48, an accession from Thailand showing close resemblance to AP-38 collected from Tamil Nadu and AP-29 from Assam significantly diverse from the rest of the native genotypes. The results indicated that RAPD could be effectively used for genetic diversity analysis in wild species of prospective value as it is reliable, rapid and superior to those based on pedigree information.
