The objective of this study is to apply FISH technique to detect chromosome aberrations in patients with genetic disease using both interphase and metaphases phases. DiGeorge syndrome (22q11 microdeletion), chronic leukemia (t(9; 22) (q34;q11.2)) and Patau's syndrome (trisomy 13) were used as case study to perform. Patient bone marrow or blood specimens were collected from Srinagarind Hospital, Faculty of Medicine, Khon Kaen University. The interphase and metaphase cells were prepared from bone marrow or blood by with and without cell culture at 37 °C for 72 hours, respectively. The interphase cells were used to detect BCR / ABL fusion gene due to t(9; 22) (q34;q11.2) using dual color dual fusion translocation probe and Patau's syndrome with trisomy 13 in using Vysis LSI 13 RB1 (13q14) probe respectively. The metaphase cells were used to detect microdeletion at 22q11 using amplification-deletion probe in DiGeorge syndrome patient. The achieve results were shown in this study. This demonstrated that the interphase cells without cell culture can be used to perform genetic testing. Especially, it is suitable for urgent diagnosis and monitor percentage of fusion gene in chronic leukemia patients. Whereas, the architecture of all chromosomes was demonstrated in the metaphase. In conclusion, FISH technique using interphase or metaphase cells as specimens can be used in a routine genetic testing of chromosomal abnormalities.</p> Jureeporn Kampan, Raksawan Deenonpoe Copyright (c) 2020 VRU Research and Development Journal Science and Technology https://so06.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/vrurdistjournal/article/view/241442 Wed, 29 Apr 2020 21:08:37 +0700 THE DEVELOPMENT OF KNOWLEDGE BANK SYSTEM FOR AGRICULTURAL https://so06.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/vrurdistjournal/article/view/241020 <p>This research’s objectives were 1) to design and develop agricultural knowledge bank system, and 2) to assess the efficiency of agricultural knowledge bank system.

The experimental design was a completely randomized design with 6 different treatments of fertilizer applications, with 3 replications for each of the 5 plants, including chemical fertilizer applications with vermicompost of 50, 100, 150, 200 and 250 grams per plant. Their height, the number of fruits, fruit weight per inflorescence, color, sweetness and firmness were measured and recorded. An analysis of variance using the F-test to determine the variability between the group means was conducted.</p> <p>The results revealed that:</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 1) Growing <em>Lycopersicon esculentum</em> with 50 grams of vermicompost per plant gave the maximum height at 103.40 centimeters with significant differences at the statistical level of 0.05.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 2) The production of <em>Lycopersicon esculentum</em> with 150 grams of vermicompost per plant gave the maximum number of fruits at 3.78 fruits per inflorescence, with significant differences at the statistical level of 0.05. Meanwhile, there were no effects of the vermicompost ratios on the freshness of the fruit per inflorescence. In addition, using 200 grams of vermicompost gave the maximum fruit size at 23.14 millimeters in width and 33.78 millimeters in length, with significant differences respectively at the level of 0.05. The chemical fertilizer gave the most sweetness as well as the most firmness at 9.05 brix and 1.85 newtons, with significant differences at the statistical level of 0.05. There were no effects of fertilizer ratios on fruit color. The use of 150 grams of vermicompost gave the maximum brightness value at 39.69. The chemical fertilizer gave the highest red color value of 34.15. In addition, the use of 100 grams of vermicompost gave the highest yellow color value of 27.38. Therefore, the use of vermicompost in the production of <em>Lycopersicon esculentum</em> can be considered to be a substitute for chemical fertilizers to reduce the cost of cultivation.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Kedkanok Wongchayanun, Komgrit Saeng-ngoen Copyright (c) 2020 VRU Research and Development Journal Science and Technology https://so06.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/vrurdistjournal/article/view/241046 Wed, 29 Apr 2020 21:16:27 +0700
