New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal claimed Sunday that the Lok Sabha election exit polls predicting a major victory for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were designed to prevent Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and BJP functionaries from turning against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, ahead of the verdict on 4 June.He said that it was being suggested that the EVMs were tampered with, and therefore, the parties of the INDIA bloc needed to be particularly alert on getting the numbers matched with VVPAT slips. “There is no point crying hoarse later.

Scientists find the largest known genome inside a small plant – Times of India

Last year, Jaume Pellicer led a team of fellow scientists into a forest on Grande Terre, an island east of Australia. They were in search of a fern called Tmesipteris oblanceolata.

"It doesn't catch the eye," said Pellicer, who works at the Botanical Institute of Barcelona in Spain."You would probably step on it and not even realize it." The scientists eventually managed to spot the nondescript fern. When Pellicer and his colleagues studied it in the lab, they discovered it held an extraordinary secret. Tmesipteris oblanceolata has the largest known genome on Earth. As the researchers described in a study published Friday, the fern's cells contain more than 50 times as much DNA as ours do.
