Publication of research papers are broadly indicative of the research works being conducted in a particular field. Besides, it also helps and directs further works to be conducted. A study conducted by Qin Juan, Yuan Lian-wei and XIANG Zhong-Huai analysing the research works in various fields of sericulture across the world is published in Science of Sericulture, 2011, Volume 37, No.3, pages 486-494, in Chinese language. Authors make an attempt to appreciate the efforts made in the original paper, for the benefit of readers of Indian Silk. Indian Silk acknowledges with gratitude, the permission granted by the publishers of Science of Sericulture to publish the extracts and data.

The contributions of Central Sericultural Research & Training Institute, (CSR&TI), Mysore, India, in undertaking significant research and development (R&D) efforts in the field of sericulture are discussed. The institute made significant contributions through evolving high yielding mulberry varieties and silkworm hybrids besides popularizing them in the field. It contributed to introducing, encouraging, and promoting science and technology developments related ,to mulberry sericulture in the country. The institute and its activities continued to grow at a significant pace after its establishment in the state in 1961. It expanded to spread to 130 acres from 53 acres initial stages, with 16 well-equipped modern laboratories grouped under five major divisions, along with a large and effective extension network including RSRS, RECs, Sub-units, and Breeding Centers.

National Conference on 'Sericulture Innovations: Before and Beyond' was organized at the Central Sericulture Research & Training Institute, Mysore on January 28-29, 2011. Smt. Panabaka Lakshmi, Union Minister of State for Textiles, Govt. of India, the chief guest, inaugurated the National Conference by lightening the lamp. In her welcome address, Smt. M. Sathiyavathy, IAS, Member Secretary, Central Silk Board, Bangalore pointed out the objectives of the constitution of the Board and also establishment of this premier institute. She hoped that the National Conference will come out with tangible and meaningful results. Smt. Panabaka Lakshmi informed that the initiatives to bring activities like mulberry plantation and cocoon production under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana are sure to benefit the stakeholders. On the occasion, Special Issue of Indian Silk brought out to mark the Golden Jubilee of the Institute.

Silkworm is a live machine that converts the leaf protein into silk protein. The quality of leaf influences greatly the growth and health of silkworm on one hand and the quality of cocoon and silk on the other. The author dwells upon this interesting aspect to conclude, healthy leaves leads to healthy larvae and cocoons.

With the advancement in breeding science, molecular approaches are being preferred over the conventional one to evolve superior genotypes of mulberry, as it would be more accurate in defining the QTLs, taking less time, labour and resource. The authors discuss here the advantages of molecular breeding in mulberry improvement programmes.

In this paper, spun silk yarn produced from mulberry, muga, tasar waste and Red eri and white eri cocoons on worsted system of spinning mill, three varieties of plain fabric were woven on power loom by using 2/60sNm in warp, 2/60sNm, 2/80sNm and 2/120sNm yarns in the weft . The shrinkage properties of yarn and fabric have been tested according to international standard testing methods. In this paper, results of investigations of shrinkage properties of yarn and fabric have been presented as per the requirement of industry. Results have been compared among the each variety of yarn and fabric. The results of the investigation thoroughly discussed. The results indicate that variety of silk, weft yarn count and interaction effect are significantly affecting the spun silk yarn and fabric shrinkage properties.

There are a number of factors involved in the successful oviposition during the process of egg production. Fecundity enhancing substances, identified as 'prostaglandins' are believed to be involved in maturation of sperm and also stimulating the process of oviposition. The mating partner should be reproductively competent for successful mating, and the mating should be conducted in appropriate time. Due to the fusion of abdominal segment with the ovipositor or blocking or fusion of scent glands, the pheromone is not produced from the paired lateral glands 'saculi laterals' of the last abdominal segment of the virgin for attracting male moths for oviposition. It was found that there was no significant difference in fecundity among the second day mated female moths when compared to their freshly mated counterparts.
