The baseline surveillance on rabies in Sylhet was evaluated for the first time and in Rangpur division was checked for the second time in Bangladesh from June 2014 to January 2015. A semi-structured questionnaire was applied on total of 600 respondents including common people, school teachers, people’s representatives, political leaders, doctors, nurses and medical technicians from selected households. Of the respondents on average 91% know about rabies and regionally 93% in Sylhet division and 89% in Rangpur division. This survey highlighted education is a key of awareness about rabies and the level of educated people found higher in Sylhet (96.33%) than Rangpur (88.33%). Still the practice of traditional healer use comparatively higher in Rangpur than Sylhet, and which is 8.8% and 5.13% respectively. Almost 100% of the respondents of different categories seek treatment of rabies from the hospital. Majority of them know about the fatality of rabies and believed that rabies could be prevented by vaccination program. Given these findings, there is a clear need for specific educational initiatives involving the local population and the public health entities, with the primary aim of contributing to the prevention of rabies.

One of the most important questions regarding the emergent mechanical strength of plant cell walls is: How do the mechanical properties of the individual components within the cell wall matrix compare to one another and evolve during elongation. In this research, the unique capability of the AFM was used to measure the mechanical properties of onion and celery epidermis on the nanometer scale. The Peak Force Quantitative Nano-mechanical Mapping (Peak Force QNM) technique was utilized to obtain images of the onion microfibrils where quantitative values of the mechanical properties provide the contrast for the image. For the first time, a series of high resolution images of intact onion microfibrils were taken to study the stress relaxation of individual fibrils after applying strain to the epidermis. This study was repeated to investigate the individual fibrils nanoscale movement, or possible reorientation, after mechanical elongation of the onion epidermis. The next step involved taking a sequence of images which were used to investigate the effect of pectin on microfibrils. The literature showed that pectin could inhibit the unfolding of Xyloglucan chains . This was studied by adding Pectate lyase to both onion and celery epidermis wall to cut the polygalcturonic acid chains.
