This gene set (OGS v1.0) combines both automatically predicted and manually curated gene models. This community effort produced 530 manually curated gene models across developmental, physiological, RNAi regulatory, and immunity-related pathways. As previously shown in the pea aphid, RNAi machinery genes putatively involved in the microRNA pathway have been specifically duplicated. A comprehensive transcriptome enabled us to identify a number of gene families that are either missing or misassembled in the draft genome.
Diaci1.9 is interim version of the Diaphorina citri psyllid genome based on Pacbio long reads.
The Diaphorina citri MCOT v1.0 transcriptome is a genome independent transcriptome assembly that provides a comprehensive set of gene models and was performed with the MCOT pipeline where transcripts from Maker, Cufflinks, Trinity and Oases pipelines are combined.
The International Psyllid Genome Consortium has generated a genome assembly Diaci 1.1 of the Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina citri).
Effects of tannin in dairy cow diets and land application of manure on soil gas fluxes and nitrogen dynamics
This experiment was designed to determine if tannin concentration and nitrogen (N) content of field-applied dairy cow manure influences greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from soil, soil N mineralization, and plant productivity. The data presented include experimental design, soil physical characteristics, gas fluxes, soil nitrogen at 0-10 cm depth, soil nitrogen at 10-20 cm depth, chemical characteristics of dairy manure, and crop yield and biomass characteristics.
This dataset corresponds with two published studies conducted on loess covered catchments in northern Mississippi, USA within the Goodwin Creek Experimental Watershed that contain extensive networks of soil pipes and corresponding collapse features. These loess soils contain fragipan layers that were found to perch water, thereby initiating the piping processes. The dataset contains data from two papers, specifically these include: (i) the spatial distribution of soil pipe collapses and their size measurements from the Wilson et al. (2015) paper, and (ii) hydrologic measurements of perched water tables on hillslopes, water levels of selected soil pipe locations, and precipitation from the Wilson et al. (2017) paper.
Data from: Host specificity of Aphelinus species considered for introduction to control Diuraphis noxia
These data are results of laboratory experiments on host specificity of ten populations of seven species from two species complexes in the genus Aphelinus. Host specificity was not related to host plant species or the phylogenetic relatedness of the aphids or the parasitoids. From these results, we conclude that A. hordei is an excellent candidate for introduction into the USA to control D. noxia.
Data from: Soil Water Holding Capacity Mitigates Downside Risk and Volatility in US Rainfed Maize: Time to Invest in Soil Organic Matter?
This dataset includes county-level annual data on maize (Zea mays L.) yield, soil physical and chemical characteristics, and mean weather data for 2000 through 2014 for IL, MI, MN and PA. The data were aggregated from public databases, including NASS Quick Stats (https://quickstats.nass.usda.gov/), NOAA…
