The Sol Genomics Network (SGN) is a clade-oriented database dedicated to the biology of the Solanaceae family which includes a large number of closely related and many agronomically important species such as tomato, potato, tobacco, eggplant, pepper, and the ornamental Petunia hybrida. SGN is part…
Data from: Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of the USDA Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) Germplasm Collections Using GBSpoly
Population structure and genetic diversity of 417 USDA sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) accessions originating from 8 broad geographical regions (Africa, Australia, Caribbean, Central America, Far East, North America, Pacific Islands, and South America) were determined using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) identified with a genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) protocol, GBSpoly, optimized for highly heterozygous and polyploid species.
Gene models for protein-coding genes in the genome of the rice coral Montipora capitata, Hawaii Island. Annotation was performed with Augustus v3.3.1, using RNA-seq data as extrinsic evidence. Gene structures (.gff), coding sequences (_cds.fas), and amino acid sequences (_aa.fas) are provided.
The NAL Agricultural Thesaurus (NALT) was first released by the National Agricultural Library in 2002, with in-depth coverage of agriculture, biology, and related disciplines. It contains over 135,000 terms, including 63,000 cross references, and is arranged into 17 subject categories which are used to…
Data from: Genomic Sequence of Campylobacter jejuni subsp. jejuni HS:19 Penner Serotype Reference Strain RM3420
Campylobacter jejuni subsp. jejuni infections are a leading cause of foodborne gastroenteritis and the most prevalent antecedent to Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). Penner serotype HS:19 is among several capsular types shown to be markers for GBS. This study describes the genome of C. jejuni subsp. jejuni HS:19 Penner reference strain RM3420.
Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) and other cucurbits are important crops grown in Guatemala for local consumption and export. Four samplings of crowns, peduncles, and/or leaves of symptomatic plants were made in March and April 2015. Total RNA was extracted from symptomatic plant tissue and tested by RT-PCR for SqVYV, CYSDV, PRSV, and/or begomoviruses. This is the first report of SqVYV infecting watermelon in Central America.
Data from: Genome Sequence of the Thermotolerant Foodborne Pathogen Salmonella enterica Serovar Senftenberg ATCC 43845 and Phylogenetic Analysis of Loci Encoding Increased Protein Quality Control Mechanisms
Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica bacteria are important foodborne pathogens with major economic impact. Some isolates exhibit increased heat tolerance, a concern for food safety. Analysis of a finished-quality genome sequence of an isolate commonly used in heat resistance studies, S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Senftenberg…
Data from: Draft genome sequences of eight streptogramin-resistant Enterococcus species isolates from animal and environmental sources in the United States
Draft genome sequences of five Enterococcus faecium, two Enterococcus hirae, and one Enterococcus gallinarum from enviromental sources and chicken carcass rinsates. Isolates were selected for their resistance to the streptogramin antibiotic, Quinupristin-Dalfopristin and were all collected in the United States between 2001 and 2004. Antimicrobial resistance genes were identified conferring resistance to the macrolide-lincosamide-streptogramins, aminoglycosides, tetracycline, beta-lactams, and glycopeptides.
Data from: Sporobolus stapfianus: Insights into desiccation tolerance in the resurrection grasses from linking transcriptomics to metabolomics
Non-targeted metabolomics, combined with transcriptomics via a NimbleGen array platform, are used to study how gene expression and metabolite profiles can be linked to generate a more detailed mechanistic appreciation of the cellular response to both desiccation and rehydration in the C4 resurrection grass, Sporobolus stapfianus Gandoger, as a member of a group of important forage grasses.
