Data from: Secretome data from Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger cultivated in submerged and sequential fermentation methods

    The cultivation procedure and the fungal strain applied for enzyme production may influence levels and profile of the proteins produced. The proteomic analysis data presented here provide critical information to compare proteins secreted by Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger when cultivated through submerged and sequential fermentation processes, using steam-explosion sugarcane bagasse as inducer for enzyme production.

    Data from: Draft genome sequence of Xylaria sp., the causal agent of taproot decline of soybean in the southern United States

      The draft genome of *Xylaria* sp. isolate MSU_SB201401, causal agent of taproot decline of soybean in the southern U.S., is presented here. The genome assembly was 56.7 Mb in size with an L50 of 246. A total of 10,880 putative protein-encoding genes were predicted, including 647 genes encoding carbohydrate-active enzymes and 1053 genes encoding secreted proteins.

      Maize-GAMER: GO Annotations, Methods, Evaluation and Review

        maize-GAMER is a collaborative project to improve the status of gene functional annotation in maize (*Zea mays*). The project has three main areas of focus, namely * Design a pipeline for the functional annotation of maize genes. * Use manually curated test data to evaluate the annotations and generate a best subset of annotations for use * Design a user friendly review system for the community to provide feedback and endorsements of the annotations

        BrAPI

          The Breeding API (BrAPI) Project is an effort to create a RESTful specification to enable interoperability among plant breeding databases. The Breeding API specifies a standard interface for plant phenotype/genotype databases to serve their data to crop breeding applications. It is a shared, open API, to be used by all data providers and data consumers who wish to participate.

          Genes of viral origin in the Fopius arisanus genome

            *Fopius arisanus* (Sonan) is a braconid wasp (subfamily Opiinae) and biological control agent of a broad range of tephritid fruit fly species, including the global pests Mediterranean fruit fly *Ceratitis capitata* and the Oriental fruit fly *Bactrocera dorsalis*. In an effort to create foundational genomic resources for this species, the complete genome and transcriptomes for several wasp life stages have been recently generated. Manual annotation of 55 viral genes and phylogenetic analysis revealed that *F. arisanus* has independently acquired a symbiotic virus related to alpha-nudiviruses.
