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.

    Data from: Draft genome of the rice coral Montipora capitata obtained from linked-read sequencing

      THIS DATA HAS BEEN UPDATED: PLEASE SEE http://dx.doi.org/10.15482/USDA.ADC/1503958 FOR THE UPDATED VERSION. 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.

      Data from: First Report of Squash vein yellowing virus in Watermelon in Guatemala

        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: 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.
