Data from: Prospecting for viral natural enemies of the fire ant Solenopsis invicta in Argentina
Metagenomics and next generation sequencing were employed to discover new virus natural enemies of the fire ant, *Solenopsis invicta* Buren in its native range (i.e., Formosa, Argentina) with the ultimate goal of testing and releasing new viral pathogens into U.S. *S. invicta* populations to provide natural, sustainable control of this ant.
Plant Expression Database
[NOTE: PLEXdb is no longer available online. Oct 2019.] PLEXdb (Plant Expression Database) is a unified gene expression resource for plants and plant pathogens. PLEXdb is a genotype to phenotype, hypothesis building information warehouse, leveraging highly parallel expression data with seamless portals to related genetic, physical, and pathway data.
Leptinotarsa decemlineata genome annotations v0.5.3
This dataset presents the Leptinotarsa decemlineata gene set BCM_v_0.5.3, which was generated computationally. RNA-Seq data was used with additional protein homology data for a MAKER automated annotation of the Leptinotarsa decemlineata genome assembly 1.0.
Data from: Analysis of expressed sequence tags from a significant livestock pest, the stable fly (Stomoxys calcitrans), identifies transcripts with a putative role in chemosensation and sex determination.
This data set was obtained from pyrosequencing of stable fly immature and adult specimens, comprising genes expressed at these stages.
Expressed Sequence Tags from the Ciliate Protozoan Parasite Ichthyophthirius Multifiliis
Researchers sequenced 10,368 expressed sequence tags (EST) clones using a normalized cDNA library made from pooled samples of the trophont, tomont, and theront life-cycle stages, and generated 9,769 sequences (94.2% success rate). Post-sequencing processing led to 8,432 high quality sequences. Clustering analysis of these ESTs allowed identification of 4,706 unique sequences containing 976 contigs and 3,730 singletons.
Data from: Pathogen webs in collapsing honey bee colonies
What is the role of pathogens in Honey Bee Colony Collapse Disorder? Deep RNA sequencing was used to study microbial diversity and seek answers.
