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: Condition‐dependent co‐regulation of genomic clusters of virulence factors in the grapevine trunk pathogen Neofusicoccum parvum
The capability of the ascomycete Neofusicoccum parvum to colonize woody tissue, combined with the secretion of phytotoxic compounds, is thought to underlie its pathogenicity and virulence. The repertoire of virulence factors and their transcriptional dynamics as the fungus feeds on different substrates and colonizes the woody stem are described and a highly contiguous genome is assembled and annotated using single‐molecule real‐time DNA sequencing.
Effort Versus Reward: Preparing samples for fungal community characterization in high-throughput sequencing surveys of soils
This data set consists of four data files. The FASTA file, Representative OTU sequences.fa, contains representative sequences from the operational taxonomic units (OTUs) shown in the OTU table. FASTA files can be opened in simple text editors, and sequences can be aligned using the BLAST tool (http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi) or open source software, like AliView (http://www.ormbunkar.se/aliview/). There are two Excel data files: OTU table and heatmaps.xlsx and Diversity Indexes.xlsx. The former contains the raw abundance data for the observed OTUs from the different experimental sites. The latter is a breakdown of various diversity indices that are grouped based on experimental characteristics, such as extraction volume, extraction method, etc. Excel_Archive.zip is a compressed version of the two Excel data files that have been converted to more archival-friendly formats using Excel Archival Tool.
Data from: Clarireedia: A new fungal genus comprising four pathogenic species responsible for dollar spot disease of turfgrass
These datasets provide the phylogenetic evidence from three nucleotide sequence markers (CaM, ITS and Mcm7) that underlie the establishment of the new fungal genus Clarireedia, which includes four species that cause turfgrass dollar spot disease.
The goal of the National Microbial Germplasm Program is to ensure that the genetic diversity of agriculturally important microorganisms is maintained to enhance and increase agricultural efficiency and profitability. The program collects, authenticates, and characterizes potentially useful microbial germplasm; preserves microbial genetic diversity; and facilitates distribution and utilization of microbial germplasm for research and industry.
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: Data on morphological features of mycosis induced by Colletotrichum nymphaeae and Lecanicillium longisporum on citrus orthezia scale
Symptoms of mycosis induced by two native fungal entomopathogens of the citrus orthezia scale, Praelongorthezia praelonga (Hemiptera: Ortheziidae), an important pest of citrus orchards, are described.
