Data from: Biological control of boxwood blight by Pseudomonas protegens recovered from recycling irrigation systems

    A total of 1547 bacterial strains recovered from recycling irrigation systems were evaluated *in vitro* and *in planta* for their biological control efficacy against boxwood (*Buxus* spp.) blight caused by *Calonectria pseudonaviculata* (*Cps*), an emerging fungal disease in the United States. *Pseudomonas protegens* strains produced antifungal secondary metabolites that reduced *Cps* growth and infection.

    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.

      National Microbial Germplasm Program

        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.
