Annotation Data from: Genome Resources of Four Distinct Pathogenic Races Within Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum that Cause Vascular Wilt Disease of Cotton

    Whole genome sequence (WGS) based identifications are being increasingly used by regulatory and public health agencies to facilitate the detection, investigation, and control of pathogens and pests. Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum is a significant vascular wilt pathogen of cultivated cotton and consists of several pathogenic races that are not each other’s closest phylogenetic relatives. We have developed WGS assemblies for isolates of F. oxysporum f. sp. vasinfectum race 1 (FOV1), race 4 (FOV4), race 5 (FOV5), and race 8 (FOV8) using a combination of Nanopore (MinION) and Illumina sequencing technology (Mi-Seq).

    Data from: Attraction, mobility, and preference by Lasioderma serricorne (F.) (Coleoptera: Ptinidae) to microbially-mediated volatile emissions by two species of fungi in stored grain

      Our goals were to 1) isolate, and culture two fungal morphotypes, 2) characterize the volatile emissions from grain inoculated by each fungal morphotype (Aspergillus flavus or Fusarium spp.) compared to uninoculated and sanitized grain, and 3) understand how MVOCs from each morphotype affects mobility, attraction, and preference by L. serricorne.

      Functional annotation for 15 diverse arthropod genomes

        We present the annotation results of 15 arthropod proteomes using an open source, open access and containerized pipeline for genome-scale functional annotation of insect proteomes and apply it to a diverse range of arthropod species.

        Data from: Skeletal Muscle Sexual Dimorphism in Mice

          File contains transcriptomics results for gastrocnemius (GA) and soleus (SOL) muscles from adult mice, previously fed a 45% (by energy) high fat diet for ~13 wk. The Supplemental Material also contains gene pathway analysis results (e.g., GO, HMDB), transcripts differentially expressed but with shared or disparate patterns in GA vs. SOL (Venn diagrams), and correlations between summed muscle weights vs. body weight or lean body mass.

          Genomes & Annotations Data: Genome Resources for the Ex-type of Phytophthora citricola, and well-authenticated isolates of P. hibernalis, P. nicotianae and P. syringae

            Four draft Phytophthora genomes resources are described for the Ex-type of P. citricola BL34 (P0716 WPC) (118 contigs for 50 Mb), and well-authenticated specimens of P. syringae BL57G (P10330 WPC) (591 contigs for 75 Mb), P. hibernalis BL41G (P3822 WPC) (404 contigs for 84 Mb), and P. nicotianae BL162 (P6303 WPC) (3984 contigs for 108 Mb) generated with MinION long-read High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) technology.

            Data from: Antigenic distance between North American swine and human seasonal H3N2 influenza A viruses as an indication of zoonotic risk to humans

              An investigation of antigenic relationships between North American swine H3N2 influenza A viruses (IAV) and human seasonal vaccine strains was conducted to assess the zoonotic risk to humans. Human seasonal vaccine strains were cultured on MDCK cells or eggs and the HA gene was verified by sequencing on a Sanger method at National Animal Disease Center (NADC). A consensus HA sequence was generated using Geneious Software.
