The genosim package simulates genotypes, breeding values, and phenotypes; simulates DNA sequence read depth (numbers of A and B alleles); and resolves SNP conflicts between parent and offspring genotypes.

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: Genome Sequence of the Thermotolerant Foodborne Pathogen Salmonella enterica Serovar Senftenberg ATCC 43845 and Phylogenetic Analysis of Loci Encoding Increased Protein Quality Control Mechanisms

Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica bacteria are important foodborne pathogens with major economic impact. Some isolates exhibit increased heat tolerance, a concern for food safety. Analysis of a finished-quality genome sequence of an isolate commonly used in heat resistance studies, S. enterica subsp. enterica serovar Senftenberg…

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.
