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: 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.

      Data from: Draft genome sequence of Xylaria sp., the causal agent of taproot decline of soybean in the southern United States

        The draft genome of *Xylaria* sp. isolate MSU_SB201401, causal agent of taproot decline of soybean in the southern U.S., is presented here. The genome assembly was 56.7 Mb in size with an L50 of 246. A total of 10,880 putative protein-encoding genes were predicted, including 647 genes encoding carbohydrate-active enzymes and 1053 genes encoding secreted proteins.

        BAR- The Bio-Analytic Resource for Plant Biology

          BAR is a collection of web-based, user-friendly tools for exploring, visualizing, and analyzing large datasets from plants. Supported are expression data, Next-Gen sequence data, protein-protein interactions, polymorphisms / conservation, and protein 3-D structures.

          GenSAS v5.1: A Web-Based Platform for Structural and Functional Annotation and Curation of Genomes

            The Genome Sequence Annotation Server (GenSAS) is an online platform that provides a pipeline for whole genome structural and functional annotation. Users can upload genome sequences and select from a variety of tools for repeat masking, prediction of gene models and other structural features as well as functional annotation tools. GenSAS integrates with JBrowse and Apollo to provide visualization and editing.

            Gerris buenoi Genome Assembly 1.0

              The Baylor College of Medicine recently sequenced and annotated the Gerris buenoi genome as part of the i5k pilot project. This dataset presents the Gerris buenoi genome v1.0. This assembly version is the pre-release version, prior to filtering and quality control by the National Center for Biotechnology Information's GenBank resource. The corresponding genome assembly in [GCA_001010745.1](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/assembly/GCA_001010745.1/)
