Sol Genomics Network (SGN)

The Sol Genomics Network (SGN) is a clade-oriented database dedicated to the biology of the Solanaceae family which includes a large number of closely related and many agronomically important species such as tomato, potato, tobacco, eggplant, pepper, and the ornamental Petunia hybrida. SGN is part…

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: Metabolic Coevolution in the Bacterial Symbiosis of Whiteflies and Related Plant Sap-Feeding Insects

Genomic decay is a common feature of intracellular bacteria that have entered into symbiosis with plant sap-feeding insects. This study of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci and two bacteria (Portiera aleyrodidarum and Hamiltonella defensa) cohoused in each host cell investigated whether the decay of Portiera metabolism genes is complemented by host and Hamiltonella genes, and compared the metabolic traits of the whitefly symbiosis with other sap-feeding insects (aphids, psyllids, and mealybugs).

Genes of viral origin in the Fopius arisanus genome

Fopius arisanus (Sonan) is a braconid wasp (subfamily Opiinae) and biological control agent of a broad range of tephritid fruit fly species, including the global pests Mediterranean fruit fly Ceratitis capitata and the Oriental fruit fly Bactrocera dorsalis. In an effort to create foundational genomic resources for this species, the complete genome and transcriptomes for several wasp life stages have been recently generated. Manual annotation of 55 viral genes and phylogenetic analysis revealed that F. arisanus has independently acquired a symbiotic virus related to alpha-nudiviruses.

Treehopper Immatures Project

The attached, linked files provide the characters and character matrix for publications describing immatures of the New World treehoppers (Membracidae, Melizoderdae, and Aetalionidae) by McKamey, Wallner, Porter, Wallace, and Phillips, or some combination thereof. Characters for each body part are assigned a number, and each character within each body part are assigned a letter, because additional characters (and states) are expected to be discovered with each newly examined tribe or subfamily and it is desirable to keep all characters pertaining to a body part together. With each publication, both of these linked files will be updated. Presently, the characters and matrix cover the tribes Amastrini and Thuridini (Smiliinae).

Data from: Metagenomic and near full-length 16S rRNA sequence data in support of the phylogenetic analysis of the rumen bacterial community in steers

Amplicon sequencing utilizing next-generation platforms has significantly transformed how research is conducted, specifically microbial ecology. However, primer and sequencing platform biases can confound or change the way scientists interpret these data. The Pacific Biosciences RSII instrument may also preferentially load smaller fragments, which may also…
