ARS-Media

    ARS-Media utilizes a linear programming optimization algorithm to determine the combination of salts, acids, and bases that satisfies any given target solution of ions allowing researchers to construct experimental designs that use ions as individual factors and, hence, experimentally determine ion-specific effects on biological responses.

    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.
