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: Knockdown of a metathoracic scent gland desaturase enhances the production of (E)‐4‐oxo‐2‐hexenal and suppresses female sexual attractiveness in the plant bug Adelphocoris suturalis
This study isolates and characterizes two new desaturase‐like genes, termed Asutdes1 and Asutdes2, from Adelphocoris suturalis, an important agricultural pest in China.
Data from: Whole-genome sequence data and analysis of a Staphylococcus aureus strain SJTUF_J27 isolated from seaweed
The complete genome sequence data of S. aureus SJTUF_J27 isolated from seaweed in China is reported.
Data from: Characterization of Adult Transcriptomes from the Omnivorous Lady Beetle Coleomegilla maculata Fed Pollen or Insect Egg Diet
Expressed genes from two individual sibling specimens of Coleomegilla maculata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae). One individual was fed only insect eggs as an adult, and one was fed only pollen as an adult. Two sequenced samples, total RNA from a single individual adult specimen of Coleomegilla maculata, a beneficial lady beetle common in agroecosystems and native to North America. One sample was an adult fed only insect eggs (carnivore diet) and one sample was an adult fed only pollen (plant-based diet); insects were reared from the same egg mass (siblings), fed identical diet while in larval stage.
The giant reed, Arundo donax, is a perennial grass species that has become an invasive plant in many countries. To establish a foundational molecular dataset, an llumina Hi-Seq protocol was used to sequence the transcriptome of actively growing shoots from an invasive genotype collected along the Rio Grande River, bordering Texas and Mexico. The assembly of 27,491 high confidence transcripts (≥200 bp) are reported with at least 70% coverage of known genes in other Poaceae species.
Gene 1.0 ST Array RNA expression analysis was performed on four somatic ovarian cell types: the granulosa cells (GCs) and theca cells (TCs) of the dominant follicle and the large luteal cells (LLCs) and small luteal cells (SLCs) of the corpus luteum. The normalized linear microarray data was deposited to the NCBI GEO repository (GSE83524). Subsequent ANOVA determined genes that were enriched (≥2 fold more) or decreased (≤−2 fold less) in one cell type compared to all three other cell types, and these analyzed and filtered datasets are presented as tables. Genes that were shared in enriched expression in both follicular cell types (GCs and TCs) or in both luteal cells types (LLCs and SLCs) are also reported.
Data from: Transcriptomic and bioinformatics analysis of the early time-course of the response to prostaglandin F2 alpha in the bovine corpus luteum
RNA expression analysis was performed on the corpus luteum tissue at five time points after prostaglandin F2 alpha treatment of midcycle cows using an Affymetrix Bovine Gene v1 Array. The normalized linear microarray data was uploaded to the NCBI GEO repository (GSE94069). Subsequent statistical analysis…
Data from: Analysis of expressed sequence tags from a significant livestock pest, the stable fly (Stomoxys calcitrans), identifies transcripts with a putative role in chemosensation and sex determination.
This data set was obtained from pyrosequencing of stable fly immature and adult specimens, comprising genes expressed at these stages.
What is the role of pathogens in Honey Bee Colony Collapse Disorder? Deep RNA sequencing was used to study microbial diversity and seek answers.
