Abstract

The tomato leafminer, Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae), is a widespread devastating pest that develops on tomato and other economically important solanaceous crops. Current semiochemically-based management strategies still fail to significantly reduce damages and need to be improved. Here...

Abstract

Soybean (Glycine max) is one of Mississippi's most profitable agricultural crops. White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) consume soybeans each year because of the palatability and nutritional content of the plant and may cause economic damage to soybean producers. We estimated the amount of...

Abstract

PCR is a vital tool in modern biology; however, it can be costly owing to the price of commercial DNA purification kits. DNA purification is time consuming and rare material used for DNA template purification during transgenic mutant screening can be risky. There is, therefore, an urgent need to...

Abstract

The aphid, Aphis odinae (Van der Goot) (Hemiptera: Aphididae) is a polyphagous, occasional insect pest of cashew. A field survey was conducted from 2014 to 2015 in cashew plantations to record the incidence of aphid and its predators. Periodical sampling revealed, the occurrence of six species of...

Abstract

The complete coding sequences of three melon necrotic spot viruses (MNSVs) were obtained from viral metagenomics of stool samples from patients with acute gastroenteritis. These genomes were most similar to Spanish strains sequenced in 2003 and a novel MNSV watermelon strain in 2014.

Abstract

Rhizobium sp. strain TBD182, isolated from a novel hydroponics system, is an antagonistic bacterium that inhibits the mycelial growth of Fusarium oxysporum but does not eliminate the pathogen. We report the draft genome sequence of TBD182, which may contribute to elucidation of the molecular...

Abstract

A 2 064 bp upstream sequence of translation initiation site of OsHAK26, a member of KT/HAK/KUP potassium transporters gene family in rice was analyzed and that included a number of elements in response to the development, hormones, and abiotic stresses and common promoter elements of KT/HAK/KUP...

Abstract

Specialist herbivores feed on a restricted number of related plant species and may suffer food shortage if overexploitation leads to periodic defoliation of their food plants. The density, size and quality of food plants are important factors that determine the host plant choice of specialist...

Abstract

Arid soils represent a substantial carbonate pool and may participate in surface-atmosphere CO2 exchange via a diel cycle of carbonate dissolution and exsolution. We used a Keeling plot approach to determine the substrate δ13C of CO2 emitted from carbonate-dominated soils in the Mojave desert and...

Abstract

Secondary growth, the increase in girth of plant organs, is primarily driven by the vascular and cork cambium. In perennial dicotyledons and gymnosperms, it represents a major source of biomass accumulation in the form of wood. However, the molecular framework underlying secondary growth is largely ...
