Accurate Strand-Specific Quantification of Viral RNA
The presence of full-length complements of viral genomic RNA is a hallmark of RNA virus replication within an infected cell. As such, methods for detecting and measuring specific strands of viral RNA in infected cells and ...
Habitat preferences and phenology of Ochlerotatus triseriatus and Aedes albopictus (Diptera : Culicidae) in southwestern Virginia
(Oxford University Press, 2003-07-01)
Recently, the number of reported human cases of La Crosse encephalitis, an illness caused by mosquito-borne La Crosse virus (LAC), has increased in southwestern Virginia, resulting in a need for better understanding of the ...
A standard cytogenetic photomap for the mosquito Anopheles stephensi (Diptera : Culicidae): Application for physical mapping
(Oxford University Press, 2006-09)
To facilitate physical genome mapping, we have developed a new cytogenetic photomap for Anopheles stephensi (Liston) (Diptera: Culicidae), an important malaria vector in Asia. The high-resolution images of the ovarian ...
La Crosse encephalitis virus habitat associations in Nicholas County, West Virginia
(Oxford University Press, 2000-07-01)
Aedes triseriatus (Say) population density patterns and La Crosse encephalitis virus infection rates were evaluated in relation to a variety of habitat parameters over a 14-wk period. Ovitraps and landing collections were ...
Host plants and associated trophobionts of the weaver ants Oecophylla spp. (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)
Weaver ants (Oecophylla spp.) are often found on plants with insect symbionts (trophobionts), but the extent of such associations is not known. Examination of literature records of weaver ant host plants from 1900 to 2006 ...
Comparative analysis of the global transcriptome of Anopheles funestus from Mali, West Africa.
BACKGROUND: Anopheles funestus is a principal vector of malaria across much of tropical Africa and is considered one of the most efficient of its kind, yet studies of this species have lagged behind those of its broadly ...
