  • Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae (PSA) Isolates from Recent Bacterial Canker of Kiwifruit Outbreaks Belong to the Same Genetic Lineage 

    Mazzaglia, Angelo; Studholme, David J.; Taratufolo, Maria C.; Cai, Rongman; Almeida, Nalvo F.; Goodman, Tokia; Guttman, David S.; Vinatzer, Boris A.; Balestra, Giorgio M. (PLOS, 2012-05-09)
    Intercontinental spread of emerging plant diseases is one of the most serious threats to world agriculture. One emerging disease is bacterial canker of kiwi fruit (Actinidia deliciosa and A. chinensis) caused by Pseudomonas ...
  • Visualization of Glutamine Transporter Activities in Living Cells Using Genetically Encoded Glutamine Sensors 

    Gruenwald, Katrin; Holland, John Todd; Stromberg, Verlyn; Ahmad, Altaf; Watcharakichkorn, Daisy; Okumoto, Sakiko (PLOS, 2012-06-14)
    Glutamine plays a central role in the metabolism of critical biological molecules such as amino acids, proteins, neurotransmitters, and glutathione. Since glutamine metabolism is regulated through multiple enzymes and ...
  • Comparative Genomics of Multiple Strains of Pseudomonas cannabina pv. alisalensis, a Potential Model Pathogen of Both Monocots and Dicots 

    Sarris, Panagiotis F.; Trantas, Emmanouil A.; Baltrus, David A.; Bull, Carolee T.; Wechter, William Patrick; Yan, Shuangchun; Ververidis, Filippos; Almeida, Nalvo F.; Jones, Corbin D.; Dangl, Jeffery L.; Panopoulos, Nickolas J.; Vinatzer, Boris A.; Goumas, Dimitrios E. (PLOS, 2013-03-28)
    Comparative genomics of closely related pathogens that differ in host range can provide insights into mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions and host adaptation. Furthermore, sequencing of multiple strains with the same ...
  • First Insights into the Genetic Diversity of the Pinewood Nematode in Its Native Area Using New Polymorphic Microsatellite Loci 

    Mallez, Sophie; Castagnone, Chantal; Espada, Margarida; Vieira, Paulo; Eisenback, Jonathan D.; Mota, Manuel; Guillemaud, Thomas; Castagnone-Sereno, Philippe (PLOS, 2013-03-15)
    The pinewood nematode, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus, native to North America, is the causative agent of pine wilt disease and among the most important invasive forest pests in the East-Asian countries, such as Japan and ...
  • Quantifying Microstegium vimineum Seed Movement by Non-Riparian Water Dispersal Using an Ultraviolet-Marking Based Recapture Method 

    Tekiela, Daniel R.; Barney, Jacob N. (PLOS, 2013-09-12)
    Microstegium vimineum is a shade tolerant annual C4 invasive grass in the Eastern US, which has been shown to negatively impact species diversity and succession in hardwood forests. To date, empirical studies have shown ...
  • Wind-driven spume droplet production and the transport of Pseudomonas syringae from aquatic environments 

    Pietsch, Renee B.; Grothe, Hinrich; Hanlon, Regina; Powers, Craig W.; Jung, Sunghwan; Ross, Shane D.; Schmale, David G. (PeerJ, 2018-09-26)
    Natural aquatic environments such as oceans, lakes, and rivers are home to a tremendous diversity of microorganisms. Some may cross the air-water interface within droplets and become airborne, with the potential to impact ...
  • Coordinated Sampling of Microorganisms Over Freshwater and Saltwater Environments Using an Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) and a Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) 

    Powers, Craig W.; Hanlon, Regina; Grothe, Hinrich; Prussin, Aaron J. II; Marr, Linsey C.; Schmale, David G. III (Frontiers, 2018-08-15)
