  • Comparative genomics of Pseudomonas syringae pathovar tomato reveals novel chemotaxis pathways associated with motility and plant pathogenicity 

    Clarke, Christopher R.; Hayes, Byron W.; Runde, Brendan J.; Markel, Eric; Swingle, Bryan M.; Vinatzer, Boris A. (PeerJ, 2016-10-25)
    The majority of bacterial foliar plant pathogens must invade the apoplast of host plants through points of ingress, such as stomata or wounds, to replicate to high population density and cause disease. How pathogens navigate ...
  • Herbicide injury induces DNA methylome alterations in Arabidopsis 

    Kim, G; Clarke, CR; Larose, H; Tran, HT; Haak, DC; Zhang, L; Askew, S; Barney, J; Westwood, JH (Peerj Inc, 2017-07-20)
    The emergence of herbicide-resistant weeds is a major threat facing modern agriculture. Over 470 weedy-plant populations have developed resistance to herbicides. Traditional evolutionary mechanisms are not always sufficient ...
  • Climatic niche shifts are common in introduced plants 

    Atwater, Daniel Z.; Ervine, Carissa; Barney, Jacob N. (Nature, 2017-12-04)
    Our understanding of how climate influences species distributions and our ability to assess the risk of introduced species depend on the assumption that species’ climatic niches remain stable across space and time. While ...
  • Sequencing and De Novo Assembly of the Toxicodendron radicans (Poison Ivy) Transcriptome 

    Weisberg, Alexandra J.; Kim, Gunjune; Westwood, James H.; Jelesko, John G. (MDPI, 2017-11-10)
    Contact with poison ivy plants is widely dreaded because they produce a natural product called urushiol that is responsible for allergenic contact delayed-dermatitis symptoms lasting for weeks. For this reason, the catchphrase ...
