Identification of maize genes associated with host plant resistance or susceptibility to Aspergillus flavus infection and aflatoxin accumulation.
(Public Library of Science, 5/14/2012)
BACKGROUND: Aspergillus flavus infection and aflatoxin contamination of maize pose negative impacts in agriculture and health. Commercial maize hybrids are generally susceptible to this fungus. Significant levels of host ...
Quantitative field testing Heterodera glycines from metagenomic DNA samples isolated directly from soil under agronomic production.
(Public Library of Science, 2/24/2014)
A quantitative PCR procedure targeting the Heterodera glycines ortholog of the Caenorhabditis elegans uncoordinated-78 gene was developed. The procedure estimated the quantity of H. glycines from metagenomic DNA samples ...
Quantitative field testing Rotylenchulus reniformis DNA from metagenomic samples isolated directly from soil.
(Public Library of Science, 12/16/2011)
A quantitative PCR procedure targeting the ?-tubulin gene determined the number of Rotylenchulus reniformis Linford & Oliveira 1940 in metagenomic DNA samples isolated from soil. Of note, this outcome was in the presence ...
