    • Quantitative field testing Heterodera glycines from metagenomic DNA samples isolated directly from soil under agronomic production. 

      Li, Yan; Lawrence, Gary W.; Lu, Shien; Balbalian, Clarissa; Klink, Vincent P. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant PathologyDepartment of Biological SciencesCollege of Agriculture and Life SciencesCollege of Arts and Sciences, 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. 

      Showmaker, Kurt; Lawrence, Gary W.; Lu, Shien; Balbalian, Clarissa; Klink, Vincent P. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant PathologyDepartment of Biological SciencesCollege of Agriculture and Life SciencesCollege of Arts and SciencesBost Extension Center, 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 ...
    • The reproductive biology and larvae of the first tadpole-bearing frog, Limnonectes larvaepartus. 

      Kusrini, Mirza D.; Rowley, Jodi J. L.; Khairunnisa, Luna R.; Shea, Glenn M.; Altig, Ronald (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesCollege of Arts and Sciences, 1/2/2015)
      Most of the reproductive modes of frogs include an exotrophic tadpole, but a number of taxa have some form of endotrophic development that lacks a feeding tadpole stage. The dicroglossid frog genus Limnonectes ranges from ...
    • The role of demography and markets in determining deforestation rates near Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar. 

      Brooks, Christopher P.; Holmes, Christopher; Kramer, Karen; Barnett, Barry; Keitt, Timothy H. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesDepartment of Agricultural EconomicsCollege of Arts and SciencesCollege of Agriculture and Life Sciences, 6/17/2009)
      The highland forests of Madagascar are home to some of the world's most unique and diverse flora and fauna and to some of its poorest people. This juxtaposition of poverty and biodiversity is continually reinforced by rapid ...
    • The site specific demethylation in the 5'-regulatory area of NMDA receptor 2B subunit gene associated with CIE-induced up-regulation of transcription. 

      Qiang, Mei; Denny, Ashley; Chen, Jiguo; Ticku, Maharaj K.; Yan, Bo; Henderson, George (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesCollege of Arts and Sciences, 1/20/2010)
      BACKGROUND: The NMDA receptor represents a particularly important site of ethanol action in the CNS. We recently reported that NMDA receptor 2B (NR2B) gene expression was persistently up-regulated following chronic ...
    • Transcriptome-Based Differentiation of Closely-Related Miscanthus Lines
