The study of existing cores collected across the Wilkes Land margin provides us with a better understanding of the sediment distribution and processes across this margin during the Holocene, and during Pleistocene glacial and interglacial cycles. Holocene depositional rates are high in deep (>1000m) inner-shelf basins where diatomaceous ooze is deposited at(More)
Cladosporium cladosporioides is a dematiaceous fungus with coloured mycelia and conidia due to the presence of dark pigments. The purpose of this study was to characterize the dark pigments synthetized by Cladosporium sp. LPSC no. 1088 and also to identify the putative polyketide synthase (pks) gene that might be involved in the pigment biosynthesis.(More)
Pseudocercospora griseola, an anamorph of Mycosphaerella, causes Angular Leaf Spot (ALS). The mycelia and conidia from P. griseola are coloured due to the synthesis of 1,8 dihydroxynaphthalene (DHN)-melanin. The aim of this work was to identify in P. griseola f. mesoamericana isolate T4, a highly pigmented fungus, intermediary compounds as a result of the(More)
