MOTIVATION Li and Wong have described some useful statistical models for probe-level, oligonucleotide array data based on a multiplicative parametrization. In earlier work, we proposed similar analysis-of-variance-style mixed models fit on a log scale. With only subtle differences in the specification of their mean and stochastic error components, a(More)
Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. niveum is reported for the first time in the Lao PDR. It was isolated from watermelons (Citrullus lanatus) in Songkhon district, Savannahkhet province following a limited ad hoc survey during January and February of 2015. Infected plants showed symptoms of wilt, vascular discolouration, necrosis in the collar region, lower stem base(More)
This paper addresses the issue of exact-test based statistical inference for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium in the presence of missing genotype data. Missing genotypes often are discarded when markers are tested for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, which can lead to bias in the statistical inference about equilibrium. Single and multiple imputation can improve(More)
Tradescantia fluminensis [Commelinaceae] (common name wandering Jew or trad), is a native Brazilian herbaceous plant, which has been introduced to be used as an ornamental in many warm areas of the world. In New Zealand and other countries it has become an aggressive invader of natural ecosystems, causing serious environmental disturbances and threatening(More)
Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group AG-4 HG-I is reported for the first time from the Lao PDR. It was isolated from gai lan (Brassica oleracea var. alboglabra) affected by collar rot, seedling death, root rot and stunting of older plants from the Paksong area of Champasak province. The anastomosis group was confirmed by sequencing and Koch’s postulates(More)
