The Rhizobiaceae family of Gram-negative bacteria often engage in symbiosis with plants of economic importance. Historically, genetic studies to identify the function of individual genes, and characterize the biology of these bacteria have relied on the use of classical transposon mutagenesis. To increase the rate of scientific discovery in the Rhizobiaceae(More)
Prion diseases are disorders of protein conformation that produce neurodegeneration in humans and animals. Studies of transgenic (Tg) mice indicate that a factor designated protein X is involved in the conversion of the normal cellular prion protein (PrPC) into the scrapie isoform (PrPSc); protein X appears to interact with PrPC but not with PrPSc. To(More)
InfoSleuth 1 is an agent-based system for information gathering and analysis tasks, performed over networks of autonomous information sources. A key motivation of the InfoSleuth system is that real information gathering applications require long-running monitoring and integration of information at various levels of abstraction, and that useful abstraction(More)
The free-living legume symbiont Rhizobium leguminosarum is of significant economic value because of its ability to provide fixed nitrogen to globally important leguminous food crops, such as peas and lentils. Discovery based research into the genetics and physiology of R. leguminosarum provides the foundational knowledge necessary for understanding the(More)
Rheinheimera sp. KL1 was isolated from an algal bloom in Katepwa Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada. The isolate shares genetic and physiological similarities with Rheinheimera tangshanensis. The genome is estimated to be 4,295,060 bp in length with a GC content of 46.37%. Sequence analysis suggests the strain carries a previously uncharacterized prophage.
Here, we report the first draft genome sequence of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Livingstone. This S. Livingstone strain CKY-S4 displayed biofilm formation and cellulose production and could persist on lettuce. This genome may help the study of mechanisms by which enteric pathogens colonize food crops.
Bacteriophages may play an important role in regulating population size and diversity of the root nodule symbiont Rhizobium leguminosarum, as well as participating in horizontal gene transfer. Although phages that infect this species have been isolated in the past, our knowledge of their molecular biology, and especially of genome composition, is extremely(More)
We describe the design, implementation, and deployment of the Comprehensive Extensible Data Documentation and Access Repository (CED<sup>2</sup>AR). This is a metadata repository system that allows researchers to search, browse, access, and cite confidential data and metadata through either a web-based user interface or programmatically through a search(More)
