Brazilian coffee genome project: an EST-based genomic resource
Coffee is one of the most valuable agricultural commodities and ranks second on international trade exchanges. The genus Coffea belongs to the Rubiaceae family which includes other important plants.Expand
A High-Throughput Data Mining of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in Coffea Species Expressed Sequence Tags Suggests Differential Homeologous Gene Expression in the Allotetraploid Coffea arabica1[W]
Polyploidization constitutes a common mode of evolution in flowering plants. This event provides the raw material for the divergence of function in homeologous genes, leading to phenotypic noveltyExpand
Yeast oxidative stress response
We investigated the changes in the oxidative stress response of yeast cells suffering mitochondrial dysfunction that could impair their viability. First, we demonstrated that cells with thisExpand
High-Resolution Transcript Profiling of the Atypical Biotrophic Interaction between Theobroma cacao and the Fungal Pathogen Moniliophthora perniciosa[C][W][OPEN]
This work dissects the intriguing biotrophic interaction between Theobroma cacao and the fungus Moniliophthora perniciosa in the devastating witches’ broom disease. Infection by M. perniciosa leadsExpand
Global analyses of Ceratocystis cacaofunesta mitochondria: from genome to proteome
The Cacaofunesta mitochondrial genome consists of a single, 103,147-bp circular molecule, making this the second largest mtDNA among the Sordariomycetes. Expand
Preliminary Phylogeographic Analysis of the Neotropical Freshwater Turtle Hydromedusa maximiliani (Chelidae)
Abstract Phylogeography of Hydromedusa maximiliani was assessed by sequencing a 416 bp fragment from the mtDNA control region. Based on this fragment, 18 haplotypes were detected among individualsExpand
The contribution of 700,000 ORF sequence tags to the definition of the human transcriptome
We used a subset of the data that correspond to a set of 15,095 full-length mRNAs as a means of assessing the efficiency of the strategy and its potential contribution to the definition of the human transcriptome. Expand
Identification of a second family of genes in Moniliophthora perniciosa, the causal agent of witches' broom disease in cacao, encoding necrosis-inducing proteins similar to cerato-platanins.
The hemibiotrophic basidiomycete Moniliophthora perniciosa is the causal agent of witches' broom disease in cacao. This is a dimorphic species, with monokaryotic hyphae during the biotrophic phase,Expand

We present the sequencing and annotation of the Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis genome, an etiological agent of human cutaneous leishmaniasis in the Amazon region of Brazil. L. (L.) amazonensisExpand
Control by sugar of Saccharomyces cerevisiae flocculation for industrial ethanol production.
The goal of this study was to develop conditional flocculant yeasts for use in the alcohol fermentation industry. Promoters were constructed to completely repress gene transcription in the presenceExpand
