Here, we report the complete genome sequence of Xanthomonas arboricola pv. juglandis 417, a copper-resistant strain isolated from a blighted walnut fruit (Juglans regia L. cv. Chandler). The genome consists of a single chromosome (5,218 kb).
Peach and almond scab caused by Venturia carpophila and pecan scab caused by Fusicladium effusum result in yield loss, downgrading of fruit, defoliation and subsequent decline of an orchard. To understand the levels of genetic diversity and divergence of pathogens from different hosts and locations 51 isolates were genotyped and analyzed using 10 RAPD and 5… (More)
Results document, for the first time, the role of soil moisture on a unique, tripartite, host-specific rhizosphere interaction (i.e., Cucumis melo-Monosporascus cannonballus-Olpidium bornovanus). Specifically, colonization of cantaloupe roots by zoospores of O. bornovanus and germination of ascospores of M. cannonballus were highest at a soil matric… (More)
