Cobalt-rich crusts are important metallic mineral resources with great economic potential, usually distributed on seamounts located in the Pacific Ocean. Microorganisms are believed to play a role in the formation of crusts as well as in metal cycling. To explore the microbial diversity related to cobalt-rich crusts, 16S ribosomal RNA gene clone libraries(More)
Stem rot (Sclerotium oryzae) is an important disease constraint in Californian rice production. Measurement of resistance is laborious, and the low heritability of the trait limits the effectiveness of selection in breeding programs. Molecular markers linked to the trait would therefore provide a superior selection screen to assist in transferring(More)
