As a result of continuing worldwide outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) caused by the Asian lineage of H5N1, surveillance of targeted avian species in selected regions has been implemented. In these wild bird surveys, the use of real-time reverse transcription (rRT)-PCR has proved to be an invaluable tool as a frontline screening assay for(More)
Cytoplasmically inherited chloramphenicol- and erythromycin-resistant mutants were obtained in three unrelated and two isogenic haploid strains of yeast. The bias favoring the transmission of these resistance alleles in crosses to the isogenic strains was compared on two levels: on the population level by means of observing random diploid progeny from mass(More)
A large number of spontaneous, cytoplasmic petite mutants from six grande strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae were crossed to a pair of isogenic tester strains. Suppressivity values were obtained by randomly sampling the diploid progeny from these crosses, and this basis, crosses were broadly categorized as having high, intermediate, or low suppressivity.(More)
