Despite the importance of tetraploid species, most population genetic studies deal with diploid ones because of difficulties in analysing codominant microsatellite data in tetraploid species. We developed a new software program-atetra-which combines both the rigorous method of enumeration for small data sets and Monte Carlo simulations for large ones. We(More)
Consensus primers, based on exon sequences of the cyp73 gene family coding for cinnamate 4-hydroxylase (C4H) of the lignin biosynthesis pathway, were designed for the tetraploid willow species Salix alba and Salix fragilis. Diagnostic alleles at species level were observed among introns of three cyp73 genes and allowed unambiguous detection of the first(More)
Enterobacter sakazakii is a motile, peritrichous, gram-negative rod that was previously known as a yellow pigmented Enterobacter cloacae. It is documented as a rare cause of outbreaks and sporadic cases of life-threatening neonatal meningitis, necrotizing enterocolitis, and sepsis. E. sakazakii has been isolated from milk powder-based formulas, and there is(More)
