Top 10 plant-parasitic nematodes in molecular plant pathology.
The aim of this review was to undertake a survey of researchers working with plant-parasitic nematodes in order to determine a 'top 10' list of these pathogens based on scientific and economicExpand

Gene silencing in root lesion nematodes (Pratylenchus spp.) significantly reduces reproduction in a plant host.
Root lesion nematodes (RLNs, Pratylenchus species) are a group of economically important migratory endoparasitic plant pathogens that attack host roots of major crops such as wheat and sugarcane, andExpand

De Novo Transcriptome Sequencing and Analysis of the Cereal Cyst Nematode, Heterodera avenae
The cereal cyst nematode (CCN, Heterodera avenae) is a major pest of wheat (Triticum spp) that reduces crop yields in many countries. Cyst nematodes are obligate sedentary endoparasites thatExpand

Mapping and validation of the genes for resistance to Pyrenophora teres f. teres in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
Identification and deployment of disease resistance genes are key objectives of Australian barley breeding programs. Two doubled haploid (DH) populations derived from Tallon × Kaputar (TK) and VB9524Expand

Virus impact at the interface of an ancient ecosystem and a recent agroecosystem: studies on three legume‐infecting potyviruses in the southwest Australian floristic region
The southwest Australian floristic region (SWAFR) is an internationally recognized 'hot spot' of global biodiversity and has an endangered flora. It represents a unique interface between an ancientExpand

Using laser capture microdissection to study gene expression in early stages of giant cells induced by root-knot nematodes.
SUMMARY Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are economically important plant parasites that induce specific feeding cells called giant cells in host roots. Study of molecular events involved inExpand

The first gene-based map of Lupinus angustifolius L.-location of domestication genes and conserved synteny with Medicago truncatula
We report the first gene-based linkage map of Lupinus angustifolius (narrow-leafed lupin) and its comparison to the partially sequenced genome of Medicago truncatula. The map comprises 382 loci in 20Expand

de novo analysis and functional classification of the transcriptome of the root lesion nematode, Pratylenchus thornei, after 454 GS FLX sequencing.
The migratory endoparasitic root lesion nematode Pratylenchus thornei is a major pest of the cereals wheat and barley. In what we believe to be the first global transcriptome analysis for P. thornei,Expand

Phylogenetic Analysis of Bean yellow mosaic virus Isolates from Four Continents: Relationship Between the Seven Groups Found and Their Hosts and Origins.
Genetic diversity of Bean yellow mosaic virus (BYMV) was studied by comparing sequences from the coat protein (CP) and genome-linked viral protein (VPg) genes of isolates from four continents. CPExpand

Differential display analysis of gene expression in the cytoplasm of giant cells induced in tomato roots by Meloidogyne javanica.
SUMMARY Giant cells induced by root-knot nematodes are highly specialized cells which function as transfer cells and provide nutrients to support the growth and reproduction of the nematode. ChangesExpand
