Melon chlorotic leaf curl virus, a New Begomovirus Associated with Bemisia tabaci Infestations in Guatemala.
TLDR
Melon chlorotic leaf curl virus is a new species of the SLCV lineage that contains other bipartite begomoviruses indigenous to Central America, Mexico, and the U.S. Sunbelt states and it is likely that MCLCV also is whitefly-transmitted. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variation among Anopheles albimanus populations.
TLDR
The distribution of mitochondrial DNA haplotypes among A. albimanus populations to test for gene flow barriers with an independent genetic marker suggested that populations are isolated by distance. Expand
Gene flow among Anopheles albimanus populations in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean assessed by microsatellites and mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
Phylogenetic and diversity analyses of mtDNA indicate that more ancestral and diverse haplotypes were present in the Caribbean population, suggesting that current continental An. Expand
Tomato chocolate spot virus, a member of a new torradovirus species that causes a necrosis-associated disease of tomato in Guatemala
TLDR
Analysis of nucleic acids associated with purified virions of the chocolate-spot-associated virus revealed a genome composed of two single-stranded RNAs similar to recently described torradoviruses, a new group of picorna-like viruses causing necrosis-associated diseases of tomatoes in Europe and Mexico. Expand
First Report of Tomato yellow leaf curl virus Infecting Tomato, Tomatillo, and Peppers in Guatemala.
TLDR
The introduction of TYLCV adds to the already high level of genetic complexity of bipartite begomovirus infection of tomatoes and peppers in Guatemala and will undoubtedly complicate disease management efforts. Expand
First case of bone infection caused by Paenibacillus turicensis
TLDR
The first case of bone infection caused by Paenibacillus turicensis is reported and a second case of human infections caused by this bacterium is reported. Expand
Erratum to: Tomato chocolate spot virus, a member of a new torradovirus species that causes a necrosis-associated disease of tomato in Guatemala
Tomatoes in Guatemala have been affected by a new disease, locally known as ''mancha de chocolate'' (chocolate spot). The disease is characterized by distinct necrotic spots on leaves, stems andExpand
MITOCHONDRIAL DNA VARIATION AMONGANOPHELES ALBIMANUS POPULATIONS
TLDR
High degree of variation both in the frequency and copy number of intergenic spacer (IGS) length variants among individual A. albimanus populations is observed and is consistent with a model whereby molecular drive rapidly gives rise to unique spacer patterns in populations and then drives them to high frequencies.
