An array of short-sequence DNA repeats (SSRs) occurs in the plasmid pEA29 of the fire blight pathogen Erwinia amylovora. A large number of "fruit tree" strains, mainly from Central and Western Europe, were screened for their SSR numbers, and the analyses were extended to five raspberry strains from North America and six pear pathogenic Erwinia strains from(More)
Several strains of the genus Erwinia, which were isolated in Japan from pear trees with necrotic symptoms that resembled fire blight, and tentatively identified as Erwinia amylovora, were reinvestigated for their relationship to the fire blight pathogen. These isolates produced ooze on slices of immature pears and were mucoid on MM2Cu agar plates, but did(More)
The small basic histone-like protein H-NS is known for bacteria to attenuate virulence of several animal pathogens. An hns homologue from E. amylovora was identified by complementing an E. coli hns-mutant strain with a cosmid library from E. amylovora. A 1.6 kb EcoRI-fragment complemented the mucoid phenotype and repressed the ss-glucosidase activity of E.(More)
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 14052 " Ethics in Data Sharing ". The seminar brought together computer scientists, an ethicist and legal scholars to discuss the topic of " ethics in data sharing. " ACM's ethical guidelines (as well as IEEE's) are almost two decades old. The most relevant points to data sharing it(More)
