The soil fungus Rhizoctonia solani is a pathogen of agricultural crops. Here, we report on the 51,705,945 bp draft consensus genome sequence of R. solani strain Rhs1AP. A comprehensive understanding of the heterokaryotic genome complexity and organization of R. solani may provide insight into the plant disease ecology and adaptive behavior of the fungus.
Dry-state room temperature storage of DNA is of interest because it promises to be a relatively more cost effective and environmentally friendly method for transport and storage of DNA. However, this approach must be validated prior to large scale adoption by the scientist that currently store blood samples frozen. In this study, we compared the yield of… (More)
