Detection of plant viruses by PCR using group or virus specific primers (potyviruses, bymoviruses).
A combined assay of reverse transcription and the polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) utilizing degenerate primers derived from conserved regions in the genome of potyviruses was designed in order toExpand
Preliminary study of exo-beta-1,3-glucanase encoding genes in relation to the protective activity of Pichia anomala (strain K) against Botrytis cinerea on postharvest apples.
In a previous study, the yeast Pichia anomala strain K was found to provide a high and reliable level of protection against Botrytis cinerea on wounded apples. An exo-p1,3-glucanase (paexg2), activeExpand
First Report of Banana mild mosaic virus Isolated from Plantains (Musa AAB) in Colombia.
Plantains (Musa AAB) are important sources of food and income for millions of people in Colombia and other developing countries. Colombia is the largest producer of plantains (2) and the thirdExpand
Development of microsatellite markers for the characterisation of Phaeoisariopsis griseola (bean angular leaf spot agent) populations in Central America
Although several researches revealed an important diversity within Phaeoisariopsis griseola, the bean angular leaf spot (ALS) agent, no sexual recombination was already detected for this fungus. ThatExpand
Determination of the taxonomic position and characterization of yam mosaic virus isolates based on sequence data of the 5′-terminal part of the coat protein cistron
SummaryThe sequences of the N-terminal part of the coat protein cistron from six isolates of yam mosaic virus (YMV-TOG, YMV-COT, YMV-12, YMV-CAR, YMV-BU1 and YMV-BU2) were determined. The analysis ofExpand
