Phylogeny and systematics of 18 Colletotrichum species based on ribosomal DNA spacer sequences.
The potential use of the ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences in understanding the phylogeny and systematics of Colletotrichum species has been evaluated. Sequence data from a
PCR-based detection of Colletotrichum acutatum on strawberry
The species-specific primer (CaInt2) developed in this work could be used for the accurate identification of C. acutatum and its detection on other host plants.
Detection and differentiation of Colletotrichum gloeosporioides isolates using PCR.
The potential of PCR for detection and differentiation of C. gloeosporioides is discussed and a 450-bp fragment was amplified from as little as 10 fg of fungal DNA.
Intraspecific molecular variation among Trichoderma harzianum isolates colonizing mushroom compost in the British Isles.
The genetic diversity in Trichoderma harzianum isolates from mushroom compost was assessed using various molecular techniques and group 2 isolates could be clearly distinguished from the isolates belonging to the other two groups.
Saprotrophic and Mycoparasitic Components of Aggressiveness of Trichoderma harzianum Groups toward the Commercial Mushroom Agaricus bisporus
It is hypothesized that aggressiveness results from competition, antagonism, or parasitism but only as a component of, or following, extensive saprotrophic growth involving degradation of wheat straw cell walls.
Double-stranded RNA elements associated with the MVX disease of Agaricus bisporus.
On-farm observations suggest that MVX could be spread by infected spores and/or mycelial fragments, and previously, La France disease was effectively contained and controlled by minimising the on-farm production and spread of basidiospores.
Interpolity exchange of basalt tools facilitated via elite control in Hawaiian archaic states
Stone tools quarried from extralocal sources are found in the highest frequency in elite residential features and in ritual contexts, suggesting a significant role for a wealth economy based on the control and distribution of nonagricultural goods and resources during the rise of the Hawaiian archaic states.
A comparison of methods for successful triggering of gene silencing in Coprinus cinereus
The GFP reporter gene was exploited to evaluate and quantify efficacy of three different silencing strategies, and it was revealed that the antisense and hairpin sequences yielded similar levels of GFP suppression, and were both more efficient than untranslatable sense sequences.
