Next generation fungal amplicon sequencing is being used with increasing frequency to study fungal diversity in various ecosystems; however, the influence of sample preparation on the characterization of fungal community is poorly understood. We investigated the effects of four procedural modifications to library preparation for high-throughput sequencing(More)
Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is a cool-season grain legume that is cultivated world-wide for both human consumption and stock-feed purposes. Enhancement of genetic and genomic resources for field pea will permit improved understanding of the control of traits relevant to crop productivity and quality. Advances in second-generation sequencing and associated(More)
When supply and demand are recursive, with uncorrelated cross-equation errors, least squares estimation has no simultaneous equation bias. Supply to a daily fish market is determined by the previous night's catch, so this would appear to be a good example of a recursive market. Despite this, data from the Fulton fish market are treated in the literature,(More)
BACKGROUND Acute descending thoracic aortic dissection is a life-threatening emergency. It is not often considered as the initial diagnosis in patients presenting with epigastric pain and could easily be missed in a busy casualty department. AIM This case report is aimed to highlight the feasibility of the technique and the need for long-term surveillance(More)
Field pea (Pisum sativum L.) is a grain legume crop that is cultivated for either human or livestock consumption. Development of varieties adapted to damaging abiotic and biotic stresses is a major objective for field pea breeding. Bacterial blight is a serious disease caused by the pathogenic agents Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae and Pseudomonas(More)
A number of recent studies suggest that interspecific competition plays a key role in determining the structure of ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal communities. Despite this growing consensus, there has been limited study of ECM fungal community dynamics in abiotically stressful environments, which are often dominated by positive rather than antagonistic(More)
" Who lives in the forest under a tree? Spongiforma squarepantsii. Absorbent and orange and porous is he. Spongiforma squarepantsii. "-to melody of SpongeBob theme song. Recently we had the opportunity to describe a new species of fungus (Desjardin et al 2011). This may sound like a rare thing, but as it turns out there are many such undescribed fungi that(More)
