Comparative analyses of the complete genome sequences of Pierce's disease and citrus variegated chlorosis strains of Xylella fastidiosa.
TLDR
The genome sequence of X. fastidiosa (Temecula strain) is reported and it is concluded that these two organisms have identical metabolic functions and are likely to use a common set of genes in plant colonization and pathogenesis, permitting convergence of functional genomic strategies. Expand
Phylogeny of Rutaceae based on twononcoding regions from cpDNA.
Primarily known only by the edible fruits of Citrus, Rutaceae comprise a large (c. 160 genera and 1900 species), morphologically diverse, cosmopolitan family. Of its extraordinary array of secondaryExpand
Assessing Bacterial Diversity in the Rhizosphere of Thymus zygis Growing in the Sierra Nevada National Park (Spain) through Culture-Dependent and Independent Approaches
TLDR
Abundant bacterial families and predicted functional profiles of the core microbiome suggest that the main drivers of the bacterial community in the Thymus zygis rhizosphere are related to the nutrients originating from the plant root and to their participation in biogeochemical cycles thereby creating an intricate relationship with this aromatic plant to allow for a feedback ecological benefit.

Responses of bulk and rhizosphere soil microbial communities to thermoclimatic changes in a Mediterranean ecosystem
TLDR
A set of microbial bioindicators are defined for the thermoclimatic zones as a starting point to develop improved biological tools and models to monitor and predict the effects of climate changes. Expand
P HYLOGENY OF RUTACEAE BASED ON TWO NONCODING REGIONS FROM CPDNA 1
TLDR
Sequence data from 65 species in 59 genera that represented all subfamilies and tribes and more genera of Toddalioideae and of neotropical groups than previous studies are included to assist with the much-needed suprageneric reclassification and with studies of evolution of chemical compounds and biogeographic history of the Rutaceae.

Functional characterization of sugarcane mustang domesticated transposases and comparative diversity in sugarcane, rice, maize and sorghum
TLDR
These findings suggest the possible involvement of mustang proteins in the maintenance of hormonal homeostasis in sugarcane. Expand
