The draft genome of the transgenic tropical fruit tree papaya (Carica papaya Linnaeus)
Papaya, a fruit crop cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions, is known for its nutritional benefits and medicinal applications. Here we report a 3× draft genome sequence of ‘SunUp’ papaya, theExpand

Methane oxidation by an extremely acidophilic bacterium of the phylum Verrucomicrobia
Aerobic methanotrophic bacteria consume methane as it diffuses away from methanogenic zones of soil and sediment. They act as a biofilter to reduce methane emissions to the atmosphere, and they areExpand

Draft genome sequence of the rubber tree Hevea brasiliensis
BackgroundHevea brasiliensis, a member of the Euphorbiaceae family, is the major commercial source of natural rubber (NR). NR is a latex polymer with high elasticity, flexibility, and resilience thatExpand

Isolation of novel bacteria, including a candidate division, from geothermal soils in New Zealand.
We examined bacterial diversity of three geothermal soils in the Taupo Volcanic Zone of New Zealand. Phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA genes recovered directly from soils indicated that the bacterialExpand

Complete genome sequence of the extremely acidophilic methanotroph isolate V4, Methylacidiphilum infernorum, a representative of the bacterial phylum Verrucomicrobia
BackgroundThe phylum Verrucomicrobia is a widespread but poorly characterized bacterial clade. Although cultivation-independent approaches detect representatives of this phylum in a wide range ofExpand

Analysis of papaya BAC end sequences reveals first insights into the organization of a fruit tree genome
Papaya (Carica papaya L.) is a major tree fruit crop of tropical and subtropical regions with an estimated genome size of 372 Mbp. We present the analysis of 4.7% of the papaya genome based on BACExpand
