Whether micro-organisms can live in periapical endodontic lesions of asymptomatic teeth is under debate. The aim of the present study was to visualize and identify micro-organisms within periapical lesions directly, using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) in combination with epifluorescence and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). Thirty-nine(More)
Lichtheimia species are the second most important cause of mucormycosis in Europe. To provide broader insights into the molecular basis of the pathogenicity-associated traits of the basal Mucorales, we report the full genome sequence of L. corymbifera and compared it to the genome of Rhizopus oryzae, the most common cause of mucormycosis worldwide. The(More)
Genes occurring co-localized in multiple genomes can be strong indicators for either functional constraints on the genome organization or remnant ancestral gene order. The computational detection of these patterns, which are usually referred to as gene clusters, has become increasingly sensitive over the past decade. The most powerful approaches allow for(More)
Gene-order-based comparison of multiple genomes provides signals for functional analysis of genes and the evolutionary process of genome organization. Gene clusters are regions of co-localized genes on genomes of different species. The rapid increase in sequenced genomes necessitates bioinformatics tools for finding gene clusters in hundreds of genomes.(More)
In 1993, a virus causing red mosaic and leaf distortion has been isolated from black bryony (Tamus communis) in Italy. Based on particle properties and serology, the virus was assigned to the genus Potexvirus and named Tamus red mosaic virus (TRMV), pending a genome sequence. The original Italian TRMV isolate was submitted to the DSMZ plant virus collection(More)
