Francisella tularensis is the causative agent of tularemia, which is a highly lethal disease from nature and potentially from a biological weapon. This species contains four recognized subspecies including the North American endemic F. tularensis subsp. tularensis (type A), whose genetic diversity is correlated with its geographic distribution including a(More)
Trichoderma virens, an imperfect fungus, is used as a biocontrol agent to suppress plant disease caused by soilborne fungal pathogens. Antimicrobial peptides it produces include peptaibols of 11, 14, and 18 amino acids in length.
