—Most of the currently deployed wireless sensor networks applications do not require performance control. The goal of the GINSENG project is sensor networks that meet application-specific performance targets, in particular with respect to latency and reliability. We present scenarios within the GALP oil refinery where the system will be deployed and some(More)
A putative circular single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) virus was recovered from Hypericum japonicum collected in Vietnam. The viral isolate was tentatively named Hypericum japonicum-associated circular DNA virus (HJasCV). HJasCV shares 58.7-65.4% nucleotide sequence identity with Sclerotinia sclerotiorum hypovirulence-associated DNA virus 1 (SsHADV-1) and(More)
The complete genome sequence of a monopartite begomovirus isolate TY01 was obtained from diseased Pouzolzia zeylanica plants exhibiting golden mosaic symptoms in Baise, Guangxi Province, China. It consisted of 2723 nucleotides (nt) and encoded two ORFs (CP and AV2) in the virion-sense DNA and five ORFs (AC1-AC5) in the complementary-sense DNA. Compared with(More)
Virus isolate G10 was obtained from diseased allamanda plants showing leaf curl symptoms in Guangdong, China. The full-length nucleotide sequence of a DNA-A-like molecule of G10 was cloned and sequenced; it comprises 2755 nucleotides and has a typical begomovirus genome organization with six conserved open reading frames. When compared with the DNA-A(More)
A begomovirus isolate VN1 associated with symptomatic Hedyotis uncinella Hook. et Arn. from Vietnam was characterized. The virus, which we provisionally name H. uncinella yellow mosaic virus (HUYMV), has a monopartite genome of 2,749 nucleotides (nts). Pairwise comparisons of DNA-A sequences showed that HUYMV had a maximum nt sequence identity with Soybean(More)
RNA silencing is a conserved mechanism in plants that targets viruses. Viral small RNAs (vsiRNAs) can be generated from viral double-stranded RNA replicative intermediates within the infected host, or from host RNA-dependent RNA polymerases activity on viral templates. The abundance and profile of vsiRNAs in viral infections have been reported previously.(More)
Ralstonia solanacearum species complex is a devastating group of phytopathogens with an unusually wide host range and broad geographical distribution. R. solanacearum isolates may differ considerably in various properties including host range and pathogenicity, but the underlying genetic bases remain vague. Here, we conducted the genome sequencing of strain(More)
—The goal of the GINSENG project is a performance-controlled sensor network suitable for time-critical applications like plant automation and control. Such sensor networks must monitor performance constantly and collect data in order to detect, diagnose and rectify problems. The GINSENG system contains a number of mechanisms used to collect, transport and(More)
Cotton leaf curl Multan virus (CLCuMuV) is a Whitefly Transmitted Geminivirus (WTG) endemic to the India subcontinent and is notorious as a causal agent of cotton leaf curl disease (CLCuD), a major constraint to cotton production in south Asia. We found CLCuMuV infecting Hibiscus rosa-sinensis in Guangzhou, China in 2006. The spread and evolution of the(More)
