Genome-wide association study of Fusarium ear rot disease in the USA maize inbred line collection

BMC PLANT BIOLOGY, 14(1).

author keywords: Association analysis; Disease resistance; Genomic selection; Maize; Quantitative trait
MeSH headings : Disease Resistance / genetics; Fusarium / physiology; Genome-Wide Association Study; Host-Pathogen Interactions / genetics; Plant Diseases; Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide; Zea mays / genetics; Zea mays / immunology
TL;DR: A genome-wide association study for Fusarium ear rot resistance in a very diverse maize collection identified seven SNP variants each associated with between 1% and 3% of trait variation, which means the value of selection on these SNPs for improving resistance to Fus aquarium ear rot is limited.

The evolutionary history and diagnostic utility of the CRISPR-Cas system within Salmonella enterica ssp enterica

PEERJ, 2.

By: J. Pettengill*, R. Timme*, R. Barrangou n, M. Toro*, M. Allard*, E. Strain*, S. Musser*, E. Brown*

author keywords: Salmonella; Horizontal gene transfer; Evolution; CRISPR; Outbreak; Phylogeny; Whole genome sequencing; Typing
TL;DR: A novel clustering approach based onCRISPR spacer content is developed, but it is found that typing based on CRISPRs was less accurate than the MLST-based alternative; typed based on WGS data was the most accurate. (via Semantic Scholar)
