Bacterial Diversity and Composition in Oylat Cave (Turkey) with Combined Sanger/Pyrosequencing Approach

The microbiology of caves is an important topic for better understanding subsurface biosphere diversity. The diversity and taxonomic composition of bacterial communities associated with cave walls of the Oylat Cave was studied first time by molecular cloning basedon Sanger/pyrosequencing approach. Results showed an average of 1,822 operational taxonomic units per sample. Clones analyzed from Oylat Cave were found to belong to 10 common phyla within the domain Bacteria. Proteobacteria dominated

Mitogenomic diversity and genetic population structure of the pinewood nematode (PWN) Bursaphelenchus xylophilus inhabiting Kyushu, Japan were analyzed. A method for performing long PCR using single nematodes and sequencing nematode mitochondrial genomes individually is presented here. About 8 kb (∼55%) of the complete mitochondrial genome was successfully obtained from 285 individuals collected from 12 populations. The 158 single nucleotide polymorphisms detected corresponded to 30 haplotypes

Ensemble learning can improve the accuracy of the classification algorithm and it has been widely used. Traditional ensemble learning methods include bagging, boosting and other methods, both of which are ensemble learning methods based on homogenous base classifiers, and obtain a diversity of base classifiers only through sample perturbation. However, heterogenous base classifiers tend to be more diverse, and multi-angle disturbances tend to obtain a variety of base classifiers. This paper

The studies on the occurrence and diversity of tick-borne infections in HIV-infected individuals have been few, and the subject has been relatively neglected when compared with other infections associated with HIV. Non-specific symptoms of tick-borne diseases pose a challenge in clinical care and may lead to misdiagnosis, especially in HIV-positive patients, who often experience many non-specific clinical symptoms. Additionally, in immunocompromised patients, a significant delay of antibody

Intraspecific variation in phenotypic and phylogenetic features among Pratylenchus penetrans isolates from Wisconsin, USA

were (i) to assess the extent of intraspecific variability in P. penetrans in Wisconsin by comparing 13 populations of P. penetrans for morphological variation and 52 populations for sequence variation in the COI mitochondrial gene, and (ii) to determine the extent of diversity in COI for P. penetrans by combining our data with published COI sequences from populations around the world in phylogenetic and haplotype analyses. Materials and methods Nematode isolates Nematodes were recovered from

Isolation of Bacterial Endophytes from Phalaris arundinacea and their Potential in Diclofenac and Sulfamethoxazole Degradation

approximately 35% of DCF and 61% of SMX, while an increase in the optical density of the cultures was noted. The higher removal efficiency can be explained by adaptive mechanisms in microorganisms exposed to phenol (i.e. changes in the composition of membrane lipids) and by a co-metabolic mechanism, where non-growth substrates can be transformed by non-specific enzymes. The presence of both DCF and SMX and the influence of the supply frequency of CWs with the contaminated wastewater on the diversity of

fungi, is the unexpected diversity of phylogenetic isolates, which earlier appeared to be phenotypically monomorphic [22, 25, 63, 64]. The isolates with a similar macro and micro-morphology are repeatedly proven to belong to completely different species, genera and even ecological groups [22, 40, 60]. It is necessary to indicate that dermatophytes classified according to phenotype, despite the differentiation of traits within equivalent taxa, always belong to one evolutionary lineage, that is

Are Entomopathogenic Nematodes Effective Biological Control Agents Against the Carob Moth, Ectomyelois ceratoniae?

The carob moth (Ectomyelois ceratoniae) is the key pest of pomegranate, which causes a significant percentage of losses in pomegranate orchards and warehouses of Iran annually. The pest larvae are characterized by displaying a cryptic behavior within the fruit, which avoids most routine control techniques, especially chemical method. The low efficiency of traditional measurements and also the rich species diversity of natural enemies within the infested fruits highlight the necessity
