Development and Validation of a Sclerotinia sclerotiorum-Specific Quantitative PCR Assay to Assess Risk of Sclerotinia Stem Rot of Canola (Brassica napus)Download
Sclerotinia stem rot, caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, is a major disease of canola (Brassica napus) commonly managed by the routine application of fungicides. Petal infestation is an important stage of the disease cycle and has been the focus of previously developed Sclerotinia stem rot risk...
The oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) generated from bitumen extraction of oil sands by industries in Northern Alberta, Canada, is a great environmental concern because of the OSPW toxicity in the environment. This toxicity has been attributed to a group of alicyclic and aliphatic compounds...
Carnobacterium maltaromaticum ATCC PTA-5313, which produces bacteriocins carnocyclin A, piscicolin 126 and carnobacteriocin BM1, has been approved for use on meat products to control the growth of Listeria monocytogenes. This combination of bacteriocins is very effective as a biopreservative. It...
Spheroidal gall formation and seedborne infestation by Plasmodiophora brassicae as overlooked aspects of clubroot biology and epidemiologyDownload
Plasmodiophora brassicae, the causal agent of clubroot, can infect many species of the Brassicaceae. Infection results in the formation of galls on the roots of susceptible plants. Most galls are spindle-shaped, but spheroid galls can also develop and are regarded as resistance structures....
