The growing body of metagenomic data offers the possibility for creating longer consensus assemblies for ecosystems of interest as a community resource. We tested this concept by performing a co-assembly of metagenome and metatranscriptome data from five independent studies of biological soil crust communities in the southwestern United States.
Mosquito larval and adult collections in Stratford and Milford, Connecticut, United States 2019 - 2020Joseph McMillan
Background Mosquito larval control through the use of insecticides is the most common strategy for suppressing West Nile virus (WNV) vector populations in Connecticut (CT), United States. To evaluate the ability of larval control to reduce entomological risk metrics associated with WNV, we performed WNV surveillance and assessments of municipal larvicide application programs in Milford and Stratford, CT in 2019 and 2020. Each town treated catch basins and non-basin habitats (Milford only) with biopesticide products...
