Microbiome diversity and reproductive incompatibility induced by the prevalent endosymbiont Arsenophonus in two species of African cassava Bemisia tabaci whitefliesHajar El Hamss, Maruthi Gowda, Helene Delatte, Saptarshi Ghosh, M. N. Maruthi, Hélène Delatte & John Colvin
This dataset contains data from two-part experiments described in the paper: “El Hamss, H., Ghosh, S., M. N., M., Delatte, H., & Colvin, J. (2021). Microbiome diversity and reproductive incompatibility induced by the prevalent endosymbiont Arsenophonus in two species of African cassava Bemisia tabaci whiteflies. Ecology and Evolution, 00, 1–10. https://doi.org/10.1002/ece3.840”. The experiment investigates the effects of Arsenophonus on whitefly reproduction and microbiome diversity. In the first experiment (“crossing experiment”), the effect of Arsenophonus is...
Data from: An eco-epidemiological study of Morbilli-related paramyxovirus infection in Madagascar bats reveals host-switching as the dominant macro-evolutionary mechanismJulien Mélade, Nicolas Wieseke, Beza Ramasindrazana, Olivier Flores, Erwan Lagadec, Yann Gomard, Steven M. Goodman, Koussay Dellagi & Hervé Pascalis
An eco-epidemiological investigation was carried out on Madagascar bat communities to better understand the evolutionary mechanisms and environmental factors that affect virus transmission among bat species in closely related members of the genus Morbillivirus, currently referred to as Unclassified Morbilli-related paramyxoviruses (UMRVs). A total of 947 bats were investigated originating from 52 capture sites (22 caves, 18 buildings, and 12 outdoor sites) distributed over different bioclimatic zones of the island. Using RT-PCR targeting the L-polymerase...
Data from: Population structure, connectivity and demographic history of an apex marine predator, the bull shark Carcharhinus leucasAgathe Pirog, Virginie Ravigné, Michaël Fontaine, Adrien Rieux, Aude Gilabert, Geremy Cliff, Eric Clua, Ryan Daly, Michael Heithaus, Jeremy Kiszka, Philip Matich, John Nevill, Amy Smoothey, Andrew Temple, Per Berggren, Sebastien Jaquemet & Hélène Magalon
Knowledge of population structure, connectivity and effective population size remains limited for many marine apex predators, including the bull shark Carcharhinus leucas. This large-bodied coastal shark is distributed worldwide in warm temperate and tropical waters, and uses estuaries and rivers as nurseries. As an apex predator, the bull shark likely plays a vital ecological role within marine food webs, but is at risk due to inshore habitat degradation and various fishing pressures. We investigated the...
Data from: Genome mining reveals the genus Xanthomonas to be a promising reservoir for new bioactive non-ribosomally synthesized peptidesMonique Royer, Ralf Koebnik, Mélanie Marguerettaz, Valérie Barbe, Guillaume P. Robin, Chrystelle Brin, Sébastien Carrere, Camila Gomez, Manuela Hügelland, Ginka H. Völler, Julie Noëll, Isabelle Pieretti, Saskia Rausch, Valérie Verdier, Stéphane Poussier, Philippe Rott, Roderich D. Süssmuth & Stéphane Cociancich
Background: Various bacteria can use non-ribosomal peptide synthesis (NRPS) to produce peptides or other small molecules. Conserved features within the NRPS machinery allow the type, and sometimes even the structure, of the synthesized polypeptide to be predicted. Thus, bacterial genome mining via in silico analyses of NRPS genes offers an attractive opportunity to uncover new bioactive non-ribosomally synthesized peptides. Xanthomonas is a large genus of Gram-negative bacteria that cause disease in hundreds of plant species....
