How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
Previous research has demonstrated that Senecio repangae subsp. repangae and subsp. pokohinuensis have independent evolutionary origins. Here, we therefore elevate subsp. pokohinuensis to species rank: Senecio pokohinuensis. Updated morphological descriptions for both species are also provided.
Article
Boswellia sacra Flueck (family Burseraceae) tree is wounded to produce frankincense. We report its de novo assembled genome (667.8 Mb) comprising 18,564 high-confidence protein-encoding genes. Comparing conserved single-copy genes across eudicots suggest >97% gene space assembly of B. sacra genome. Evolutionary history shows B. sacra gene-duplicati...
Article
In October 2021, 59 scientists from 14 countries and 13 U.S. states collaborated virtually in the Third Annual Baylor College of Medicine & DNANexus Structural Variation hackathon. The goal of the hackathon was to advance research on structural variants (SVs) by prototyping and iterating on open-source software. This led to nine hackathon projects...
Article
Porcine alveolar macrophage (PAM) is one of the primary cellular targets for PRRSV, but less than 2% of PAMs are infected with the virus during the acute stage of infection. To comparatively analyze the host transcriptional response between PRRSV-infected PAMs and bystanders PAMs that remained uninfected but were exposed to the inflammatory milieu...
Article
As presently delimited, the endemic New Zealand species Senecio glaucophyllus Cheeseman shows considerable morphological and ecological diversity. Two morphologically similar forms associated with this taxon are found in northwest Nelson (South Island), of which one is often filed in herbaria as S. glaucophyllus subsp. glaucophyllus. The other form...

Both virulent and live-attenuated porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) strains can establish persistent infection in lymphoid tissues of pigs. To investigate the mechanisms of PRRSV persistence, we performed a transcriptional analysis of inguinal lymphoid tissue collected from pigs experimentally infected with an attenuated P...
Article
Senecio (Asteraceae: Senecioneae) is one of the largest genera of flowering plants and its infrageneric delimitation has been impeded by its large size (> 1000 species), large morphological variation and widespread incongruence between phylogenies derived from different datasets. As part of efforts to improve our understanding of the evolutionary r...
Article
Full-text available
A new combination, Senecio esperensis, is made for Senecio lautus subsp. esperensis, a narrow-range endemic confined to L’Esperance Rock, the southernmost of the Kermadec Islands group. Senecio esperensis is an ornithocoprophilous species wholly confined to the guano-enriched summit saddle of L’Esperance Rock. It is distinguished from S. lautus s.s...
Article
Full-text available
Senecio australis is confirmed as present in New Zealand. A full description based on New Zealand specimens is also provided. Senecio australis was discovered in New Zealand in 1994. Prior to this date, the absence of supporting specimens had caused this species to be rejected from the New Zealand flora and treated as endemic to Norfolk Island. In...
