Article
Raspberry bushy dwarf virus (RBDV) is one of the most important pathogens of raspberries worldwide. In this study, we detected RBDV from 8 out of 50 cherry samples collected from Bursa, Turkey by DAS-ELISA and/or RT-PCR. We also determined the nearly full genome sequences of RBDV RNA2 from two cherry (Prunus avium) trees. The genomes were identical...

The purpose of the study is to investigate the possibility of using wine industry wastes, such as red and white grape bagasse, to produce bacterial cellulose (BC) instead of using a costly commercial medium. BC was produced using grape bagasse as a carbon source replacement and the sole nutrient in the medium. The BC films were evaluated for their...

The phylogeny, identification, and characterization of 33 B. cereus sensu lato isolates originating from 17 agricultural soils from 11 countries were analyzed on the basis of whole genome sequencing. Phylogenetic analyses revealed all isolates are divided into six groups, which follows the generally accepted phylogenetic division of B. cereus sensu...

Raspberry bushy dwarf virus (RBDV) is a long-known virus naturally infecting Rubus and grapevine. It is also one of the economically most important viruses of raspberries, but there are only a limited number of sequences covering a substantial part of the genome available in the databases. The aim of this study was: i) to study the geographic distr...

Five isolates of a new member of the family Closteroviridae, tentatively named blackcurrant leafroll-associated virus 1 (BcLRaV-1), were identified in the currant. The 17-kb-long genome codes for 10 putative proteins. The replication-associated polyprotein has several functional domains, including papain-like proteases, methyltransferase, Zemlya, h...

Five isolates of a new putative member of the genus Closterovirus, tentatively named blackcurrant leafroll associated virus 1 (BcLRaV-1), were identified in currant. The 17 kb long genome of BcLRaV-1 contained 10 open reading frames (ORFs). The replication associated polyprotein has two papain-like leader proteases, a methyltransferase, a helicase...
Article
The increased incidence of the crown gall disease caused by Agrobacterium tumefaciens has long been associated with activities of root-knot nematodes, Meloidogyne spp. Pot experiments on tomato were designed to assess plant vitality, nematode reproduction and crown gall incidence in combined infection with Agrobacterium and Meloidogyne on tomato ro...

In 2012, growers of an indigenous onion (Allium cepa L.) cultivar from Northeastern Slovenia began noticing an increase of rotting onion bulbs both in the field and in storage. In some instances up to 30% of the bulbs were affected. Externally, the bulbs appeared healthy, but internal layers were found to have water-soaked and brown coloured lesion...

Agrobacterium vitis causes common grape vine (Vitis vinifera L.) crown gall disease that destroyed a lot of Slovenian vineyards more than a decade ago. Eighty isolates of Agrobacterium spp. collected during monitoring in 2006 were identified as A. vitis and A. tumefacies by pehA and multiplex PCR method. Tumor-inducing capacity of these strains was...

The disease crown gall, which causes damage on perennial agricultural crops, is economically important in many countries. We therefore explored the presence of Agrobacterium spp. in a variety of agricultural soils where fruit trees are grown. Most samples were collected in four regions of Slovenia where a majority of fruit tree plantations are situ...

Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are important pests of many cultivated plants. Recently, the most efficient chemical control products (e.g. methyl bromide) have now been restricted due to their toxic characteristics. Research on agents that work against root-knot nematodes and do not have a detrimental impact on the environment is becoming i...

Main goals: .To determine the presence and to identify the bacterial olive knot (Pseudomonas savastanoi pv. savastanoi) (Pss) on different olive varieties in Croatia and abroad (Slovenia and Portugal) and in Bosnia and Herzegovina to determine the presence and to identify fungal pathogens .To examine the in vitro antimicrobial activity of complex antimicrobial constituents on pathogens of olives (bacteria and fungi) and to determine the chemical profile of the most effective antimicrobial constituents . Monitoring of symptoms in pathogenicity test under controlled conditions and identification of more resistant olive varieties to pathogenic bacteria .Influence of bacterial olive knot on the host: chemical analyzes of the composition of samples from healthy and infected plants .Determination of the in vivo effectiveness of the application of antimicrobial compounds to olive knot under controlled conditions

¸In contemporary established biology life is almost exclusively treated as a molecular phenomenon – the same outlook holds for its origin. But many researches and considerations show life's complex and dynamic architecture bases on supramolecular order. Complex order was found also in various water systems, especially in the interfacial and colloidal ones. We shall explore the possibility that organisms can emerge from complex, but at least initially poorly organized systems in their molecular (chemical) aspect. The necessary high level of organization (chemical as well as biophysical) for the existence of organisms could stem from organized systems in the mesoscopic domain of interfacial water. Relatively simple organisms can then emerge much more quickly and easily than considered in the established science of the (chemical) origin of life.
