CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Isolation and characterization of tandem repeats in nematode genomes.

This chapter provides an overview of the practical methodologies that can be used to identify and characterize the tandem repeats that are most frequently used as genetic markers in nematodes (including plant-parasitic and entomopathogenic nematodes), namely satellite DNA and microsatellites. The...

Cover for Data resources: role and services of culture collections.

Microbial culture collections (CC) support taxonomy through the provision and preservation of microorganisms, underpinning the integrity of research. However, cultures are essentially worthless without associated data. Details of isolation (geographical location, date of collection, date of...

Cover for Microbial Genomic Taxonomy.

This book chapter argues for an open-access catalogue of taxonomic descriptions with prototypes; diagnostic tables; and links to culture collections, to genome and gene sequences, and to other phenotypic and ecological databases. Ideally, the open access taxonomy will be based solely on genome...

Cover for Genomic sequences for fungi.

This chapter aims to give an overview of the basic knowledge, understanding and perspectives in fungal genomics. It is likely that fungal genome sequencing will soon become simpler and cheaper, and allow most research laboratories to undertake in-house, whole genome sequencing on a regular basis,...

Cover for Genomes reveal the cohesiveness of bacterial species taxa and provide a path towards describing all of bacterial diversity.

This book chapter argues that bacterial systematists of the mid-20th century fortuitously created a species-level systematics that actually fits an important universal theory of speciation by discussing taxonomy would allow us to infer the important characteristics of any unknown organism once we...
