Molecular characterization of a new Carlavirus detected in German Ulmus laevis (Pall.) by Illumina high throughput sequencing
A 150 years old population of 30 European white elms (Ulmus laevis Pall.) in the park of Caputh (federal state Brandenburg, Germany) was monitored regularly since 2010. Trees show a dieback and develop characteristic leaf ...
Molecular characterization of the movement and coat proteins of a new Elm mottle virus isolate infecting European white elm (Ulmus laevis Pall.)
European white elms (Ulmus laevis Pall.) growing in a park in Caputh near Berlin (Germany) were regularly monitored over a period of 18 years showing virus infection-like symptoms such as chloroses, chlorotic ringspots, ...

IFSA Europe (www.ifsa-europe.org) is a platform for European Farming systems research. With the 11th European IFSA symposium we sought manifold answers that deal with challenges in an integrative, interconnected way on ...
Softening of Processed Plant Virus Infected Cucumis sativus Fruits
Texture softening of pickled cucumbers does not meet consumers’ quality expectations and leads to economic losses. The factor(s) triggering this phenomenon is still unknown. We investigated the importance of plant viruses ...
Saving CO2 Emissions by Reusing Organic Growing Media from Hydroponic Tomato Production as a Source of Nutrients to Produce Ethiopian Kale (Brassica carinata)
Large quantities of growing media residues that are rich in nutrients are disposed of after their use in hydroponics. The objective of this study was to investigate the benefits of different organic growing media (wood ...
Abscisic acid induces somatic embryogenesis and enables the capture of high-value genotypes in Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [MIRB.] Franco)
Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is one of Europe’s most important non-native tree species due to its drought tolerance as well as timber quality and yield. To obtain superior seed from selected parental trees, breeding ...
Probiotic Bacillus Strains Enhance T Cell Responses in Chicken
Banning antibiotic growth promotors and other antimicrobials in poultry production due to the increasing antimicrobial resistance leads to increased feeding of potential alternatives such as probiotics. However, the modes ...
