• Extending the sRNAome of Apple by next-generation sequencing 

      Visser, Marike; Van der Walt, Anelda P.; Maree, Hans J.; Rees, D. Jasper G.; Burger, Johan T. (Public Library of Science, 2014-04)
      The global importance of apple as a fruit crop necessitates investigations into molecular aspects of the processes that influence fruit quality and yield, including plant development, fruit ripening and disease resistance. ...
    • High-throughput sequencing reveals small RNAs involved in ASGV infection 

      Visser, Marike; Maree, Hans J.; Rees, D. Jasper G.; Burger, Johan T. (BioMed Central, 2014)
      Background : Plant small RNAs (sRNAs) associated with virulent virus infections have been reported by previous studies, while the involvement of sRNAs in latent virus infection remains largely uncharacterised. Apple trees ...
    • In silico analysis of the grapefruit sRNAome, transcriptome and gene regulation in response to CTV-CDVd co-infection 

      Visser, Marike; Cook, Glynnis; Burger, Johan T.; Maree, Hans J. (BioMed Central, 2017)
      Background: Small RNA (sRNA) associated gene regulation has been shown to play a significant role during plant-pathogen interaction. In commercial citrus orchards co-infection of Citrus tristeza virus (CTV) and viroids ...
    • Next-generation sequencing for virus detection : covering all the bases 

      Visser, Marike; Bester, Rachelle; Burger, Johan T.; Maree, Hans J. (BioMed Central, 2016-06)
      Background: The use of next-generation sequencing has become an established method for virus detection. Efficient study design for accurate detection relies on the optimal amount of data representing a significant portion ...
