LISTED: Research and Markets Ltd

This is a long-time spammer (original link dead; link to archived copy) but we wonder if it has anything to do with science as such. Their spam this time has to do with a book on The Ecological Genomics of Fungi, and the addresses spammed are, predictably, obtained from the PubMed.

Spam contents:

This unique book covers a broad diversity of fungal systems and provides unique insight into the functions of those fungi in various ecosystems – from soil, to plant, to human. Bringing together fungal genomic information on a variety of lifestyles and traits, the book covers saprotrophism, pathogenesis (including biotrophs, hemibiotrophs, necrotrophs) and symbiosis. Advances in high-throughput sequencing now offer unprecedented opportunities for identification of novel key molecular mechanisms controlling plant-microbe interactions, evolution of fungi and developmentally- and ecologically-relevant traits, this book explores how these massive streams of fungal sequences can be exploited to gain a deeper understanding of the evolution of fungi and their ecological role.

Although tremendous progress has been made in recent years in fungal genomics, thanks to the sequencing of over one hundred fungal genomes, until now no book has used this information to bridge fungal genomics, molecular ecology and ecology. Edited by a recognized leader in fungal genomics and soil metagenomics with over a decade of experience, Genomics & Metagenomics for Harnessing the Ecology of Fungi will be a useful resource for the experienced as well as the new researchers entering the field.

  1. Asyncos

    Also seeing them at UK Fasthosts using new domain with valid SPF.

    Sig still gives their Guinness Centre, Taylors Lane, Dublin address. List “subscription” handled by URLs.

    Senderbase has them down to -1.6 already, so they’re about to vanish off my radar.

  2. RocketScientist Post author has been listed since November 14, 2014. is now listed. Thank you.

  3. RocketScientist Post author is AS30900 (Web World Ireland), not Fasthosts, btw.

    Fasthosts have been kind enough to show Research and Markets the door, so and the abovementioned single IPs in and have been delisted as of July 18, 2016.

    Web World Ireland have been kind enough to show Research and Markets the door, so and single IPs in it have been delisted as of August 9, 2016.

    All entries in AS31122 have been delisted as Dediserve informed us their customer had terminated Research and Markets long ago.

    Listed – Research and Markets still spamming, earliest listings for this spammer in this network go back to the day we started, March 4, 2014.
