Nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region as a universal DNA barcode marker for Fungi
TLDR
Among the regions of the ribosomal cistron, the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region has the highest probability of successful identification for the broadest range of fungi, with the most clearly defined barcode gap between inter- and intraspecific variation. Expand
Prospects for fungus identification using CO1 DNA barcodes, with Penicillium as a test case
TLDR
Analysis of patterns of sequence divergences in this gene region for 38 fungal taxa with full CO1 sequences suggested that CO1 could be effective in species recognition, and designed primers for a 545-bp fragment of CO1 and generated sequences for multiple strains from 58 species of Penicillium subgenus Penicilla and 12 allied species. Expand
DNA barcoding of oomycetes with cytochrome c oxidase subunit I and internal transcribed spacer
TLDR
The results described in this paper indicate that COI sequencing and the dataset generated are a valuable addition to the currently available oomycete taxonomy resources, and that both COI, the default DNA barcode supported by GenBank, and ITS, the de facto barcode accepted by the oomyCete and mycology community, are acceptable and complementary DNA barcodes to be used for identification of oomy cetes.

A role for jasmonate in pathogen defense of Arabidopsis.
TLDR
It is indicated that jasmonate is essential for plant defense against Pythium and, because of the high exposure of plant roots to Pythium inoculum in soil, may well be fundamental to survival of plants in nature. Expand
Genome sequence of the necrotrophic plant pathogen Pythium ultimum reveals original pathogenicity mechanisms and effector repertoire
TLDR
Access to the P. ultimum genome has revealed not only core pathogenic mechanisms within the oomycetes but also lineage-specific genes associated with the alternative virulence and lifestyles found within the pythiaceous lineages compared to the Peronosporaceae. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and taxonomy of the genus Pythium.
TLDR
Twenty-six species had ITS sequences identical or nearly identical to formerly described species, suggesting possible conspecificity and the importance of comparing ITS sequences of putative new species to the now available ITS database in order to avoid unwarranted new species names being introduced. Expand
Molecular Detection and Quantification of Pythium Species: Evolving Taxonomy, New Tools, and Challenges.
TLDR
The purpose of this article is to outline the current state-of-the-art in the detection and quantification of this important genus Pythium and introduce the reader to new changes in the taxonomy of this group. Expand
Herbicide interactions with fungal root pathogens, with special reference to glyphosate.
TLDR
Weeds are the most economically important of all pests with respect to sales of pesticides and limitations to crop yields and the protection or predisposition of crops to disease that is sometimes observed following the use of herbicides is of particular interest to plant pathologists. Expand
Identification and Quantification of Pathogenic Pythium spp. from Soils in Eastern Washington Using Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction.
TLDR
Variable regions of the internal transcribed spacer of the rDNA were used to design species-specific primers for detection and quantification of nine Pythium spp. Expand
Impacts of Molecular Diagnostic Technologies on Plant Disease Management.
TLDR
The application of ELISA and monoclonal antibody technologies in plant pathology has greatly improved the ability to detect plant pathogens and is increasing the understanding of, their ecology and epidemiology. Expand
