Late blight caused by Phytophthora infestans is the most important disease of potato. Many efforts have been made to understand molecular mechanism of the durable resistance to address the challenge raised by rapid evolution of the pathogen. A pathogenesis related protein (PR) gene StPRp27 was previously isolated from the potato leaves challenged by P.(More)
High levels of resistance to Phytophthora infestans in Solanum are predominantly based on the gene-for-gene interaction. Identification of hitherto unknown R genes is essential for future pyramiding approaches. This could be achieved either through classic introgression breeding or through cisgenesis and could lead to sustainable control of late blight.(More)
Scaffolding is an essential step in the genome assembly process. Current methods based on large fragment paired-end reads or long reads allow an increase in contiguity but often lack consistency in repetitive regions, resulting in fragmented assemblies. Here, we describe a novel tool to link assemblies to a genome map to aid complex genome reconstruction by(More)
