Variation in competitive ability among isolates of Aspergillus flavus from different vegetative compatibility groups during maize infection.
ABSTRACT Aspergillus flavus, the primary causal agent of aflatoxin contamination, includes many genetically diverse vegetative compatibility groups (VCGs). Competitive ability during infection ofExpand

Aspergillus flavus diversity on crops and in the environment can be exploited to reduce aflatoxin exposure and improve health
Humans and animals are exposed to aflatoxins, toxic carcinogenic fungal metabolites, through consumption of contaminated food and feed. Aspergillus flavus, the primary causal agent of crop aflatoxinExpand

Sewage and community shower drains are environmental reservoirs of Fusarium solani species complex group 1, a human and plant pathogen.
In two recent studies, clinical isolates in the Fusarium solani species complex (FSSC) were sequenced; one of the most common lineages was FSSC Group 1 (FSSC 1), a phylogenetic species that isExpand

Identification of Fusarium solani f. sp. cucurbitae Race 1 and Race 2 with PCR and Production of Disease-Free Pumpkin Seeds.
Fusarium solani f. sp. cucurbitae causes a fruit rot of cucurbits and is classified into two races that are actually distinct species: F. solani f. sp. cucurbitae race 1 (Fsc1) and race 2 (Fsc2).Expand

Influence of plant host species on intraspecific competition during infection by Aspergillus flavus
Compositions of Aspergillus flavus populations determine the extent to which crops become contaminated with aflatoxins. In the current study, influences of diverse crop hosts on competition among A.Expand
