Characterization of Rhizoctonia solani from potato in Great Britain
This is the first investigation which provides evidence of the relative AG composition of R. solani populations causing disease in potato crops in Great Britain.
Molecular techniques for pathogen identification and fungus detection in the environment
In the last decade, effective amplification platforms, probe development and various quantitative PCR technologies have revolutionized research on fungal detection and identification.
Diaporthe diversity and pathogenicity revealed from a broad survey of grapevine diseases in Europe
The present study improves the understanding of the species associated with several disease symptoms on V. vinifera plants, and provides useful information for effective disease management.
Infection of potato by Rhizoctonia solani: effect of anastomosis group.
Yield losses were greatest and tuber numbers smallest in plots inoculated with an AG8 isolate, suggesting that root infection is important in determining quantitative yield loss.
A TaqMan real-time PCR assay for the detection of Phytophthora ‘taxon Agathis’ in soil, pathogen of Kauri in New Zealand
It is concluded that the TaqMan real-time PCR assay offers a more time-efficient method for detection of PTA in soil than existing methods.

This is the first report of R. solani and BNR on potato in South Africa using a molecular-based approach, and isolates of AG 2-2IIIB, AG 4HG-III, and AG R were the most aggressive in causing stem canker while AG 3-PT, AG 5, andAG R caused black scurf.

The first application of high resolution X-ray micro Computed Tomography and real-time PCR to study host–pathogen interactions in situ and elucidate the mechanism of Rhizoctonia damping-off disease over a 6-day period offers the first steps in advancing current understanding of soil-borne pathogen behavior in situ at the pore scale.
Patterns of plant pest introductions in Europe and Africa
Elephant Hide and Growth Cracking on Potato Tubers Caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG3-PT in South Africa.
Koch's postulates were proven for R. solani AG3-PT causing scab or elephant hide symptom and cracking in potato tubers in South Africa and should be considered in addition to Streptomyces as a cause.
