aBstract Fusarium graminearum infects and produces disease on 3 major crops in the US: barley, wheat and corn. In barley and wheat, the disease affects the development and quality of grain. In corn, the disease may affect kernels, but can also cause rot of the lower stalks. F. graminearum grows in each host uniquely, and each host responds differently to(More)
INTRODUCTION Fusarium head blight (FHB) is primarily caused by Fusarium graminearum in North America. The disease affects yield, by reducing harvestable kernel numbers and weight, and affects quality, by contaminating grains with mycotoxins produced by the fungal pathogens. FHB management is mainly through use of wheat cultivars with moderate FHB resistance(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Begonia fimbristipula (Begoniaceae) is a medicinal herb distributed in the Chinese provinces of Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Hainan, Hunan, Jiangxi, and Zhejiang, and it is on the verge of extinction due to habitat destruction and deterioration of its ecosystem. Here we developed a set of highly polymorphic microsatellite markers for(More)
INTRODUCTION Trichothecene mycotoxins produced by Fusarium graminearum include deoxynivalenol (DON) and its derivatives 3-acetyl nivalenol (3ADON), 15-acetyl nivalenol (15ADON), and nivalenol (NIV). Based on the profi le of trichothecenes produced, the fungal isolates can be identifi ed and grouped as one of the chemotypes, 3ADON, 15ADON, and NIV. In recent(More)
