More than 300 isolates of the Irish potato famine fungus, Phytophthora infestans, collected in 20 countries on five continents, were analyzed for genetic variation at the mating type and two allozyme… Expand
Analysis of genotypic diversity data for populations of microorganisms.
ABSTRACT Estimation of genotypic diversity is an important component of the analysis of the genetic structure of plant pathogen and microbial populations. Estimates of genotypic diversity are a… Expand
Re-emergence of Potato and Tomato Late Blight in the United States.
Cloning and genetic analyses of two highly polymorphic, moderately repetitive nuclear DNAs from Phytophthora infestans
SummaryRandomly selected clones from a Phytophthora infestans partial genomic library were characterized by hybridizing individual clones to Southern blots of total genomic DNA digested with the… Expand
Resurgence of the Irish Potato Famine Fungus
rope and led to the Irish potato famine, the plant pathogenic fungus Phytophthora infestans is again creating a major plant health problem. Migrations of virulent and fungicide-resistant strains in… Expand
Use of cellulose-acetate electrophoresis for rapid identification of allozyme genotypes of Phytophthora infestans.
Cellulose-acetate electrophoresis (CAE) provided excellent resolution of allozyme genotypes of Phytophthora infestans at the two loci Glucose-6-phosphate isomerase (Gpi) and Peptidase (Pep). The… Expand
Population Genetics and Intercontinental Migrations of Phytophthora Infestans
Our understanding of the population genetics of Phytophthora infestans has increased dramatically during the past decade. In addition to satisfying scientific curiosity, we expect that this… Expand
Migration from northern Mexico as the probable cause of recent genetic changes in populations of Phytophthora infestans in the United States and Canada.
Isolates of Phytophthora infestans from five U.S. states (California, Florida, New York, Washington, and Wisconsin) and one Canadian province (British Columbia) collected between October 1987 and… Expand
A second world‐wide migration and population displacement of Phytophthora infestans?
The appearance of the A2 mating type (previously restricted to central Mexico) in Europe during the 1980s prompted an investigation of the genetic make-up of European populations using allozyme loci… Expand
