To elucidate the genetic mechanism of pathotype-dependent blight resistance in chickpea, F7-derived recombinant inbred lines from the intraspecific cross of PI 359075(1) (blight susceptible) × FLIP84-92C(2) (Blight resistant) were inoculated with pathotypes I and II of A. rabiei.

Characterization of chickpea differentials for pathogenicity assay of ascochyta blight and identification of chickpea accessions resistant to Didymella rabiei
Three chickPEa accessions showed a high level of resistance to both pathotypes, and can be employed as resistance sources in chickpea breeding programmes for resistance to ascochyta blight.
Genetics of Chickpea Resistance to Five Races of Fusarium Wilt and a Concise Set of Race Differentials for Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceris.
A concise set of differentials was developed to identify races of Fusarium oxysporum f.
Analysis of the Genome and Transcriptome of Cryptococcus neoformans var. grubii Reveals Complex RNA Expression and Microevolution Leading to Virulence Attenuation
The spectrum of mutations identified provides insights into the genetics underlying the micro-evolution of a laboratory strain, and identifies mutations involved in stress responses, mating efficiency, and virulence.
Screening techniques and sources of resistance to foliar diseases caused by major necrotrophic fungi in grain legumes
This review highlights the most consistent screening and scoring procedures that are simple to use and provide reliable results in the field and in controlled environments for necrotrophic pathogens of the cool season food legumes.
Vegetative compatibility groups of Verticillium dahliae from ornamental woody plants.

The assignment of most of the woody-plant isolates from Illinois to VCG1 was in sharp contrast to the diverse range of host plants from which the strains were isolated, suggesting that an important inoculum source of the pathogen in urban areas is from established populations in nurseries that get distributed along with transplanting trees.

Achievements and Challenges in Legume Breeding for Pest and Disease Resistance
The recent development of large scale phenotyping, genome sequencing and analysis of gene, protein and metabolite expressions can be of great help to further decipher plant-pathogen interactions and identify key resistance components that may be introgressed into crop plants through breeding.
Sclerotinia sclerotiorum populations infecting canola from China and the United States are genetically and phenotypically distinct.

Isolates in the Chinese population were unique in several aspects and heritabilities of the phenotypic traits were similar for both populations, and significant correlations were found among five phenotyping traits.
