Phytophthora infestans, the causal agent of late blight, is a major threat to potato production in northwestern Europe. Before 1980, the worldwide population of P. infestans outside Mexico appeared to be asexual and to consist of a single clonal lineage of A1 mating type characterized by a single genotype. It is widely believed that new strains migrated into Europe in 1976 and that this led to subsequent population changes including the introduction of the A2 mating type. The population… 
Increased Difficulties to Control Late Blight in Tunisia Are Caused by a Genetically Diverse Phytophthora infestans Population Next to the Clonal Lineage NA-01.
TLDR
Despite the massive import of potato seed from Europe, the P. infestans population in Tunisia was found to be clearly distinct and it was demonstrated that the four major clonal lineages found in the Netherlands and also in other European countries could not be found in Tunisia.
LATE BLIGHT DISEASE OF POTATO AND ITS MANAGEMENT
TLDR
An increasing severity of late blight in many potato growing areas, a shift in pathogen population toward increased specific virulence and an increasing tolerance to the most effective late blight specific fungicides suggests a need to develop an appropriate disease management strategy based on information technology.
Virulence of Phytophthora infestans isolates from potato in Spain
The oomycete Phytophthora infestans is responsible for the disease known as late blight in potato and tomato. It is the plant pathogen that has caused the greatest impact on humankind so far and,
Reduced efficacy of fluazinam against Phytophthora infestans in the Netherlands
TLDR
The finding of a new clonal lineage of P. infestans in the Netherlands and the reduced efficacy of fluazinam to control one of the EU_33_A2 isolates in field experiments carried out in 2011 and 2015 under high disease pressure are presented.
Characterization of the Potato Late Blight Pathogen Phytophthora infestans in Tunisia
This mini-review focus on summarizing different phenotypic and genotypic analysis recorded on Phytophthora infestans population collected from the Northern area of Tunisia. Here, we demonstrated that
Distribution of mating types, metalaxyl sensitivity and virulence races of Phytophthora infestans in Estonia.
TLDR
The Estonian population of P. infestans was characterised with mating type, sensitivity to metalaxyl and virulence on potato R-gene differentials, confirming the high diversity of the population.
Analysis of the lineage of Phytophthora infestans isolates using mating type assay, traditional markers, and next generation sequencing technologies
TLDR
To manage this disease, it is important to understand the genetic divergence of P. infestans isolates as well as breeding of resistant cultivars to facilitate the elimination of the late blight disease.
Analysis of the lineage of Phytophthora infestans isolates using mating type assay, traditional markers, and next generation sequencing technologies
TLDR
To manage this disease, it is important to understand the genetic divergence of P. infestans isolates as well as breeding of resistant cultivars to facilitate the elimination of the late blight disease.
Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of Italian Phytophthora infestans isolates
TLDR
Genetic analyses of the single-sequence repeats and of the internal transcribed spacers gave similar results, although SSRs gave the best discrimination of genotypes, and tomato-derived isolates showed fungicide sensitivity, confirming previous reports.
Distribution of mating types, metalaxyl sensitivity and virulence races of Phytophthora infestans isolates collected from potato fields in Estonia
Potato late blight, caused by the oomycete Phytophthora infestans, is a destructive potato disease, causing considerable crop loss worldwide. As the late blight pathogen population is diverse and

Molecular genetic evidence for a new sexually reproducing population of Phytophthora infestans in Europe
TLDR
It is concluded that after the introduction of the new A1 and A2 mating type population in The Netherlands P.infestans reproduces sexually and forms oospores, and it is likely that oospore play an important role in the epidemiology of potato late blight.
Variation in Phytophthora infestans: sources and implications
TLDR
From the results presented in this thesis, it is clear that the introduction of a sexually reproducing population of P. infestans in the Netherlands has had a major impact on late blight epidemics and population biology of the late blight pathogen.
Monitoring virulence and mating type of Phytophthora infestants in the Netherlands in 2004 and 2005
TLDR
The goal of the work described in this paper was to collect and characterize P.infestans isolates in the Netherlands in 2004 and 2005 to gain insight in developments in the virulence spectrum of the Dutch P. infestans population.
Sexual reproduction in Phytophthora infestans
TLDR
The results clearly indicate that the Swedish populations of P. infestans are influenced by sexual reproduction, and studies of the genetic diversity indicate that sexual reproduction has an effect on the population structure in Sweden and the Nordic region as a whole.
The Impact of oospores of Phytophthora infestans on late blight epidemics
TLDR
Several aspects of the ecology of oospores of Phytophthora infestans were studied in the Netherlands using both observational and experimental methods and a fungicide application following infection of plants with an A1 and A2 mating type strain significantly reduced the number of ospores produced as well as oospore viability.
The biology of Phytophthora infestans at its center of origin.
TLDR
It is now apparent that Mexico is the center of origin not only of the potato late blight pathogen P. infestans, but also of several related Phytophthora species including P. mirabilis, P. ipomoeae, and possibly P. phaseoli, and the hypothesis is that these Phytophile species evolved sympatrically from one ancestral host through adaptive radiation onto their respective four host families.
The occurrence of the A2 mating type of Phytophthora infestans in the Netherlands; significance and consequences
TLDR
The significance of the presence of A1 and A2 mating type isolates in the Netherlands is reviewed and sexual reproduction can occur and its consequences for the control of potato late blight are discussed.
Markers, old and new, for examining Phytophthora infestans diversity
TLDR
Some key applications are reviewed, some changes in approach are recommended and the status and potential of new and existing methods for probing P. infestans genetic diversity are reported on.
Phenotypic and genetic variation in Finnish potato‐late blight populations, 1997–2000
TLDR
Most of the regional variation inMetalaxyl sensitivity was also linked to mating type, as both metalaxyl resistance and the A1 mating type were most common in the north and south-west of Finland.
Phenotypic and genotypic diversity of Phytophthora infestans populations in Scotland (1995–97)
TLDR
Many factors point to an A2 population restricted by its sensitivity to phenylamides, but the presence of mixed mating type samples, an increasing frequency of isolates of intermediate metalaxyl resistance and the extent of the AFLP diversity suggest occasional sexual recombination, and thus gene flow, between groups.
