Alternaria blight caused by Alternaria brassicicola (Schwein.) Wiltshire and A. brassicae (Berk.) Sacc., is one of the most important disease of rapeseed–mustard, characterized by the formation of spots on leaves, stem, and siliquae with premature defoliation and stunting of growth. These two species are very difficult to differentiate based on disease symptoms or spore morphology. Therefore, the aim of present investigation was to identify and characterize transferable microsatellite loci from… 
Novel microsatellite markers for the analysis of Phytophthora capsici populations and Host Resistance for Management of Phytophthora Blight of Pepper
TLDR
Improved management of Phytophthora blight in peppers by evaluating resistance of commercial and experimental lines of peppers in the greenhouse and the field to P. capsici resistance and highlighting the usefulness of the 11 SSRs to characterize the population structure of P. Capsici populations for better deployment of durable pepper resistance.
Development of multiplex PCR assay for detection of Alternaria brassicae, A. brassicicola and Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris in crucifers.
Among biotic stresses, Alternaria leaf spots caused by Alternaria brassicae and A. brassicicola and black rot caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris are major limiting factors in brassica
Population Differentiation of Wheat Leaf Rust Fungus Puccinia triticina in South Asia
TLDR
Analysis of molecular variance revealed significantly high genetic variation within Pt population, offering valuable information for framing suitable disease management strategies through appropriate region-specific gene deployment and improving the understanding of the population biology and evolution of Pt in the Indian subcontinent.
Diversity Assessment of Antagonistic Trichoderma Species by Comparative Analysis of Microsatellites
TLDR
This work compared microsatellites of three taxonomically different Trichoderma species such as T. asperellum, T. citrinoviride, and T. longibrachiatum to highlight abundance and diversity of microsatellite patterns in all the test genomes.
Identification of Novel Microsatellite Markers to Assess the Population Structure and Genetic Differentiation of Ustilago hordei Causing Covered Smut of Barley
TLDR
The newly developed neutral SSR markers are highly polymorphic within U. hordei and will be useful for revealing evolutionary history and providing deep insight into the population dynamics of U. hordesi in India as well as facilitating developing management strategies for CS of barley.
Comparative analysis of microsatellites in five different antagonistic Trichoderma species for diversity assessment
TLDR
Results indicated that relative abundance and relative density of SSRs were higher in T. asperellum followed by T. reesei and T. atroviride, while Tri-nucleotide repeats were invariably the most abundant in all species.
Molecular and physiological characterization of Fusarium strains associated with different diseases in date palm
TLDR
It is anticipated that the assessment of genetic diversity, effect of temperature on hyphal growth and pathogenicity of potent pathogenic Fusarium strains recovered from date palm-growing locations in Saudi Arabia can help in effectively controlling these pathogens.
PATHOLOGIACL STUDIES ON Alternaria brassicicola AND Phoma lingam LEAF SPOT DISEASES ON CANOLA PLANTS UNDER GREENHOUSE CONDITIONS
TLDR
Black leaf spot and blackleg diseases of canola were studied during three successive growing seasons in four Governorates and the disease severity caused by A. brassicicola was significantly reduced by Carbendazim while, opposite results were obtained with P. lingam.
Molecular Diagnostic Assay for Rapid Detection of Flag Smut Fungus (Urocystis agropyri) in Wheat Plants and Field Soil
TLDR
The reported molecular assay is very specific for U. agropyri and requires less time and man power over conventional diagnosis which is often confused by coinciding morphological features of closely related fungal pathogens, and therefore, it can be used for quarantine surveillance of flag smut.

Cross-species transferability of microsatellite markers from Fusarium oxysporum for the assessment of genetic diversity in Fusarium udum
TLDR
This is the first set of EST SSR markers developed and assessed for the variability, genetic analysis and evolutionary relationships of the F. udum population and three markers were found highly informative for genetic characterization and useful in distinguishing the polymorphism rate of the markers at specific locus.
Detection of genetic variation in Alternaria brassicicola using AFLP fingerprinting
TLDR
AFLPs provide a reliable tool for identifying A. brassicicola and suggest a means for generating and maintaining significant variation, and multiple isolates from particular locations tended to cluster together, implying the potential for population structure.

TLDR
This data represents a valuable source of molecular markers for use in population genetics, genetic mapping and strain fingerprinting studies of oomycetes, and illustrates how genomic databases can be exploited to generate data-mining filters for SSRs before experimental validation.
RAPD analysis of three Alternaria species pathogenic to crucifers

TLDR
Nine polymorphic markers obtained in this study clearly demonstrate the utility of newly developed markers in establishing genetic relationships among different isolates of F. oxysporum.
Expansion of Genetic Diversity in Randomly Mating Founder Populations of Alternaria brassicicola Infecting Cakile maritima in Australia
TLDR
Analysis of microsatellite markers in the interaction between Cakile maritima and the fungal pathogen Alternaria brassicicola suggested that fungal populations were more likely to have experienced a recent population expansion than a population bottleneck, and it was suggested that A. Brassicicol has been introduced into Australia multiple times, potentially increasing the diversity and size of any A. brassicola populations already present there.
