Initial assessment of gene diversity for the oomycete pathogen Phytophthora infestans based on expressed sequences.

A total of 1000 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) corresponding to 760 unique sequence sets were identified using random sequencing of clones from a cDNA library constructed from mycelial RNA of Phytophthora infestans. A number of software programs, represented by a relational database and an analysis pipeline, were developed for the automated analysis and… CONTINUE READING
