Colletotrichum truncatum is one of the most economically important fungal pathogen causing anthracnose disease in pre and post-harvest stages of many crops worldwide. Little information is available in the literature on the genetic analysis and demographic history of this fungal pathogen. In the present study nucleotide sequence data of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region were analyzed for C. truncatum isolates infecting chili and other crops worldwide to determine a metageographic pattern… CONTINUE READING
