Microsatellite and mating type primers for the maize and sorghum pathogen, Exserohilum turcicum

Abstract

Northern corn leaf blight (NCLB) is a destructive foliar disease of maize that results from infection with the fungal pathogen, Exserohilum turcicum. Annual yield losses incurred from NCLB in South Africa may exceed 50 % when environmental conditions optimal for disease development prevail. In order to study the genetic diversity of E. turcicum, 13… (More)
