Ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacers are highly divergent in the phytopathogenic ascomycete Fusarium sambucinum (Gibberella pulicaris)

Variation within the internal transcribed spacers (ITS1 and ITS2) and 5.8s ribosomal DNA gene of the heterothallic phytopathogenic filamentous fungus, Fusarium sambucinum (teleomorph=Gibberella pulicaris), was examined in 86 strains from diverse geographical locations by PCR amplification and direct sequencing in order to measure intraspecific divergence… CONTINUE READING
