The subtelomeres of many microbial eukaryotes are highly enriched in genes with roles in niche adaptation. Host and cultivar specificity genes in the rice blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae also tend to be located near telomeres. In addition, the M. oryzae telomeres are highly variable chromosome regions. These observations suggested that plant pathogenic fungi might also use subtelomere regions for the amplification of genes with adaptive significance. Targeted sequencing of the M. oryzae… CONTINUE READING
