Genotypic and phenotypic characterization ofPhytophthora infestansin South Korea during 2009–2016 reveals clonal reproduction and absence of EU_13_A2 genotype
Monitoring of the Phytophthora infestans population contributes to a more efficient integrated pest management-based control strategy for potato late blight control in South Korea.
Global historic pandemics caused by the FAM-1 genotype of the Irish potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans
The data from historic samples suggest the FAM-1 genotype was widespread, diverse, and spread more widely than US-1, and likely spread during global colonization from Europe.
Lack of gene flow between Phytophthora infestans populations of two neighboring countries with the largest potato production
This study made a direct inference concerning gene flow in the Irish famine pathogen Phytophthora infestans between two of its hosts (potato and tomato) as well as between China and India, and found that eEF‐1α gene was highly conserved and point mutation was the only mechanism generating any sequence variation.
Mating Type and Aggressiveness of Phytophthora infestans (Mont.) de Bary in Potato-Growing Areas of Punjab, Pakistan, 2017–2018 and Identification of Genotype 13_A2 in 2019–2020
Genotyping of samples collected in 2019–2020 showed the widespread occurrence of the EU_13_A2 clonal lineage in the same districts of Pakistan and supported the hypothesis that the A2 mating type isolates belonged to an aggressiveClonal lineage such as 13_A1 that has been reported in other countries in the region.
Phytophthora infestans: the itinerant invader; “late blight”: the persistent disease

While the disease persists in a location, the genotypes of P. infestans may change dramatically, and these exotic strains may not respond to traditional disease management techniques and thus may cause considerable damage which can lead to significant human suffering.
A global surveillance system for crop diseases
A Global Surveillance System (GSS) is proposed that will extend and adapt established biosecurity practices and networking facilities into LICs, enabling countries and regions to quickly respond to emerging disease outbreaks to stabilize food supplies, enhancing global food protection.
Insights into evolving global populations of Phytophthora infestans via new complementary mtDNA haplotype markers and nuclear SSRs
These fine-scale nuclear and maternally inherited mitochondrial markers enabled a greater level of discrimination among isolates than previously available and provided complementary perspectives on evolutionary questions relating to the diversity, phylogeography and the origins and spread of clonal lineages of P. infestans.

Mycological herbaria contain important records of plant biodiversity and past outbreaks of plant disease. Mycological herbaria have been used to (1) understand the life history of plant pathogens;
Large sub-clonal variation in Phytophthora infestans from recent severe late blight epidemics in India
The population structure of the Phytophthora infestans populations that caused the recent 2013–14 late blight epidemic in eastern India and northeastern India was examined and suggested genetic contributions from UK and Europe in addition to a sub-structure based on the geographical location within India.
