Spread of 13_A2 lineage

Posted by David_EL_Cooke on 25 Oct 2012 at 13:53 GMT

Interesting to note that the 13_A2 lineage of Phytophthora infestans has now been reported in SW India (Chowdappa et al 2012) and China (Li et al 2012).

Chowdappa P, Kumar NBJ, Madhura S, Kumar MSP, Myers KL, Fry WE, Squires JN, Cooke, DEL (2012) Emergence of 13_A2 Blue lineage of Phytophthora infestans was responsible for severe outbreaks of late blight on tomato in South-West India. Journal of Phytopathology doi: 10.1111/jph.12031

Li, Y, van der Lee, T, Zhu, JH, Jin, GH, Lan, CZ, Zhu, SX, Zhang, RF, Liu, BW, Zhao, ZJ, Kessel, G, Huang, SW and Jacobsen, E (2012), Population structure of Phytophthora infestans in China – geographic clusters and presence of the EU genotype Blue_13.
