Name change: The correct name of the 'V. albo-atrum' strain used in this paper is now V. alfalfae.

Posted by Patrikin on 17 Jul 2013 at 23:46 GMT

The name of the 'Verticillium albo-atrum' strain VaMs.102 has changed. A taxonomic revision of Verticillium has shown that 'V. albo-atrum' strain VaMs.102 belongs to V. alfalfae instead (Inderbitzin et al., 2011), and is thus correctly referred to as V. alfalfae strain VaMs.102.
