Research Project: Population Structure of the Sudden Oak Death Pathogen Phytophthora Ramorum in North America

Location: Horticultural Crops Research

Project Number: 2072-22000-039-01
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jul 01, 2011
End Date: Dec 31, 2015

Objective:
To monitor the migration andpopulation structure of Phytophthora ramorum in North America using microsatellites

Approach:
Isolates will be obtained from federal and/or state agencies from Canada and the US as SOD is detected. Select isolates from Europe will be included as references isolates. Microsatellite genotypes will be determined using a range of microsatellite loci characterizing all extant clonal lineages.
