Research Project: Genetic Characterization of Cercospora arachidicola and Cercosporidium personatum

Location: Peanut Research

Project Number: 6604-21000-004-06
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Jan 01, 2014
End Date: Jun 30, 2015

Objective:
Sequence the genomes of the causal agents of early leaf spot (Cercospora arachidicola) and late leaf spot (Cercosporidium personatum) in peanut 1. Perform high throughput sequencing of both genomes. 2. Generate a database of genomic sequences that can be mined for pathogenicity genes 3. Use this database in the future to determine potential genetic differences among isolates of both pathogens

Approach:
Generate libraries, perform high throughput sequencing using different platforms, and assemble the sequences into a first draft for annotation using CLC-platform.
