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