Research Project: Population Diversity of Pythium cryptoirregulare

Location: Horticultural Crops Research

Project Number: 2072-22000-043-07-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2015
End Date: Aug 31, 2020

Objective:
To determine the population genetic structure of Pythium cryptoirregulare.

Approach:
This research will obtain isolates of Pythium cryptoirregulare from rhododendron grown at ornamental nurseries and investigate the population genetic structure of this pathogen by SSR and multilocus sequence analyses for similarities.
