The objective of the project is to develop a systematic approach for designing molecular markers for the detection and identification of different formae speciales of F. oxysporum.
Next generation sequencing technology will be used to generate a dataset of genomic sequences that can be used in a computer pipeline that identifies unique sequences that can be targeted for diagnostic marker development.
