Isolates of Peronospora effusa will be collected from the field and collaborators. DNA will be extracted and alignments of specific DNA sequences will be performed. Spore traps will be deployed near spinach fields for detection of the pathogen, and DNA extracted from spore trap samples also will be analyzed.
