Final Report: UM00031 - Monitoring virulence in Australian populations of the blackleg fungus

Plain text source: 
The project has focused on monitoring blackleg populations for virulence by exploiting markers for avirulence (Avr) genes in the fungus, which are complementary to resistance (Rlm) genes in the plant... Selection pressure acting on one avirulence gene can also influence other avirulence genes that are closely linked... Only two genes (LmCys2 and AvrLm6) have mutations in attacking isolates and are considered candidate genes...
