Cover for Characterizing <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Phytophthora</i> populations.

A population is a group of individuals sharing a unique pool of genetic variation. For Phytophthora, populations often contain a large proportion of mitotically derived isolates known as clonal lineages. The phenotypes, proteins and DNA fragments, single nucleotide variation and the whole genome,...

Cover for <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Phytophthora</i> species hybrids: a novel threat to crops and natural ecosystems.

There are now more than 100 species in the genus Phytophthora. Due to their rarity, atypical morphology or, conversely, morphology resembling an existing species, interspecific Phytophthora hybrids are difficult to detect. The artificially created hybrids through sexual crosses (P. mirabilis and P. ...
