Genome size variation in the pine fusiform rust pathogen Cronartium quercuum f.sp. fusiforme as determined by flow cytometry

Anderson, C. L.; Kubisiak, T. L.; Nelson, C. D.; Smith, J. A.; Davis, J. M.


The genome size of the pine fusiform rust pathogen Cronartium quercuum f.sp. fusiforme (Cqf) was determined by flow cytometric analysis of propidium iodide-stained, intact haploid pycniospores with haploid spores of two genetically well characterized fungal species, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Puccinia graminis f.sp. tritici, as size standards. The Cqf haploid genome was estimated at ~90 Mb, similar to other Pucciniales species for which reference genome sequences are available. Twenty-three...[Show more]
