Assessing the biology of wheat-infecting Botryosphaeriaceae spp.
In 1999, a novel wheat disease was observed in Queensland, Australia. This disease induced grain shrivelling and was described as white grain disorder (WGD). WGD is now a documented disease across all mainland wheat-growing States. It was unknown where the causal fungus originated, how it was able to infect wheat, and whether there were any other non-grass hosts. Using molecular techniques and morphological analyses to examine fungi from infected grain, I...[Show more]
