Low genetic diversity of Rhynchosporium commune in Iran, a secondary centre of barley origin

Seifollahi, Elaheh; Sharifnabi, B.; Javan-Nikkhah, Mohammad; Linde, Celeste


Rhynchosporium commune is a destructive pathogen of barley, causing leaf scald. Previous microsatellite studies used Syria as a representative of cultivated barley's centre of origin, the Fertile Crescent. These suggested that R. commune and Hordeum vulgare (cultivated barley) did not co‐evolve in the host's centre of origin. The present study compares R. commune populations from Syria with those from Iran, which represents a secondary centre of origin for barley at the eastern edge of the...[Show more]
