Zaveri, A.; Mann, R.C.; Kaur, J.K.; Henry, F.J.; Wallwork, Hugh; Linde, Celeste; Edwards, Jacqueline


Spermospora avenae causes the economically important red leather leaf disease of oats, which reduces grain yield and hay quality. It was first reported in the USA in 1936 and subsequently in Australia in 1978. Despite this, its phylogenetic placement is unknown, attributed merely to Ascomycota. Twenty-three S. avenae single spore isolates were obtained from affected crops in South Australia and western Victoria from 2008 to 2016. DNA was extracted from each and sequenced using Illumina...[Show more]
