The plant pathogenic fungus, Cercospora beticola, causes the most important foliage disease of sugar beet. A previous study has shown that isolates of opposite mating types are present in equal proportions in natural populations; therefore, the aim of this study was to develop highly reproducible polymorphic markers for analysing populations of C. beticola. Five microsatellite and four single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers were developed that allow rapid screening of genetic diversity in...[Show more]
