Potato blight tracking in Europe

A team of researchers examining the ongoing evolution of the European population of the potato late blight pathogen now report on the 2016 data. Over 1600 samples were genotyped from 26 countries and entered into the EuroBlight database. More than 70% of the samples were of defined clonal lineages that have been observed in previous seasons. Some…

Potato blight tracking in Europe - 2013-2015

A team of researchers tracking the 2015 population of the potato late blight pathogen have added to the 2013 and 2014 data to provide three years of data on the spatial pattern of pathogen genetic diversity that visualises the distribution and diversity of dominant clones and reveals novel genetically diverse isolates in some regions.

First step towards global attack on potato blight

European researchers and companies concerned with the potato disease phytophthora will work more closely with parties in other parts of the world. The first move was made during the biennial meeting of the European network EuroBlight, held in Romania earlier this month. Colleagues from North-America, South-America and Asia were also invited.

Potato blight mapped in Europe - 2014

A team of researchers tracking the 2014 population of the potato late blight pathogen have added to the 2013 data to extend the spatial diversity plots and combine this with novel genetic analysis tools that visualise the distribution and diversity of dominant clones and reveals novel genetically diverse isolates in some regions.

EuroBlight at the ALAP meeting in Bogota, Colombia

Huub Schepers: “EuroBlight is a novel approach that can be expanded outside Europe. We aim to help scientists and the industry in Latin America to start a network as EuroBlight to increase the knowledge about phytophthora and how to control it.”

Potato blight mapped in Europe

A team of researchers tracking the 2013 population of the potato late blight pathogen have, for the first time, spatially plotted it’s diversity and shown areas dominated by clones contrasting with novel genetically diverse isolates in other regions.
