New Plasmodiophora brassicae pathotypes the can overcome host resistance are emerging and there is currently no quick and easy way of identifying them.
To generate an effective, sensitive and rapid molecular assay (PCR-based) to identify abundance and diversity of P. brassicae pathotypes in soil and plant samples; and to use the genetic variability among pathotypes to establish their relationships and genes of interest related to infection.
This section will be updated upon completion of the project.
This molecular assay would help monitor the diversity and abundance of pathotypes found, ultimately supporting farmers in choosing cultivar selection and the development of canola with novel sources of resistance.
