Sequence characterized amplified polymorphic markers for the pitch canker pathogen, Fusarium circinatum
Molecular Ecology Notes 2 (4), 577-580
Abstract: Fusarium circinatum is the causal agent of pitch canker disease of pines. This pathogen is thought to have originated in Central America and currently poses a serious threat to commercial pine plantations in many areas of the world. In this study, polymorphic molecular markers were developed for F. circinatum using the internal short sequence repeats-polymerase chain reaction (ISSR-PCR) technique. Nine sequence characterized amplified polymorphic markers were developed. Thirty-two putative alleles were observed among 103 F. circinatum isolates from different geographical areas using the nine polymorphic markers. These sequence characterized amplified polymorphic markers can be used as genetic tools in populations studies of F. circinatum.
