Many species of Phytophthora are significant pathogens of plants of agricultural, forestry and native plant systems throughout the world. Of these, Phytophthora cinnamomi is of particular significance due to its broad host range and worldwide distribution.

CPSM’s successful bid to have the P. cinnamomi genome sequenced through the Joint Genome Institute’s Community Sequencing Program gives many Phytophthora researchers the opportunity to collaborate and unlock some of the central conundrums of this pathogen including, but not limited to its extraordinarily wide host range, response to control measures and diagnostics.

The proposed approach and expected outcomes, along with opportunities for collaboration will be presented and discussed.
