Phytophthora-ID includes over a hundred species and is regularly updated.
Easy analysis with graphics
Phytophthora-ID uses microsatellite data, calculates Bruvo's distance of the query and plots minimum spanning networks and distance trees with bootstrap support using an R interface
Common molecular markers
Phytophthora-ID uses the information of the nDNA region of the internal trascribed spacer (ITS) and the mtDNA cox spacer region
NEW: The current implementation of Phytophthora-ID (version 2.0) is completely revised to be faster and more stable.
Phytophthora-ID is a resource for the identification of Phytophthora species and genotypes using BLAST and R. The following resources are currently supported:
- Species identification using the ITS region
- Species identification using the cox spacer region
- Placement of either P. ramorum or P. infestans into clonal lineages based on multilocus microsatellite data
The site includes carefully curated reference databases for the ITS, the cox spacer region and microsatellite data for P. ramorum and P. infestans.
