About

We redesigned Phytophthora-ID from the ground up in version 2.0 so it is now faster and more stable. We have also developed a new tool for multilocus genotyping of P. ramorum and P. infestans. We hope you enjoy the current implementation.

The sequence based identification module of Phytophthora-ID was created by the Grünwald lab in collaboration with Everett Hansen and Frank Martin, with funding from the Pacific Southwest Research Station, USDA-ARS and the US Forest Service.

The genotype identification module of Phytophthora-ID was created by the Grünwald lab in collaboration with Howard Judelson, Bill Fry, Chris Smart, and Jean Ristaino, with funding from USDA-NIFA and USDA-ARS.

If you use Phytophthora-ID for multilocus genotype identification of P. ramorum please cite the following references for genotyping protocols, analysis, and interpretation as appropriate:

If you use Phytophthora-ID for multilocus genotype identification of P. infestans please cite the following references for genotyping protocols, analysis, and interpretation as appropriate:

The Phytophthora-ID (v. 2.0) website was built by Javier Tabima and Nik Grünwald. The BLAST engine was implemented by Javier Tabima. The R functions for visualizing genetic relationships among multilocus genotypes were written by Zhian Kamvar and Javier Tabima as part of the poppr R package and implemented by Javier Tabima and Nik Grünwald. The ITS database is curated by Val Fieland and Nik Grünwald. The cox spacer DB is curated by Frank Martin. The microsatellite datasets were put together by Meg Larsen, Sydney Everhart and Nik Grünwald.
