Characteristics of Colletotrichum populations associated with fruit anthracnose on chili pepper in Fiji

C. simmondsii is the predominant pathogen causing chili fruit anthracnose in Fiji. Sequence variation of additional housekeeping genes should be adopted to further understand the phylogenetic relationship of Colletotrichum species associated with chili fruit anthracnose in Fiji and those present in the other parts of the world.

Action Against Anthracnose

This project proposes to combine anthracnose resistance genes from two less widely cultivated chili species (C. chinense and C. baccatum) into the most commonly cultivated chili pepper, C. annuum. The research is expected to benefit chili pepper producers and seed companies in Bangladesh.
