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

2017-04-25T05:44:20+00:00April 25th, 2017|Categories: APR2017, Recent Research|Tags: , , |

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.
