Lead Researcher (PI): Borhan, Hossein
Institution: Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada
Total WGRF Funding: $224,250
Co-Funders: None
Start Date: 2012
Project Length: 3 Years
Objectives:

To generate DNA markers from the genome of Leptosphaeria maculans the causal agent of blackleg disease of canola. To identify markers for known avirulence gene and to tag other potential avirulence/virulence genes inferred from the Leptosphaeria genome sequence.
