- ... Population genetic and phylogenetic studies showed that Phaeosphaeria nodorum is a member of a species complex that likely shares its center of origin with wheat (Triticum aestivum and Triticum durum). We examined the evolutionary history of three known necrotrophic effectors (NEs) produced by P. nodorum and compared them to neutral loci. We screened over 1000 individuals for the presence/absence ...
