PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Evolution of scald and net form of net blotch

Evolution of cereal pathogens

Scald is a disease of barley potentially resulting in 30% yield losses under conducive conditions in Australia. Scald also infects barley grass which may provide opportunities for scald to evolve new virulence on the genetically diverse barley grass. This study

This project is open to Honours and PhD students
