Draft genome sequence of Sclerospora graminicola, the pearl millet downy mildew pathogen. uri icon

abstract

  • Sclerospora graminicola pathogen is the most important biotic production constraints of pearl millet in India,Africa and other parts of the world. We report a de novo whole genome assembly and analysis of pathotype 1, oneof the most virulent pathotypes of S. graminicola from India. The draft genome assembly contained299,901,251 bp with 65,404 genes. This study may help understand the evolutionary pattern of pathogen andaid elucidation of effector evolution for devising effective durable resistance breeding strategies in pearl millet
