The “Stubbs collection” has resolved worldwide diversity of the yellow rust fungus in the past

Two new articles from GRRC -The first is a recovery and a virulence phenotyping study of old isolates from the collection. The second is a SSR marker based study of the worldwide population structure of P. striiformis in the past

New cereal varieties will need less pesticide

Scientists from Aarhus University and commercial breeders and leading foreign research institutions will in partnership develop new varieties of wheat that are resistant to a number of devastating fungal diseases. The project has been granted 17 million Danish kroner from Innovation Fund Denmark.

New article: Sexual structures and recombination of the wheat rust fungus Puccinia striiformis on Berberis vulgaris

An isolate of the basidiomycete Puccinia striiformis, which causes yellow (stripe) rust on wheat, was selfed on the newly discovered alternate host, Berberis vulgaris. This allowed a study of the segregation of molecular markers and virulence in the progeny isolates, and of the development of fungal sexual structures and spore forms.

New article: Origin, Migration Routes and Worldwide Population Genetic Structure of the Wheat Yellow Rust Pathogen Puccinia striiformis f.sp. tritici

This collaborative work between Denmark, France and Pakistan describe the worldwide population structure of wheat yellow rust and identifies the centre of diversity of the pathogen in Himalayan and near Himalayan regions.

New article: New races of Puccinia striiformis found in Europe reveal race-specificity of long-term effective adult plant resistance in wheat

These results stress the need of maintaining high genetic diversity for disease resistance in wheat and of using pathogen isolates of diverse origin in studies of host resistance genetics.

Additional support in the fight against yellow rust in organic farming

Organic farmers do not have many tools at their disposal against yellow rust in wheat and triticale apart from resistant varieties and good advice. Scientists from Aarhus University are now developing a better toolbox.
