Colletotrichum DNA barcode database

By Bevan Weir, 29 October, 2012

The recent revisions of Colletotrichum taxonomy have been fantastic for stabilising and modernising our concepts of this important plant pathogen. However, many of the new species are very difficult to distinguish by morphology alone, and multiple gene sequences are required.

To facilitate gene sequence IDs, Ulrike Damm and Ewald Groenewald at CBS in the Netherlands have added all of the data from recently published Colletotrichum papers to the Q-Bank website, There are DNA sequences and morphological data from 107 species of Colletotrichum.
