Description: Its virulence and ability to spread rapidly throughout the world by various means establishes Phytophthora as one of the most important groups of plant pathogens. Discoveries of interspecific hybridization among Phytophthora species in nature, which could yield novel pathogens, further underscore the threat posed by members of this genus. The ability to accurately and rapidly identify the causal agent of a disease is crucial for developing effective regulatory and disease management strategies, and facilitates the monitoring of changes in pathogen communities as they respond to agricultural practices and environmental changes. The Phytophthora database (PD) (httpwww.phytophthoradb.org) project was initiated in 2005 to enhance our capability of rapid detection and diagnosis of Phytophthora spp. by archiving genotypic and phenotypic diversity of Phytophthora in a highly integrative cyber infrastructure that can easily be accessed and searched.

Keywords: Phytophthora disease, invasive pathogen, genomics, population genetics, systematics, taxonomy
