Enhancing identification accuracy for powdery mildews using previously underexploited DNA loci
Publications can take time – it has been almost six months since I first submitted this paper and years since the start of the research towards it!
‘Enhancing identification…’ is published in the latest Mycologia journal – impact factor 2.7. The idea is to make identifying powdery mildew species possible, fast, and accurate – the stretch of DNA currently used to do this fails to tell the difference between closely related species, but one region trialled in this publication manages it!
