R. F. Peixoto-Junior, Creste, S., Landell, M. G. A., Nunes, D. S., Sanguino, A., Campos, M. F., Vencovsky, R., Tambarussi, E. V., and Figueira, A., Genetic diversity among Puccinia melanocephala isolates from Brazil assessed using simple sequence repeat markers, vol. 13, pp. 7852-7863, 2014.

Brown rust (causal agent Puccinia melanocephala) is an important sugarcane disease that is responsible for large losses in yield worldwide. Despite its importance, little is known regarding the genetic diversity of this pathogen in the main Brazilian sugarcane cultivation areas. In this study, we characterized the genetic diversity of 34 P. melanocephala isolates from 4 Brazilian states using loci identified from an enriched simple sequence repeat (SSR) library.
