Puccinia triticina (ASM15152v1)

The inclusion of the Puccinia triticina genome in Ensembl Genomes has been funded by the award of a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to EBI, the Broad Institute, and the USDA-ARS Cereal Disease Laboratory.

About Puccinia triticina

Puccinia triticina causes 'wheat leaf rust', a fungal disease that infects wheat. It is the most common wheat disease and ocurrs in most wheat growing regions. The fungus is an obligate parasite producing infectious urediniospores that can infect plants hundreds of kilometers away when carried by the wind.
