Elias-Roman, Ruben D.; Klopfenstein, Ned B.; Kim, Mee-Sook; Alvarado-Rosales, Dionicio; Hanna, John W.; Ross-Davis, Amy L.; Guzman-Plazola, Remigio Anastacio; Calderon-Zavala, Guillermo; Mora-Aguilera, Antonio. 2013. DNA-based identification of Armillaria isolates from peach [Prunus persica (l.) batsch] orchards in méxico state, Mexico. In: Browning, John; Palacios, Patsy, comps. Proceedings of the 60th Annual Western International Forest Disease Work Conference; October 8-12 October 2012; Tahoe City, CA. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Health Technology and Enterprise Team. p. 145-147.

A collaborative project between the Programa de Fitopatología, Colegio de Postgraduados, Texcoco, Edo. de México and the USDA Forest Service-RMRS, Moscow Forest Pathology Laboratory began in 2011 to identify which species of Armillaria are causing widespread and severe damage to the peach orchards from México State, México. We are employing a DNA-based approach in which the intergenic spacer 1 region (IGS1) of nuclear rDNA and the translation elongation factor-1 alpha gene will be sequenced and compared to known Armillaria species to facilitate species identification.
