Cacao Pathogenomics

About cacaopathogenomics.com

The University of California Davis, USDA ARS, and Mars, Incorporated have teamed up to develop genomic resources for the major fungal and oomycete pathogens of cacao.
This repository provides public access to genome references, resequencing and gene expression data. These resources are being used by Mars, Incorporated and collaborators to study the evolution, geographical diversity, host-specificity and biology of the causal agents of cacao black pod (Phytophthora megakarya, P. palmivora), witches' broom (Moniliophthora perniciosa), and frosty pod (Moniliophthora roreri).


Project leaders: Dario Cantu (UC Davis), Bryan Bailey (USDA/ARS), Jean-Philippe Marelli (Mars Wrigley Plant Sciences Laboratory).
