Data from: Genomic analyses of dominant US clonal lineages of Phytophthora infestans reveals a shared ancestry for US11 and US18 and a lack of recently shared ancestry for all other US lineages

    The populations of the potato and tomato late blight pathogen, Phytophthora infestans, in the US are well known for emerging repeatedly as novel clonal lineages. These successions of dominant clones have historically been named US1 through US24, in order of appearance, since their first characterization using molecular markers. Hypothetically, these lineages can emerge by descent from prior lineages or as novel, independent lineages.

    Eastern Potato Variety Development Database, (NE1231)

      This is an interactive potato variety database that allows researchers and end-users to access and obtain potato variety trial results in one centralized site. It was developed primarily for scientists interested in potato variety development, growers, and allied industry members. The database is populated with the results of potato variety trials conducted in eight states (Florida, Maine, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia) and two Canadian provinces (Prince Edward Island and Quebec).
