Objectives
To create a preliminary multigene-based phylogeny of the genus Colletotrichum using nuclear and mitochondrial genomes, ribosomal DNA, [beta]-tubulin and TEF1 [alpha] genes; to determine the utility for phylogenetic inferences of single gene sequence data sets as compared to combined data sets at the generic level using colletotrichum species; to elucidate species concepts within the genus by linking molecular and morphological approaches.
