E-MTAB-1793 - Transcription profiling by array of vdh1 mutant and wild type samples of soilborne fungus Verticillium dahliae
Released on 6 September 2013, last updated on 3 June 2014
The soilborne fungus, Verticillium dahliae, causes Verticillium wilt disease in plants. Verticillium wilt is difficult to control since V. dahliae is capable of persisting in the soil for 10 to15 years as melanized microsclerotia, rendering crop rotation strategies for disease control ineffective. Microsclerotia of V. dahliae overwinter and germinate to produce infectious hyphae that give rise to primary infections. Consequentially, microsclerotia formation, maintenance, and germination are critically important processes in the disease cycle of V. dahliae.
