- Origin and domestication of the fungal wheat pathogen Mycosphaerella graminicola via sympatric speciationEva H Stukenbrock
Plant Pathology, Institute of Integrative Biology, Eidgenössische Techniche Hochschule, Zurich Land und Forst Wissenschaft, Zurich, Switzerland
Mol Biol Evol 24:398-411. 2007..At the present time, no genetic exchange occurs between pathogen populations on wheat and wild grasses although we found evidence that gene flow may have occurred since genetic differentiation of the populations...
- The origins of plant pathogens in agro-ecosystemsEva H Stukenbrock
Plant Pathology, Institute of Integrative Biology, ETH Zurich, CH 8092 Zurich, Switzerland
Annu Rev Phytopathol 46:75-100. 2008..We conclude that agro-ecosystems will continue to select for new pathogens unless they are re-engineered to make them less conducive to pathogen emergence...

Department of Microbiology, Institute of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Øster Farimagsgade 2D, DK 1353 Copenhagen K, Denmark
Fungal Genet Biol 42:73-80. 2005..mosseae had unique genotypes. The amplification of multiple co-dominant genetic markers from single spores by the nested multiplex PCR approach provides an important tool for future studies of AM fungi population genetics and evolution...
- Clonal diversity and population genetic structure of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (Glomus spp.) studied by multilocus genotyping of single sporesEva H Stukenbrock
Institute of Biology, Department of Microbiology, University of Copenhagen, Oester Farimagsgade 2D, DK 1353 Copenhagen K, Denmark
Mol Ecol 14:743-52. 2005..Analysis of gene diversity indicated that Glomus populations are subdivided between plots within each field. There were however, no subdivision between the fields...
- Distribution of dominant arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi among five plant species in undisturbed vegetation of a coastal grasslandEva H Stukenbrock
Department of Microbiology, Biological Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Mycorrhiza 15:497-503. 2005..The results showed that the dominant Glomus species were able to colonize all the studied plant species, supporting the view that the AM fungi represent a large underground interconnecting mycelial network...
- Global migration patterns in the fungal wheat pathogen Phaeosphaeria nodorumEva H Stukenbrock
Institute of Integrative Biology, Plant Pathology, ETH Zurich, LFW, Universitatstrasse 2, CH 8092 Zurich, Switzerland
Mol Ecol 15:2895-904. 2006..The migration patterns of the pathogen indicate that immigrants originated mainly from populations in Europe, China and North America...
- Evidence for extensive recent intron transposition in closely related fungiStefano F F Torriani
Institute of Integrative Biology, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH Zurich, 8092 Zurich, Switzerland
Curr Biol 21:2017-22. 2011..The large number of intron positions in transient phases of either intron gain or loss shows that intron evolution is much faster than previously thought and provides an excellent model to study molecular mechanisms of intron gain...

- Emergence of a new disease as a result of interspecific virulence gene transferTimothy L Friesen
US Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service USDA ARS, Cereal Crops Research Unit, Red River Valley Agricultural Research Center, Northern Crop Science Lab, Fargo, North Dakota 58105, USA
Nat Genet 38:953-6. 2006..This gene transfer probably occurred just before 1941, creating a pathogen population with significantly enhanced virulence and leading to the emergence of a new damaging disease of wheat...
