    Authors:  Alexandre Perochon and Fiona M. Doohan, date: 12/20/2016, view: 9634, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Fusarium head blight (FHB) caused by Fusarium pathogens is a globally important cereal disease. To study Fusarium pathogenicity and host disease resistance, robust methods for disease assessment and quantification are needed. Here we describe the procedure of a detached leaves assay emphasizing the image analysis. The ...
    Visual Assessment of the Severity of Fusarium Seedling Blight (FSB) and Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Disease in Barley
    Authors:  Shahin S. Ali, Lokanadha R. Gunupuru and Fiona M. Doohan, date: 06/20/2015, view: 8865, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Fusarium pathogens are among the most damaging pathogens of cereals.
