Abstract

Neocamarosporium betae (syn. Phoma betae, Pleospora betae) is the cause of Phoma leaf spot and root decay on Beta vulgaris worldwide. Despite the economic importance of the pathogen, many aspects of its life cycle and population biology remains unknown. The first genome assembly of N. betae was constructed to facilitate identification of mating-type loci and development of microsatellite markers for population genetics studies. The de novo assembled genome is provided as a resource for future genetic studies to understand the genetic mechanisms underlying disease development and host-pathogen interactions.
