In New Zealand there has been a long association of Phytophthora diseases in forests, nurseries, remnant plantings and horticultural crops. However, new Phytophthora diseases of trees have recently emerged. Genome sequencing has been performed for 12 Phytophthora isolates, from six species: Phytophthora pluvialis, Phytophthora kernoviae, Phytophthora cinnamomi, Phytophthora agathidicida, Phytophthora multivora and Phytophthora taxon Totara. These sequences will enable comparative analyses to identify potential virulence strategies and ultimately facilitate better control strategies. This Whole Genome Shotgun data have been deposited in DDBJ/ENA/GenBank under the accession numbers LGTT00000000, LGTU00000000, JPWV00000000, JPWU00000000, LGSK00000000, LGSJ00000000, LGTR00000000, LGTS00000000, LGSM00000000, LGSL00000000, LGSO00000000, and LGSN00000000.
This work was funded by MBIE (CO4X1305), with co-funding from the Forest Growers Levy Trust (administered by the New Zealand Forest Owners Association) and the Radiata Pine Breeding Company under the “Healthy trees, Healthy future” research programme at Scion (NZFRI, Ltd). DJS was supported by the BBSRC (BB/L012499/1). Sequencing was performed by the Exeter Sequencing Service at the University of Exeter, which is supported by Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund (WT097835MF), Wellcome Trust Multi User Equipment Award (WT101650MA) and BBSRC LOLA award (BB/K003240/1). New Zealand isolates are maintained by the Forest Health Reference Laboratory Culture Collection at Scion (New Zealand).
