Pythium iwayamai (piw_scaffolds_v1)

Pythium iwayamai Assembly and Gene Annotation

Pythium iwayamai have been isolated mainly from monocotyledon plants. It grows well at lower temperatures and is pathogenic on monocot grasses under snow cover. Pythium iwayamai causes snow-rot disease of cereal plants, including wheat and barley.
