This pathogen causes serious losses in more than 200 crop species worldwide. Although there are fungicides for its control, many classes of fungicides have failed due to its genetic plasticity. It has become an important model for molecular study of necrotrophic fungi. The aim of the genome sequencing is to provide the community with the tools to analyse and dissect the genetic basis of pathogenicity.
