    Abstract

    A gene-for-gene model is presented which explains interactions between cultivars of strawberry and races of Phytophthora fragariae var. fragariae, the causal agent of red core (red stele) root rot. The model allows the constitution of a universal differential set of strawberry genotypes and the characterizing of fungal isolates into races, the genotyping of strawberry cultivars and selections in a breeding programme, and facilitates the search for linked molecular markers for more efficient selection for resistance.
