Fungi are important pathogens of human diseases, as well as to agricultural crop and trees. Molecular diagnostics can detect diseases early, and improve identification accuracy and follow-up disease management. The use of padlock probe is effective to facilitate these detections and pathogen identification quickly and accurately. In this chapter we describe three diagnostic assays that utilize padlock probes in combination with various technologies for the detection of pathogenic fungi.
