The genome sequence and gene predictions of Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici PST-130 were not determined by the JGI, but were provided by Dario Cantu, UC Davis (dacantu@ucdavis.edu), the author of the published paper (Dario Cantu et al., 2011). Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the author and is therefore not automatically updated.

The Basidiomycete fungus Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici Eriks. (PST), an obligate plant pathogen, causes wheat yellow rust, also known as stripe rust. Wheat stripe rust is one of the most devastating diseases of wheat, that along with the stem (black) rust fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (PGT) threatens worldwide wheat production.
