Comparative genomics‐informed design of two LAMP assays for detection of the kiwifruit pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. From potatoes to puppies, all living organisms have their own genome. Because all modern genomes have arisen from common ancestral genomes, the relationships between genomes can be studies with this fact in mind. Comparative genomics is convenient for doing these sorts of checks; it allows a researcher to see whether a sequence in a reference is present or absent in a second genome, as well as giving positional information (e.g., whether the sequence on either ‘side’ of the sequence of interest is preserved). 0.45%. ... improvements in the management of plant diseases are essential to prevent the introduction and spread of invasive plant pathogens.
