Oomycetes are a class of organisms within which there are a range of devastating pathogens with a variety of different hosts including plants and animals. Phytophthora infestans, the causal agent of late blight in potato, is one of the most important plant pathogens in economical terms. Saprolegnia parasitica is a fish pathogenic oomycete capable of causing disease in freshwater fish species. This study uses both pathogens to work towards understanding the fundamental biology of oomycetes and the development of effective control strategies.
