Relp Analysis of the PCR-Amplified 28S Ribosomal DNA for Revision of Genetic Relationships in Rhizotonia Spp

Phytopathogenic fungi classified as Rhizoctonia spp. represent an admixture of taxonomically separate groups that vary in many significant characteristics, including their sexual stages (teleomorph), asexual stages (anamorph), and other characters (Tu and Kimbrough, 1978; Sneh et al., 1991; Vilgalys and Cubeta, 1994). Understanding the genetic relationships is likely to aid in redefining the systematics of fungi described under the genus Rhizoctonia.
