Worked on the fungus Colletotrichum coccodes, the causal agent of black dot disease on potato plant. • I worked with laboratory and greenhouse techniques including potato planting in green houses and field and scoring disease severity in potato fields. • Isolated, cultured, identified and maintained different fungal cultures using different methods. • Identified and counted germinated conidia of Alternaria solani on fungicides-supplemented media. • Prepared different media types for fungal pathogens, and single sporing of Colletotrichum coccodes and other fungi. • Conducted molecular work (DNA extraction, PCR-running, AFLP running and analysis by the traditional way and by using Li-COR, cloning, developing SCAR markers, designing primers), running different statistical softwares to analyze the binomial data such as PHYLIP, WINBOOT, POPGENE, MULTILOCUS, GENALEX, and STRUCTURE, BAPS, MEGA 5.1, AFLPsurv. • Able to identify different fungal pathogens on potato plants visually, by culture, and molecularly.
