Irish potato famine disease came from South America

the genomic landscape that clarifies how selection and evolution work; and contributes to our general understanding of water moulds, or Oomycetes, a branch of life extremely different from animals, bacteria and fungi.

Ristaino is now pursuing studies on the evolution of related Phytophthora species in the Andes to determine how they compare to P. infestans. "Many Phytophthora species thrive in the tropics and it's possible they could be shipped here," Ristaino says. "More understanding can help us prevent their introduction in the United States."
