Abstract in scientific journal or proceedings
Mycosphaerella graminicola (Fuckel) J. Schröt is the causal agent of Septoria tritici leaf blotch, which is the major foliar wheat disease in most temperate areas. Its infection process includes: dimorphic switch from yeast-like form to filamentous growth, penetration of the germtube through stomata, colonization of mesophyll cells, transition from biotrophic phase to necrotrophic phase and finally production of fruiting bodies called pycnidia http://www.path.ethz.ch/news/conferences/Mycosphaerella_Ascona_2007/program2
