SNP development for P. gigantea; Method and resources. Primer note
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Phlebiopsis gigantea is an interesting species from many perspectives. It is common in many forests and can often be seen as an early colonizer on fresh wood after a clear cutting. After a forest fire it has been found to be abundant in newly burned forests, in some cases being the dominating species on the majority of logs and stumps (Olsson and Jonsson 2009; Eriksson et al. in prep.). In a study to test heat tolerance in species possibly favored by forest fire P. gigantea showed a remarkable resistance, allowing it not only to survive the forest fire but also to thrive in the microclimatic situation created by the event (Carlsson et al. in press). 

It is used by forest agencies as a bio controller against Root rot (Rotstop©) from Heterobasidium annosum in parts of boreal fennoscandia, applied at 47 000 ha annually. The practice is that a solution of fungal spores is sprayed on to stumps of already logged trees to prevent the spread of the protagonist fungi. Spores from only one strain of P. gigantea have been used for preparation until the year of 2005 (Rishbeth 1959, Tohr 2003). The spread of genetic material from one individual could have consequences on the population structure of the species as well as other species present in the ecosystem. Stenlid et al. 2009 investigated the population structure in strains from 11 populations spread across the boreal zone from Finland to North America, using microsatellite markers.  And found that, so far very little effect from the use of the fungicide was detectable outside of the plots where Rotstop© was applied (Stenlid et al 2009).

We aim to develop a set of snp markers for further use in a population study, looking at the effectors mentioned above. We will try to exclude the influence of fungicide usage to detect structures possibly created by forest fire.
