Comparison of the sequence of the Avr2 gene from the fungal isolate in my plant #3 to known sequences of Avr2 found in Races 2 & 3. The sequence of my fungal isolate is a perfect match to the known Race 2 Avr2 sequence. There are three differences (highlighted in green) between my isolate and known Race 3 isolates. We can conclude that plant #3 was infected by Fusarium Race 2.
