Excited to have our much-improved 1000-genome 🌾 pathogen paper appear in @NatureComms today. This has been a mammoth effort by @AliceFeurtey! Made possible by 24 amazing co-authors sharing decades-worth of collected strains and genomes across the world.
Inspired by the amazing work by the Arabidopsis thaliana community including @PlantEvolution, @magnusnordborg, @joybergelson and many more: Our panel retraces the global spread of Zymoseptoria tritici, a major fungal pathogen of wheat from its origins in The Middle East.
