Oomycetes are a group of fungal-like organisms that cause plant diseases through the use of effector proteins which manipulate and break down their host’s immune system. We have been sequencing genes from a recently discovered family of proteins called simply “Family 3” in species of Pythium native to a Pacific Northwest forest to better understand how they do this. Results suggest that these genes are actively evolving by both gene duplication and gene loss non-equally in different species.
