  • OpenWheatBlast
    Wheat blast is a fearsome fungal disease of wheat. It was first discovered in Paraná State of Brazil in 1985. Wheat blast was also detected in Kentucky, USA, in 2011 and in February 2016 it was spotted in Bangladesh. Wheat blast is caused by a fungus known as Magnaporthe oryzae although scientists are still debating its exact identity. To rapidly respond to this emergency, the OpenWheatBlast team is making genetic data for the wheat blast pathogen available via their website and is inviting others to do the same.
