Genetic recombination refers to any process leading to the formation of a new individual that derives some of its genes from one parent and some from another, genetically different, parent. ” NOMENCLATURE OF BACTERIAL PATHOGENS The nomenclature of plant bacterial pathogens has been revised in recent years according to the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria (ICSB, 1992). A list of all valid names of plant-pathogenic bacteria from 1864 to 1995 was published by Young et al. (1996). More than 330 bacterial pathogens were listed.

Yeasts reproduce by fission or budding. During fission, the cell is split into daughter cells by constriction and formation of a cell wall. In the budding process, a small outgrowth (bud) is produced from a parent cell. The nucleus of the parent cell divides and one daughter nucleus migrates into the bud. The bud increases in size and ultimately breaks off, forming a new individual. Most Ascomycota reproduce by producing conidia. Conidia are produced at the tips or sides of hyphae. The specialized hypha, which bears conidia, is called a conidiophore.

Mitosporic fungi are an artificial assemblage of fungi that have not been correlated with any meiotic states. ASCOMYCOTA Structure of Ascomycota Ascomycota are either single-celled (yeasts), filamentous (hyphal), or both (dimorphic). Yeasts (order: Saccharomycetales) grow by budding or fission. Hyphae of other Ascomycota (Euascomycetes) grow apically and branch laterally. Yeasts are not important plant pathogens. Only Galactomyces, Geotrichum, Saccharomyces, and Zygosaccharomyces are known to cause some minor disorders in crop plants.
