Tackling the re-emergence of wheat stem rust in Western Europe

In our recent Communications Biology article, we reported the first occurrence of wheat stem rust in the UK in nearly six decades. An increased incidence of wheat stem rust in Western Europe, caused by the fungus Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici, could signify the return of this formidable foe. As pathologists fight back against this devastating disease we outline the continuing research and strategies being employed to bridle its onslaught.
