Damini Maithani and Anita Sharma
Eggplant, an important vegetable crop in India is prone to several fungal attacks which leads to severe crop loss. Present study was conducted to isolate, characterize and identify the fungi associated with diseased fruits of mature eggplant. Characterization of the recovered fungal isolates was done on the basis of morphological characters, microscopic studies and molecular techniques. Through sequencing of ITS region, recovered fungal isolates F1 and F2 revealed their homology with Diaporthe vexans and Alternaria alternata respectively. Sequences were submitted to NCBI database and assigned with accession numbers MW425839 for A. alternata and MW425838 for D. vexans.
