Albugo laibachii

Albugo laibachii is a species of oomycete, whose genome has recently (2011) been sequenced.[1] It is a plant pathogen of Arabidopsis thaliana.[1] Albugo laibachii also causes the host plant to become more susceptible to other parasites, when it normally would be more resistant, wearing down the host plant's immune system.[2]
