I am working on this fungus for my PhD. I have never heard of it
naturally or artifically attacking Arabidopsis. I suggest getting a few
highly virulent cultures and try it. It may work, I don't know off the
top of my head how close Arabidopsis is to Crucifers.
Dr. Paul Williams, at Michigan State University has a large collection of
isolates, and if this host-pathogen interaction has ever been tried he
might know. Good luck Seanna sannis at uoguelph.ca
