Since the publication of EPPO Standard PM 7/29 (2) Tilletia indica (OEPP/EPPO, 2007), it has been brought to our attention that the amplicon size given in Appendix 6 – Identification of Tilletia indica by conventional PCR is incorrect. The amplicon size should be 414 bp, not 163 bp.
In addition the Appendix 7 – Identification of Tilletia indica by real-time PCR, which also refers to the same original article appears, also to have incorrect details concerning amplicon size and missing information (no information on CT values is given). This is at present being checked by the authors of the diagnostic protocol. Readers should consult the original article (Frederick et al., 2000).
This diagnostic protocol is under review and these errors will be corrected in the revised version.
