WHAT DOES OOMYCETE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

oomycete

Oomycete

Oomycota or oomycetes form a distinct phylogenetic lineage of fungus-like eukaryotic microorganisms. They are filamentous, microscopic, absorptive organisms that reproduce both sexually and asexually. Oomycetes occupy both saprophytic and pathogenic lifestyles – and include some of the most notorious pathogens of plants, causing devastating diseases such as late blight of potato and sudden oak death. They are also often referred to as water molds, although the water-preferring nature which led to that name is not true of most species, which are terrestrial pathogens.

Definition of oomycete in the English dictionary

The definition of oomycete in the dictionary is any organism of the phylum Oomycota, formerly classified as fungi but now usually included in the kingdom Protoctista or Protista: includes the water moulds and downy mildews.
