Phytophthora infestans (strain T30-4) is the causal agent of late potato blight disease and also infects tomatoes and other members of the Solanaceae. It has caused several major crop losses throughout history including the Great Famine in Ireland between 1845 and 1852, a period of mass starvation, disease and emigration, and continues to affect world agriculture today.

The genome, at 240 Mb, is larger and more complex than those of other Phytophthora species whose genomes have been sequenced. Its expansion results from a proliferation of repetitive DNA, accounting for about 74% of the genome. The genome also displays an unusual gene distribution with some areas containing many genes and others areas containing very few.
