About this book

Plants have evolved both general and highly specialized defence mechanisms that function to prevent diseases caused by the majority of microbial pathogens they encounter. There have been major developments in the field of plant microbe interactions in recent years due to newly developed techniques and the availability of new genomic information.

Molecular-Plant Microbe Interactions explores these new discoveries, focusing primarily on the mechanisms controlling plant disease resistance, the cross-talk among the pathways involved and the strategies used by fungi and viruses to suppress these defences.
