In recent years, our understanding of the mechanisms involved in a plant's resistance to attack by disease, has seen major advances.
Molecular Aspects of Plant Disease Resistance includes contributions from many of the world's leading researchers in the area. Coverage includes the evolution of plant-virus interactions and plant resistance loci, the role of plant secondary metabolites, plant systemic resistance, oomycete genomics, intracellular immune receptors, transcriptional reprogramming, fungal biotrophy, chemical ecology of plant-insect interactions, bacterial Type III effectors and host perception of PAMPs.
