Summarizing the 9th Japan-U.S. seminar on plant-pathogen interactions this book presents cutting-edge research on the application of genomics to the investigation of plant-microbe interactions. Genomic and Genetic Analysis of Plant Parasitism and Defense features papers containing original research on the use of genomics and genome-associated technologies in a variety of pathosystems to explore topics such as mechanisms of pathogen compatibility and incompatibility, host-pathogen signaling and mechanisms of plant disease resistance. Focus is placed on genome-wide analyses and the use of large-scale, high throughput genomic tools in combination with classic genetic tools and resources to decipher the molecular basis of plant–microbe interactions.

The wide range of pathogens covered as well as examples of exciting new technologies are sure to be of interest to plant pathologists, microbiologists, agronomists, plant biologists, or anyone interested in plant-microbe interactions.
