Bacteriology

The Bacteriology Committee represents APS members interested in issues related to phytobacteriology, including plant pathogens and other bacterial associations with plants. The committee provides a forum for discussions on current issues, as well as promotes the discipline of phytobacteriology by sponsoring symposia, colloquia, discussions, and workshops at the annual meeting of the American Phytopathological Society. By forming ad hoc committees that actively address current issues in bacteriology, the committee provides a mechanism for addressing these issues as well as providing APS leadership, regulators, industry and others analyses based on scientific data. The APS Bacteriology Committee ensures the recognition of the critical role plant-associated bacteria play in agriculture and food safety, and the value of supporting phytobacteriology in research, education and extension in the United States and worldwide.
