Summarizing the 8th Japan-U.S. seminar on plant-pathogen interactions this book presents important foundational research on how pathogens trigger responses in plants. Delivery and Perception of Pathogen Signals in Plants features several papers containing original, significant research on the mechanisms of plant-pathogen interactions and a historical overview of the field of plant-microbe interactions.

Plant pathologists, microbiologists, agronomists and plant biologists interested in current information on plant-pathogen interactions.

The research presented in this book utilizes plants ranging from Arabidopsis to soybean and includes information on:

  • emerging research dealing with how fungal pathogens compromise host plants
  • mechanisms involving bacterial effector gene products that confer virulence or avirulence functions in plants
  • active plant defense signaling pathways occurring in response to recognition of pathogen elicitors
