The growing significance of molecular plant biology is exemplified by the abundance of research in the field. Plant-Microbe Interactions, Volume 5 continues the effort to the chronicle the recent events in this cutting-edge science.
Use the research in this book to understand how plant-microbe interactions impact agriculture and plant biology.
Coverage of microbial plant pathogens and symbionts and the responses they elicit on their plant hosts is explored through topics such as:
- using molecular methods to understand recent advances in Phytophthora infestans.
- recognizing diffusible signal molecules that allow bacteria to respond to their environmental conditions.
- the application of the power of Arabidopsis genetics to understanding resistance gene function in plants, and how the use of functional genomics approaches may revolutionize the understanding of plant resistance in the next few years.
- the regulation and function of pectic enzymes in the pathogen Erwinia chyrsanthmi.
- understanding current information about plant protein receptors that may be involved in pathogen recognition.
- recent advances in the isolation and culturing of the endophyte of sugarcane, Acetobacter diazotrophicus, that has been reported to fix agriculturally significant levels of nitrogen in sugarcane.
