Plant diseases can have an enormous impact on our lives. In a world where total crop failure can quickly lead to human misery and starvation, accurate diagnostics play a key role in keeping plants free from pathogens. In Plant Pathology: Techniques and Protocols, expert researchers provide methods which are vital to the diagnosis of plant diseases across the globe, addressing all three categories of plant pathology techniques: traditional, serological, and nucleic acid. Chapters examine recent and developing issues with crop identity and authenticity, allowing workers to genotype samples from two major food groups. Each chapter contains a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and reader-friendly, Plant Pathology: Techniques and Protocols is an incredible guide which will be indispensable, both to novices and expert researchers alike.

Features include:

  • Provides researchers with innovative methodologies for plant pathogen diagnostics
  • Written by experts from internationally renowned institutions
  • Cross-cutting approach to diagnostics, including molecular, serological, and traditional methodologies
  • All classes of plant pathogen covered in methodologies
  • Provides methods for crop plant genetic validation
