About this book

This volume covers the latest developments in different areas of plant pathology. The chapters in this volume are organized into seven parts. Part One provides traditional methods for isolation and identification of invasive pathogens and root disease. Part Two looks at new and rapid DNA extraction protocols from different samples, and Part Three focuses on molecular detection protocols for identifying and quantifying plant pathogens, including fungal and bacterial invasive species. Part Four describes the application of metabarcoding in plant pathology, and Part Five talks about plant pathogen interactions. Part Six concentrates on population genomics of plant pathogens, and Part Seven covers biocontrol on plant pathogens. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and thorough, Plant Pathology: Methods and Protocols is a valuable resource for researchers in the plant pathology community, and discusses various approaches for the detection, identification, and control of plant diseases.
