Summarizing the 8th Japan-U.S. seminar on plant-pathogen interactions this book presents cutting-edge research on plant-microbe interactions. 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
