Description

This book provides key methods, approaches, and strategies to dissect the plant defense response. Addressing methods to identify and characterize plant resistance genes as well as pathogen-associated molecules that trigger the plant defense response, this volume creates a better understanding of the interactions between pathogens and their hosts. This will help to develop better methods for disease control in plants and animals.

Review Text

From the reviews:

"In a highly lucid manner, this book describes new developments in generic techniques and others which are exclusive to plant pathologists. As a result this book will be of interest to seasoned practioners in the field as much as new post-graduate students. ... The presentation of each section is exemplary, with a useful summary, a concise introduction to each section and a step-by-step protocol. ... this is a wide-ranging protocols book that will be useful to plant pathologists at all stages in their careers." (Dr Luis Mur, Molecular Biotechnology, 2007)

"The book is divided into 18 chapters ... . this book is an excellent reference for people interested in validating or improving existing lab protocols. ... serve as a basic reference work for those entering into a new research area. ... Texts are clearly written and the tabular format makes it easier to adopt novel methods step-by-step. This makes the book also a valuable tool for people involved in teaching. All in all, I can recommend this book as a good value for the money." (Ulrich Schaffrath, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 165, 2008)

"In this volume, the editor has assembled a versatile collection of papers that focus on large-scale analyses of plant-pathogen interactions. ... With contributions from over 40 experts in their fields, this stepwise set of protocols ... will certainly be of interest to molecular plant-pathogen researchers." (Tzvi Tzfira, Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 82, 2007)
