Synopsis

Plants have evolved both general and highly specialized defence mechanisms that function to prevent diseases caused by the majority of microbial pathogens they encounter. Highly specialized defence is governed by specific interactions between pathogen avr (avirulence) genes' loci and alleles of the corresponding plant disease resistance (R) loci. These defences can be very dynamic as microbes from the same species can act differently in their co-evolution with the specific host plant, which in turn has similarly evolved its response to external threats. There have been major developments in the field of plant-microbe interactions in recent years, due to newly developed techniques and the availability of genomic information. Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions explores these new discoveries, focusing primarily on the mechanisms controlling plant disease resistance, the cross-talk among the pathways involved and the strategies used by the pathogens to suppress these defences. By exploring developments in plant defences, pathogen's counter-defences and mutually beneficial plant-microbe interactions, this book will be useful for researchers and students in plant pathology and plant biology-related areas.

Dr. Kamal Bouarab is at the Department of Biology, University of Sherbrooke, where he teaches phytopathology and plant molecular biology. His research program focuses on the molecular mechanisms controlling plant innate immunity and strategies used by pathogens to overcome this immunity and cause diseases. Dr. Normand Brisson is at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Montreal, where he teaches molecular genetics. For the last 25 years he has maintained an active research program on the molecular mechanisms that control plant gene expression in response to infection by pathogens. His work has led to a better understanding on how gene activators and repressors contribute to the fine regulation of plant defense genes. Dr. Fouad Daayf is Associate Head at the Department of Plant Science, University of Manitoba, where he teaches fundamentals of horticulture and molecular plant-microbe interactions. His research program focuses on biochemical and molecular mechanisms of plant-microbe interactions, with an emphasis on plant defense reactions and the mechanisms of their suppression by pathogens, mechanisms of biological control of plant diseases, and the role of secondary metabolites in defense and defense signaling."
