Genome-Enabled Analysis of Plant-Pathogen Interactions updates and documents the recent progress on genome-enabled technologies that have enhanced, and will continue to refine our understanding of how plants and microbes interact at the molecular level. It includes studies that show the power of integrating imaging with genetic and genomic tools to not only link genes to function, but also to understand the dynamic behaviors and interactions of plant and pathogen molecules. It emphasizes the contribution of computational biology to deciphering the genome and to revealing the complex signals and biochemical networks that are involved in plant-pathogen interactions, including intriguing advances reported for fungal, oomycete, and bacterial pathogens. It reports new approaches to identify host genes important in disease, and suggests novel strategies for generating crops with broad-spectrum and durable resistance to important pathogens. Twenty-five leading molecular scientists from Japan and USA contributed to this effort. These scientists participated in the 2010 Japan-US Seminar on Plant-Pathogen Interactions and the result of their collective research is now available in this limited-edition reference book.
