Hi! Here's your News Capsule
for December 19, 2019
plant health 2020 workshops, field trips online
Combatting food loss, science communication, antibiotic resistance, global surveillance systems (GSSs), and the National Center for Genetic Resources Preservation are among the topics of workshops, field trips, and special sessions being offered at the next annual meeting. Learn more about what Plant Health 2020 will offer you in Denver, Colorado, from August 8 to 12!
Pathogens cause disease only on host plants, leaving nonhosts disease free. How does this powerful nonhost resistance work? Fatima and colleagues examine the difference in response to Alternaria brassicae by host and nonhost species, using a transcriptomic approach to uncover the induction of genes involved in an aggressive, preinvasion defense in nonhost chickpea.
Kerdraon et al. provide an overview of the impact of residues on cereal disease epidemics and how dynamic interactions between microbial communities of nonburied residues during their degradation, along with soil and a multitude of abiotic factors, can contribute to innovative disease management strategies, including next-generation, microbiome-based biocontrol strategies.
"Metabolome and Microbiome Signatures in the Roots of Citrus Affected by Huanglongbing," "Murraya paniculata and Swinglea glutinosa as Short-Term Transient Hosts of 'Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus' and Implications for the Spread of Huanglongbing," and "The In Planta Effective Concentration of Oxytetracycline Against 'Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus' for Suppression of Citrus Huanglongbing" address HLB from different angles.
The APS News Capsule is a benefit of your APS membership.
Thank you for your continued support!
APS Membership Matters

"My life experience is somewhat different from the experiences of many APS members. Although I grew up in the Fertile Crescent region, an original area of numerous food crops, I experienced tremendous plant disease outbreaks and hunger crises early in my life. I studied plant pathology not aiming for a job but rather for solving food production problems and improving food security throughout the world. After participating in teaching, research, and Extension programs in more than 30 countries and witnessing widespread crop losses and food shortages, I have always asked myself: What is expected from a person such as myself, with the ability, good fortune, and resources to help? I found part of my answer in supporting APS Foundation, because its mission is to help prepare professionals who will play an indispensable role in relieving the suffering of hunger and malnutrition for generations to come."
