About Plant-Pathogen Interactions
The interactions between the plant host and its pathogens (bacteria, fungi, viral, oomycetes and nematodes) are described as plant-pathogen interactions. Advanced genetic and statistical methods are followed for the development of disease resistant plants. Most studied plant pathogens of bacteria (Pseudomonas syringae, Xanthomonas campestris), fungi (Colletotrichum destructivum, Botrytis cinerea, Golovinomyces orontii), oomycete (Hyaloperonospora spp.), Viral (cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV), tomato mosaic virus (TMV)) and nematode (Meloidogyne incognita, Heterodera schachtii).
