Advances in the understanding of cellular processes at the molecular level have transformed the biological sciences. Plant pathology is a field which has benefited dramatically from the application of molecular techniques and has become one of the most exciting areas of biology today.Molecular Plant Pathology: A Practical Approach Volume I and its companion Volume II provide the first comprehensive guide to the latest molecular techniques as well as the established approaches to the subject. Detailed protocols are included which address a wide range of investigations from plantpathogen isolation and culture, through physiology and biochemistry, to techniques for localizing genes and their products within the cells of the infected plants. Researchers in plant science, molecular biology, and related areas will find the two volumes of Molecular Plant Pathology to be an invaluable experimental resource, providing a wealth of easy-to-follow protocols supported by expert advice and guidance.

Editorial Reviews

'this book brings together a vast array of up-to-date, relevant information of immense value to research workers in many areas of plant pathology ... I congratulate the editors on producing a book which I think will overcome our natural defence mechanisms against yet another molecular text.Most of us involved in plant pathology research will benefit from having a copy of this book on our shelf.'Peter Mills, Belfast, Society for General Microbiology Quarterly, November 1992
