Phytopathogen emergence in the genomics era

Thynne, Elisha; McDonald, Megan C.; Solomon, Peter S.


Phytopathogens are a global threat to plant agriculture and biodiversity. The genomics era has lead to an exponential rise in comparative gene and genome studies of both economically significant and insignificant microorganisms. In this review we highlight some recent comparisons and discuss how they identify shared genes or genomic regions associated with host virulence. The two major mechanisms of rapid genome adaptation - horizontal gene transfer and hybridisation - are reviewed and we...[Show more]
