The Top 10 oomycete pathogens in molecular plant pathology

Free to download

Sculptures on Customs House Quays in Dublin, by artist Rowan Gillespie

In recent years Molecular Plant Pathology has published several Top 10 reviews of plant pathogens. These have been based on both the scientific and economic importance of plant pathogens. The reviews have been well received and prompted much discussion within the scientific community.

We are delighted to publish the ‘The top 10 oomycetes in molecular plant pathology’. As with our previous reviews we asked the scientific community to rank oomycetes based on both their scientific and economic impact. The resulting top 10 oomycete taxa are described in detail in the review.
Recent molecular studies by the oomycete community have produced novel paradigms in our understanding of plant-microbe interactions. We hope this review will serve as a benchmark for future oomycete research.
The ‘Top 10 oomycetes in molecular plant pathology’ review is free to download. Also download this review article as a free A0 poster, an ideal resource for teaching and research purposes.
