Host-pathogen interactions are an ever emerging and evolving field in the discipline of plant pathology. Understanding the mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions is an important area for sustainable and effective disease management. The aim of this book is to enlighten students and researchers of plant pathology and biotechnology in the fast emerging area of host pathogen interation. This books blends with conceptual as well and modern techniques used in understanding the host-pathogen interaction at molecular level.

Plant-pathogen interaction is a multifaceted process, mediated by the pathogen- and plant-derived molecules. These processes are highly complex in nature. We took upmost care to provide the insight of complex processes of host pathogen interactions in modest language.

This book is written based on the new syllabous of ICAR, New Delhi for post graduate students (Plant pathology). This book will be quite usefulf for students appearing for ICAR-JRF, CSIR-JRF/NET/DBT-JRF and other competitive examination.
