Using pathogen genome-informed strategies to understand the molecular mechanism plant disease

A key feature of our Congresses is the opportunity given to early career researchers to present their work.

At the upcoming 7th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: EuropeEgem Ozbudak will be one of four early career researchers to be given a 15-minute platform to present their work and receive a free registration pass for both days of the conference.

He will be discussing his research project on Colletotrichum acutatum, the causative agent of anthracnose crown and fruit rot, recognized as the second most important pathogen of strawberries on the globe due to its economic impacts.

Can bacteriophages combat bacterial diseases of plants?

The bacterial nature of a plant disease was first proven in 1878–1880 by T. J. Burrill in the University of Illinois when studying fire blight. The number of known species of pathogenic bacteria is in constant change due to the clarification of phylogenetic relatedness upon receipt of new data, but as of 2014 the number of phytopathogenic bacteria genera that unite them was 39 1.
