About this Research Topic
This Research Topic aims to collect selected contributions to the 7th International Bacterial Wilt Symposium, held in Montevideo, Uruguay, on 29th March-3rd April, 2020 (conference has been postponed to November 3-7, 2020), to cover exciting new discoveries in the Ralstonia solanacearum-Plant Interactions.
We aim to collect manuscripts dealing with not only molecular mechanisms of Ralstonia solanacearum virulence and host responses but also development of the disease control system such as the disease-resistance cultivars and microbial inoculants. We hope that the studies collected in this Research Topic will shed light on a deeper understand of Ralstonia solanacearum-Plant Interactions and ultimately pave the way to deal with this devastating pathogen and developing sustainable control system on the disease.
Keywords: Ralstonia solanacearum, Bacterial Wilt, Virulence, Plant Resistance, Effectors
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements.
