New Horizons in Food Science via Agricultural Immunity

About this Research Topic

Agricultural immunology is a new research field that fuses animal, marine and plant immunology, all of which have been previously regarded as separate topics and fields. Recent progresses in immunological research, however, have demonstrated that the innate immune system against agricultural infection causing pathogens has common features in plants and animals. Agricultural Immunology therefore aims to plant the seeds for developing drug-independent safe food production systems by modulating these innate immune system. Animals and plants face constant risk of infection with biologically diverse pathogens that can cause serious diseases.

The current Research Topic intends to provide a focused, peer-oriented platform for researchers studying innate immune systems in livestock, poultry, fish, shellfish, and plants to discuss the major issues about innate immune systems of those organisms and its impact on food production. This Topic will help clarify the similarities and differences between the innate immune systems among these diverse organisms and provide novel insights into the basis of innate immunity to pathogens in agriculture.


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. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
