Population genomics of bacterial plant pathogens
Phytopathology 111 (1), 23-31
Abstract: Population genomics is transforming our understanding of pathogen biology and evolution, and contributing to the prevention and management of disease in diverse crops. We provide an overview of key methods in bacterial population genomics and describe recent work focusing on three topics of critical importance to plant pathology: (i) resolving pathogen origins and transmission pathways during outbreak events, (ii) identifying the genetic basis of host specificity and virulence, and (iii) understanding how pathogens evolve in response to changing agricultural practices.
