Updates on the XVI International Congress
Satellite Sessions: Congress organizers are seeking proposals for precongress satellite sessions, which will take place on Sunday, July 6, 2014. Sessions will fall into two categories. The first focuses on the promotion of funding vehicles for financing basic research through international organizations. The second category of sessions will address the utilization and contribution of molecular plant-microbe interactions research to solve major phytopathological problems in agriculture.
MPMI Editor’s Pick: Pathogenicity Genes in Colletotrichum gloeosporioides
High-throughput sequencing has enabled approaches that were previously inconceivable. In this issue, Alkan and colleagues obtain the genome sequence of the fungus Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and then use RNAseq to study the effect of the pacC regulator on gene expression. They find that a large number of genes are subject to pacC control, including secreted proteins likely to be involved in alkalization and necrotrophic growth, and that several of them contribute to virulence.
