Genetic Manipulation of Plant Pathogenic Fungi

  title={Genetic Manipulation of Plant Pathogenic Fungi},
  author={H Corby Kistler},
Fungi are the most common causal agents of plant disease. As such their potential for control of weed plants is great, and in many cases efficient biological weed control may depend upon the use of fungal pathogens. Strategies for developing more effective biological weed control will involve the genetic manipulation of these pathogens. The purpose of this chapter is to discuss potential strategies that may be followed to construct fungal pathogens improved in their ability to act as biological… CONTINUE READING
