Expand on Discussions Reported in New MPMI Journal White paper

Access and make comments through September 1, 2017

A new white paper published in Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions journal, titled “Foundational and Translational Research Opportunities to Improve Plant Health” offers a detailed accounting of deliberations at a recent workshop focused on the various biotic challenges to maintaining plant health.

This paper, which is open access through September 1, 2017, provides an outline and an accounting of the discussions between Dr. Richard W Michelmore at the University of California, Davis, MPMI Editor-in-Chief John M. McDowell, and nearly 40 other researchers at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. in late 2016.

Members are encouraged to view the white paper and extend this robust conversation about the many challenges and solutions for maintaining the quality and productivity of crops to secure food for the rapidly growing human population.

MPMI and the participants invite reader comments about this article through September 1, 2017. Visit apsjournals.apsnet.org/page/MPMI-01-17-0010-CR to become part of this important and timely discussion.
