Call for Papers! Publish in the MPMI Focus Issue on Effectors at the Interface of Plant–Microbe Interactions

Effectors are central to determining the complex and dynamic interaction between plants and microbes. Whether those interactions re​​​​sult in the establishment of a beneficial or negative interaction, effectors are at the interface of any plant–microbe interaction.

Despite their role as mediators of plant–microbe interactions, gaining a full understanding of the biology and evolution of these intriguing molecules has been a challenging task. This MPMI Focus Issue will present the latest developments in the study of microbial effector biology and evolution in the context of plant immunity across diverse systems. As the scientific community seeks to respond to global challenges in agriculture and food production, we wish to highlight potential solutions and technologies emerging from research in microbial effectors.

We invite research and review articles that explore the complex role of effectors in molecular plant–microbe interactions. Articles highlighting translational research, as well as fundamental understanding, are welcome. We look forward to assembling an issue that features the excellent research in this area!

Benefits to Authors

A Focus Issue offers authors several benefits. A single-topic issue gives scientists an opportunity to publish alongside the related work of their peers to highlight progress in a focal area. The Effectors at the Interface of Plant–Microbe Interactions MPMI Focus Issue will be widely promoted and is expected to be highly cited, giving authors maximum exposure.

Articles will be submitted to Crossref, allowing citation tracking and connectivity as this research area moves forward in MPMI and other scientific journals.

If you are working on research described herein, submit your manuscript to MPMI and select "Focus Issue" as the article type. Please also indicate in your cover letter that you would like your manuscript to be considered for the 2024 Focus Issue.

For more information about the scope of this issue, please contact MPMI Editor-in-Chief Tim Friesen.​
