Plant pathology also called as phytopathology is the scientific study of plant diseases caused by pathogens, environmental conditions and some other physiological factors. The Journal of Plant Pathology & Microbiology an academic journal provides an opportunity to share the information among the medical scientists and reseachers.
The journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in peer review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. The review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Plant Pathology & Microbiology or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.
Plant pathology dealing with basic, fundamental and advanced methods and discoveries includes essential plant pathology
Plant Pathology is defined as the study of the organisms and environmental conditions that cause disease in plant.
Photosynthesis is a process used by plants and other organisms to convert light energy, normally from the Sun, into chemical energy that can be later released to fuel the organisms activities.
Plant Pathology and Microbiology is the journal dealing with the organisms and environmental conditions that cause disease in plants.
Molecular Plant Pathology describes how pathogens cause disease, including analysis of the molecular signaling between plant, pathogens and genes.
Plant diseases caused by fungi, bacteria, nematodes, viruses, parasitic flowering plants, abiotic factors of the environment including light, temperature, and atmospheric gases.
Transgenic plants are plants that have been genetically engineered, a breeding approach that uses recombinant DNA techniques to create plants with new characteristics.
Gene Silencing is switching off of the expression of a gene, for example by the introduction of an antisense RNA that blocks translation of the messenger RNA.
Terminator technology is the genetic modification of plants to make them produce sterile seeds. They are also known as suicide seeds.
Plant disease epidemiology has been defined as the study of factors that affect the spread of disease in time and space.
Plant defensins are small, highly stable, cysteine-rich peptides that constitute a part of the innate immune system primarily directed against fungal pathogens.
Plant pheromones are chemical used in Plants to attract bees and other pollinators to their flowers.
The majority of phytopathogenic fungi belong to the Ascomycetes and the Basidiomycetes. Biotrophic fungal pathogens colonize living plant tissue and obtain nutrients from living host cells.
Bacteria as plant pathogens can cause severe economically damaging diseases, ranging from spots, mosaic patterns or pustules on leaves and fruits, or smelly tuber rots to plant death.
Viruses are seldom lethal to plants, but do severely affect the host both in quantity, quality and longevity. Some of these would include abnormal leaf color, abnormal vein patterns of leaves, mottling in leaves.
Root Nematodes also known as Root knot Nematodes. These are plant-parasitic nematodes from the genus Meloidogyne. They exist in soil in areas with hot climates or short winters.
Nematodes are the most numerous multicellular animals on earth. A handful of soil will contain thousands of the microscopic worms, many of them parasites of insects, plants or animals.
OMICS International Organises 300+ Conferences Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 400+ Open access journals which contains over 30000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.
Journal of Plant Pathology & Microbiology is associated with our international conference "4th International Conference and Exhibition on Pathology" (Pathology-2015) during July 13-15, 2015 New Orleans, USA with a theme "Technological Construction of Pathology".
*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X.
