Infection of Soybean Plant Roots with GFP-Expressing Phytophthora Sojae
26 Nov 2014
A clearer understanding of the host-pathogen interaction can lead to the development of increasingly disease-resistant soybean crops or less virulent Phytophthora species. Therefore, pathogenesis study of P. sojae soybean root infection is critical and can be aided by the power of fluorescence to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of infection. This application note demonstrates that coupling the iBox Explorer2 Microscope to the study of GFP-expressing P. sojae can greatly aid in the study of its pathogenesis.
