Applied Plant Virology: Advances, Detection, and Antiviral Strategies provides an overview of recent developments and applications in the field of plant virology. The book begins with an introduction to important advances in plant virology. It goes on to cover topics such as: techniques for assay detection and the diagnosis of plant viruses; the purification, isolation and characterization of plant viruses; the architecture of plant viruses; the replication of plant viruses; the physiology of virus-infected hosts; vectors of plant viruses; and the nomenclature and classification of plants. The book also discusses defense strategies by utilizing antiviral agents and management strategies of virus and viroid diseases. With contributions from an international collection of experts , Applied Plant Virology is a practical resource for plant virologists, plant pathologists, horticulturalists, agronomists, biotechnologists, academics, and researchers interested in up-to-date technologies and information that advance the field of plant virology.
  • Covers the detection, control and management of plant viruses
  • Discusses antiviral strategies, along with mechanisms of systemic induced resistance to enhance the defense of plants against viruses
  • Provides contributory chapters from expert plant virologists from different parts of the world
