Research Topic “Population and Comparative Genomics of Plant Pathogenic Bacteria”

The chair of the EuroXanth COST Action, Ralf Koebnik, serves as a guest editor for the Research Topic “Population and Comparative Genomics of Plant Pathogenic Bacteria”. This publication will appear in the Frontiers journal Frontiers in Microbiology (IF 4.2 in 2019).

We highly recommend to submit your research papers, commentaries or reviews addressing various aspects of plant-pathogenic Xanthomonadaceae to this Open Access journal. Some of the potential topics include:

  • Population genomics of plant pathogenic bacteria;
  • Computational and functional genomics of bacterial genes affecting host and microbial community interactions;
  • Genomics study of antibiotic resistance and pathogenicity;
  • Molecular epidemiology and evolution.

Contributions resulting from work performed by the EuroXanth COST Action may qualify to financial support from the COST Action via a Publication Grant. Details on eligibility are outlined in the COST Vademecum. More COST documents for download: https://www.cost.eu/funding/how-to-get-funding/documents-and-guidelines/. Notably, authors from at least three participating COST countries need to be associated with the publication. 

Please consider this Research Topic for your next paper on Xanthomonas and/or Xylella!

The deadline for manuscript submission is October 29, 2021.

If you wish to obtain financial support (partial or full payment of the Open Access Article Processing Charge [APC]) from the EuroXanth COST Action, please contact the Chair of the EuroXanth COST Action. Support will be granted based on evaluation by the Core group of the EuroXanth COST Action. However, manuscripts need to be accepted for publication before August 31, 2021. 

With kind regards,
Ralf Koebnik
