Back Cover Copy The volume presents valuable methods that look at important biological processes not traditionally assayed in the study of plant immunity, and at non-model systems. The chapters in this book cover topics such as identifying host targets of acetylating effectors by immunoprecipitation; quantifying ATP release from plant cells; protein-DNA interactions; DNA methylation; measurement and playback of leaf vibrations; natural infection routes of Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris using Arabidopsis; and isolating favorable plant-growth-promoting bacteria from the phytosphere. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting-edge and thorough, Plant Innate Immunity: Methods and Protocols is an essential resource for all researchers interested in expanding their knowledge and learning new techniques in this ever-growing field
