    Abstract

    Mycosphaerella fijiensis, the causal agent of black leaf streak disease is the most devastating pathogen of banana and plantains. Detailed studies on the plant pathogen interaction as well as mating behavior could be improved by the use of non-destructive reporter gene assays http://www.path.ethz.ch/news/conferences/Mycosphaerella_Ascona_2007/program2
