Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions (MPMI)

Purpose and Scope:

Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions (MPMI) is the groundbreaking journal for publication of original, refereed research on the molecular biology and molecular genetics of pathological, symbiotic, and associative interactions of microbes with plants, including plant response. In MPMI, microbe encompasses viruses, prokaryotes, and fungi, as well as nematodes and viroids. The term molecular biology includes studies on biochemical or biophysical mechanisms. Now in its 21st year, MPMI covers the fastest growing area of plant pathology research.

The online version of MPMI includes e-Xtra articles that provide supplemental tables and additional figures and photos as well as color versions of illustrations shown in black and white in the print journal.

received a National Gold Ink Award and a Neographics Franklin Award for Excellence in Graphic Design.

Intended Readership:

Agronomists, bacteriologists, biochemists, biologists, botanists, cell biologists, chemists, ecologists, entomologists, foresters, geneticists, horticulturists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, mycologists, nematologists, botanists, plant pathologists, plant physiologists, seed pathologists, soil scientists, virologists, and weed scientists.

Published by:

MPMI is published by The American Phytopathological Society (APS) and is cosponsored by the International Society for Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions (IS-MPMI). 

IS-MPMI is an international scientific organization devoted to molecular studies of microorganisms that interact with plants, plants responding to such organisms, and the consequences of the interactions. 

APS is an international scientific organization that promotes the study of plant diseases and their control through publications, meetings, symposia, workshops, and APSnet. APS advances modern concepts in plant health management in agricultural, urban and forest settings. The Society was founded in 1908 and has grown from 130 charter members to nearly 5,000 plant pathologists and scientists worldwide.
