Molecular Plant Pathology now publishes Opinion Pieces. These articles are intended to serve as a forum for discussion and debate, to engage in issues of the day, from the conceptual (e.g. are we asking the right questions?) to the technological, do we have the tools to address a particular question?)… and anything in between.
To date Molecular Plant Pathology Opinion Pieces have covered a wide range of topics including ash dieback, GM crop regulation, horizontal chromosome transfer, journal Impact Factors, the zig-zag model of plant-microbe interactions and the beneficial role of plant viruses. Links to the articles can be found below this text.
If you are interested in writing an Opinion Piece please contact the Editor-in-Chief Ralph Dean Ralph_dean@ncsu.edu enclosing a brief outline.
