Objectives of the Course
In this course will shown technological development in phytobacteriology, description of plant pathogenic bacteria, conventional diagnosis methods, nomenclatur, classification and taxonomic groups of bacterial pathogens, During experimental studies, initial identification of bacteria from different genus will be carried out, then identifications in species level of some of the important genus of plant pathogenic bacteria are also performed are also given during the lecture
