Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


This month we examine three pathogens that cause important economic losses in food animals (Ehrlichia ruminantium and Anaplasma marginale) or in plants (Xanthomonas oryzae pathovar oryzae). The unifying feature this month is that although these bacteria do not afflict humans directly, they nonetheless compromise our food supplies.
