Microbiome within Plants, the Rhizophagy cycle and metagenomic discovery strategies

As a result of revolutionary breakthroughs in recent years, plant research has evolved dramatically. At the 6th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: USA, the latest NGS, “omic” and gene editing technologies being used for progressing plant based research were examined. If you weren’t able to be there in person, these slides are now available from Sharon Doty, James White & Axel Visel.

Harnessing the Power of the Plant Microbiome to Increase Crop Health, Growth, and Yield
Sharon Doty’s presentation covers microbiome within plant, phytohormone production by endophytes and increase crop yields in field trials.

Rhizophagy Symbiosis in Cereals: Bacterial Transport of Nutrients to Roots/Oxidative Extraction of Nutrients from Bacteria in Roots
In this presentation, James White explains Rhizophagy – the cycle in which plants obtain nutrients from bacteria that alternate between a root intracellular endophytic phase and a free living soil phase.

Exploring and Harnessing the Functional Diversity of Microbial Dark Matter
Axel Visel discusses recent progress in the areas of genome-resolved metagenomics, function-driven single-cell genomics, and function-driven metagenomics and illustrate the opportunities arising from these approaches with examples of recent studies from the Joint Genome Institute and its user community.
