Microbiome within Plants, the Rhizophagy cycle and metagenomic discovery strategies
Posted 12th December 2018 by Jane Williams
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.
|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.
