Probiotic Consortia Applications In Non-Sterile Soil

Plants feed microbial communities that, in return, provide the plant with growth hormones and antibiotics. Alexandre Jousset’s research focuses on probiotics consortia in tomato plant roots that form a shield defending plant tissues from Ralstonia solanacearum (Wei et al., 2015). This is an aerobic non-spore forming plant pathogenic bacterium colonising the xylem and causing bacterial wilt in its host. It can affect most world crop species including tomato, potato, banana and tobacco and there’s still no cure for this disease (Hu et al., 2016).

Biofuels; The Energy Resource Of Our Future

Norman Lewis’ research currently focuses on the composition of phenylpropanoid metabolism pathway, which provides plants with neolignans and lignans. These are organic compounds giving structure and rigidity to the cell wall and allowing the normal growth and developments of plants. We interviewed him about his research.
