  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. We have discovered a previously unknown and abundant plant- mycorrhizal symbiosis with global distribution. Read more

Understanding the role of fungal effector proteins in antagonistic fungus–microbe interactions

Background. Fungi secrete a collection of proteins to their surrounding environments. In the case of plant-pathogenic fungi, many of these proteins are virulence factors, termed effectors, which function to promote host colonization through the modulation of plant physiology or immunity1. Read more
