Iron Homeostasis In Bacterial Plant Colonization And Disease

Background. Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via specific transport mechanisms. Read more

POSITIVE - evaluating Plant pOlyphenol effects on SoIl funcTional dIVErsity

Background. Crop breeding has changed the nutritional, mineral and non-nutritional composition of crop plants. Non-nutritionals include metabolites such as polyphenols and these have historically been considered as ‘anti-nutritionals’, reflecting their effect upon animal health when fed as major components in diets.

Can Soft Fruit Species Engage With Beneficial Microorganisms And Restrict Oomycete Pathogens

Background. The world needs a sustainable and secure supply of fresh and affordable food. Increased demand for berries is being driven by their popularity and consumer belief in their healthful properties. Read more

EASTBIO: Your Best Face Forward - how cereals regulate their epidermal surfaces

Plants living on land face brutal conditions with threats from pests, dehydration and temperature extremes. To survive and thrive on land, plants evolved a specialised surface, sealed by a waxy ‘cuticle’ and distinctive epidermal cells such as gas pores and defensive barbs. Read more

EASTBIO: Understanding how plant pathogen effector proteins contribute to host range and nonhost disease resistance

Crop diseases destroy more than 25 % of our food each year. Protecting crops with pesticides represents a considerable financial and environmental challenge. To develop new strategies to combat disease it is important to understand the molecular and cell biology of how microbial plant pathogens cause disease.  .
