Researchers at Umeå University and Wageningen University have discovered how plants can defend themselves against aphids. They recorded aphid behavior on video, and identified a plant protein that keeps aphids from feeding. ...
Establishing a genome-wide map of bacterial genes crucial for colonization of plants by beneficial microbes
Working with the plant growth-promoting bacterium Pseudomonas simiae, researchers have identified 115 genes that negatively affect its ability to colonize a plant root system when mutated.
New research is set to change the textbook understanding of how plants breathe.
