The art and design of harmony - molecular genetics of the arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis in cereals
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jill Harrison.
The mutually beneficial arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) symbiosis is the most widespread plant-fungal interaction between roots of terrestrial plants and fungi of the Glomeromycota. The association receives increasing scientific attention because of the nutritional benefit it confers to host plants, its ubiquitous occurrence among contemporary plant species and, as a result of its evolutionary antiquity, an ancestral relationship to other plant interactions.
Over the past decade a number of plant encoded AM-factors were isolated from dicotyledons that have provided a first glimpse into the nature and complexity of the molecular dialogue underpinning this apparently harmonious symbiosis. The research of my laboratory focuses on the identification and characterization of molecular mechanisms central to development and/or functioning of AM symbioses in cereals. During my presentation I will provide an overview over the activities of my group and what we have on our agenda at the University of Cambridge.
