Integrative Bioinformatics (Ruben Garrido-Oter)

In the Integrative Bioinformatics group we aim at developing and applying computational tools to understand the evolutionary and ecological principles that govern the structure and dynamics of complex microbial communities, in particular those associated with plant roots and leaves. [more]
In the Multitrophic Plant-Microbe Interactions group, we aim at understanding the fundamental mechanisms that underlie the structure and the functions of multi-kingdom microbial consortia colonizing plant roots.

Remarkably little is understood about plant-microbe interactions that are, at first glance, ‘symptomless’. These poorly studied plant microbiomes harbor an unknown reservoir of probiotic and plant protective associations.

Innate Immunity and the Plant Microbiota (Paul Schulze-Lefert)

Remarkably little is understood about plant-microbe interactions that are, at first glance, ‘symptomless’. These poorly studied plant microbiomes harbor an unknown reservoir of probiotic and plant protective associations. [more]
The plant innate immune system consists of two interconnected branches termed MTI (<span style="text-decoration: underline;">M</span>AMP-<span style="text-decoration: underline;">T</span>riggered <span style="text-decoration: underline;">I</span>mmunity) and ETI (<span style="text-decoration: underline;">E</span>ffector-<span style="text-decoration: underline;">T</span>riggered <span style="text-decoration: underline;">I</span>mmunity) that initiate massive transcriptional reprogramming.

Transcriptional Regulation of Plant Immune Response (Imre Somssich)

The plant innate immune system consists of two interconnected branches termed MTI (MAMP-Triggered Immunity) and ETI (Effector-Triggered Immunity) that initiate massive transcriptional reprogramming. [more]
Plants sense molecules originating from pathogens and turn on a battery of immune responses. PAMP/pattern-triggered immunity (PTI) and effector-triggered immunity (ETI) are well-defined modes of plant immunity against pathogens.

Plant Immune Network Structure and Dynamics (Kenichi Tsuda)

Plants sense molecules originating from pathogens and turn on a battery of immune responses. PAMP/pattern-triggered immunity (PTI) and effector-triggered immunity (ETI) are well-defined modes of plant immunity against pathogens. [more]
