Talks about:

Functional genomics of plant-microbiome interactions

Plant root-associated microbial communities (the rhizosphere microbiome) influence plant growth and defense. Closely-related bacteria can have dramatically different effects on plant growth and range from pathogenic to mutualistic. Using Pseudomonas fluorescens and related species and the model plant Arabidopsis as a tractable rhizosphere microbiome model, we are using a combination of comparative genomics and high-throughput phenotyping to identify the genomic basis of lifestyle transitions between closely-related P. fluorescens strains. Our goals is to understand how microbial genome evolution affects host-associated lifestyles in plant-associated bacteria
