Episode 5 – Microbes can switch sides in the plant-pathogen battle!

Episode 5

Listen to episode

This is a special, joint episode between The Plant Pathology Podcast and Bacteriofiles. We talk about how the same microbes that associate with plants can sometimes help prevent disease, and sometimes assist the pathogen. It depends on which microbe gets there first!

Show notes:
Order of arrival shifts endophyte–pathogen interactions in bean from resistance induction to disease facilitation

Endophytic Fusarium verticillioides reduces disease severity caused by Ustilago maydis on maize

Biological control of plant diseases – Here’s a good article if you’d like to read more about biocontrol

  1. Just found out about this cool podcast from bacteriofiles.

    I want to stay up to date with future episodes. Do you have a podcast RSS that could be used by a podcatcher?
