QAAFI Science Seminar – webinar: A Tale of Two Crop Diseases
June 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr Araz Solman
Research into plant-pathogen interactions has historically taken a simplified approach involving a single host and a single disease. However, in natural and agroecosystems, plants frequently interact with several pathogen species or genotypes, exhibiting complexities not captured by the widely used single disease approach. This presentation bridges the gap between the heterogeneity of plant diseases and the field of molecular biology. It uses a three-way system consisting of the wheat host and two major fungi. A range of techniques relating to plant pathology and histology as well as molecular biology and cytology were used. The main objective of this presentation is to showcase disease progress and pathogen interactions in wheat plants co-infected by two fungi.
