Interactions of beneficial and detrimental root-colonizing filamentous microbes with plant hosts

Genome Biol. 2013 Jun 25;14(6):121. doi: 10.1186/gb-2013-14-6-121.

Abstract

Understanding commonalities and differences of how symbiotic and parasitic microbes interact with plants will improve advantageous interactions and allow pathogen control strategies in crops. Recently established systems enable studies of root pathogenic and symbiotic interactions in the same plant species.
