Biases in the metabarcoding of plant pathogens using rust fungi as a model system
Plant pathogens such as rust fungi (Pucciniales) are of global economic and ecological importance. This means there is a critical need to reliably and cost‐effectively detect, identify, and monitor these fungi at large ...
Endophytic ability of the insecticidal bacterium Brevibacillus laterosporus in brassica
(Public Library of Science, 2019-05-22)
Brevibacillus laterosporus (Bl), is an insecticidal bacterium recorded as toxic to a range of invertebrates after ingestion. Isolates of Bl, which were initially recovered from surface-sterilised cabbage (Brassica oleracea ...
Transcriptional reprogramming of Arabidopsis thaliana defence pathways by the entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana correlates with resistance against a fungal pathogen but not against insects
(Frontiers Media, 2019-03-29)
The entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana can adopt an endophytic lifestyle by colonising a wide array of plant species. Beauveria-colonised plants can show enhanced resistance against insects and plant pathogens ...
Phylogenetic determinants of toxin gene distribution in genomes of Brevibacillus laterosporus
Brevibacillus laterosporus is a globally ubiquitous, spore forming bacterium, strains of which have shown toxic activity against invertebrates and microbes and several have been patented due to their commercial potential. ...
Virulence of the plant-associated endophytic fungus Lecanicillium muscarium to diamondback moth larvae
(New Zealand Plant Protection Society, 2019-07-28)
Plutella xylostella (diamondback moth) is a prominent pest of brassicas which is now resistant to most insecticides. Despite years of research, the range of available products used in biological control of diamondback moth ...
