Microbiome-root-shoot axis: Hope in the soil
Speaker: Katerina Velchova
The microbiome is a collection of a range of different microbes such as bacteria, archaea, viruses, and fungi, that are naturally accumulated over a lifetime and live on and inside an organism, as well as in its surroundings. Such microbial collection has been shown to be important for organisms’ overall health and well-being. There are many types of microbiomes such as animal and human microbiomes, but there are also soil and plant microbiota. In this workshop, we will particularly focus on the plant microbiome and how it can be related to human health.
