Plant roots consist of different cell types, which have different functions in root development. The function of cell types in root immunity was unknown until now. High-resolution sequencing studies at the Institute of Phytopathology could show, that each cell type has an immune response coupled to its development-specific function. In this way, developmental processes predetermine the immune response in each cell type, leading to a higher diversity and consequently effectiveness of the overall root immune response.

The iFZ
Securing biological resources using basic research into complex biological systems is the vision of the interdisciplinary Research Center for Biosystems, Land Use and Nutrition (iFZ) at the Justus Liebig University. The meeting of scientists from different disciplines encourages pioneering research at the frontiers of agricultural science, ecology, nutritional sciences and biotechnology at all relevant scales of our environment.
