Structure of wheat immune protein resolved

Important tool in the battle for food security

29-Sep-2022

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research and the University of Cologne in Germany together with colleagues from China have unravelled how wheat protects itself from a deadly pathogen. Their findings, published in the journal Nature, could be harnessed to make important ...

Molecules boosting plant immunity identified

Harnessing these insights may allow to design molecules that make plants more resistant to disease

12-Jul-2022

Two studies published in the journal Science by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne, Germany in collaboration with colleagues in China have discovered natural cellular molecules that drive critical plant immune responses. These compounds have all the ...

Self-restrained genes enable evolutionary novelty

22-Nov-2019

Changes in the genes that control development can potentially make large contributions to evolution by generating new morphologies in plants and animals. However, because developmental genes frequently influence many different processes, changes to their expression carry a risk of “collateral ...

Researchers block plant hormone

A small molecule inhibits jasmonic acid and helps to explain its effects

21-Aug-2014

Researchers trying to get new information about the metabolism of plants can switch off individual genes and study the resulting changes. However, Erich Kombrink from the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne and Markus Kaiser from the University of Duisburg-Essen adopt a ...

Immune system's errand boy

Signalling pathway links local and systemic plant immunity

18-Dec-2013

When plants discover a pathogen, they prepare for system-wide attack so they are ready to fight on all levels. Working with colleagues, Annegret Ross and Yusuke Saijo of the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne have discovered that this systemic defence can be triggered by ...

GATC Biotech is a partner in decoding the genome of the pathogen Colletotrichum

Detailed information about the transcriptome help to understand the disease mechanism of a fungal pathogen

16-Nov-2012

In collaboration with the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Plant Breeding Research in Cologne GATC Biotech AG has decoded the genome of the fungal pathogen Colletotrichum graminicola. The recently published results show that gene expression plays a decisive role in plant disease. With this ...

Bacterial community inside the plant root

Plants choose the soil bacteria that they allow into their roots

07-Aug-2012

Soil is the most species-rich microbial ecosystem in the world. From this incredible diversity, plants specifically choose certain species, give them access to the root and so host a unique, carefully selected bacterial community from which they then benefit in a variety of ways. To achieve this, ...

Mildew-resistant and infertile

29-Nov-2010

Mildew infections not only cause unsightly vegetable patches, they can also result in extensive crop failure. Interestingly, the processes involved in infections with this garden pest are similar to those involved in fertilisation. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding ...
