Pathobiomes and plant immunity

This international PhD course will provide you with the opportunity to understand emerging concepts in the field of plant-microbe interactions based on the study of pathogen-pathogen, pathogen-microbiome, and plant-microbiome interactions, with a particular focus on crops.
