Interplay between selenium hyperaccumulator plants and their microbiome
The plant microbiome includes all microorganisms that occur on the plant root (rhizosphere) and shoot (phyllosphere) or inside plants (endosphere). Many of these microbes benefit their host by promoting growth, helping acquire nutrients or by alleviating biotic or abiotic stress. In addition to its intellectual merit, better knowledge of plant-microbiome interactions is important for agriculture and medicine. Microbiome studies are gaining popularity in multiple research areas, particularly due to advances in next generation sequencing, which has advantages over cultivable methods by revealing ...
