Headline: Programme: DFG – Priority Programme “Deconstruction and Reconstruction of the Plant Microbiota: DECRyPT” (SPP 2125)

Freitag, 21. Juli 2017…”The central scientific objectives of this Priority Programme are to obtain a deep and more predictive understanding of plant-microbiota associations and to develop pioneering reductionist approaches towards a molecular understanding of plant microbiota functions. The programme will elucidate genetic factors underlying plant microbiota establishment, test presumed community adaptation in ecological contexts and define community-associated emergent properties. Computational and genomic tools will guide hypothesis-testing and the design of microbiota reconstitution experiments in controlled environments. […]
Research areas addressed in this Priority Programme:Community-level assembly of plant microbiota. Goals are:to identify keystone species and key processes involved in the assembly of plant microbiota,to test the contribution of plant-microbe and microbe-microbe interactions to community assembly and microbiota-influenced host traits,to identify mechanisms underlying plant-microbiota resilience to genetic, nutritional and/or environmental perturbations.Role of the plant immune system in shaping plant microbiota. Goals are:to test whether mechanistic principles for innate immunity or symbiosis in binary plant-microbe interactions also apply at the community level,to establish how variation in innate immunity recognition and signalling influences microbial community structure and function,to elucidate processes by which plants discriminate between pathogen and beneficial microbes in a community context.Ecological relevance of plant microbiota. Goals are:to survey the diversity and composition of plant microbiota in natural plant populations and ecologically contrasting habitats, or across a range of natural host ecotypes,to test assembly of plant microbiota under a broad range of environmental conditions in controlled experiments.Collective toolkit development. Goals are:to establish computational pipelines for meta-genomics, meta-transcriptomics, network construction and genome mining,to standardise protocols and procedures for controlled plant-microbe inoculation experiments.”…Einreichungsfrist: 11.10.2017
