Role of Plant Volatiles as an Immune Signal in Response to Bacterial Infection

Semester: Fall 2023


Presentation description

Plant volatiles, organic compounds emitted by various plant tissues, play a crucial role in plant immunity by serving as chemical signals that allow for plant defense. Despite their significance, the regulatory mechanisms connecting plant volatiles to immunity remains largely unexplored. This research aims to investigate the effect of specific plant volatiles - such as linalool, 1,8-cineole, and terpineol - recognized for their antimicrobial properties in enhancing plant immunity.
