Uncovering the molecular foundations behind the local and systemic immunity of Brassica napus, as well as its parent species, Brassica oleracea, and Brassica rapa.

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Pathogenic threats to global food security provoke concerns about decreased crop production which could have dire effects. Understanding the plant immune response is essential to develop sustainable defense against pathogenic risks. Our study investigates the regulation of salicylic acid (SA), a vital hormone in the plant immune response, in response to bacterial infection. Higher levels of SA in infected tissues than non-infected tissues suggest the activation of the plant's immune response.
