Image shows a wheat root isolate of the commensal soil bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens inhibiting the spread of the pathogenic fungus Gaeumannomyces graminis var. tritici that causes a serious root disease known as ‘Take-all’. Scientists at the John Innes Centre on the Norwich Research Park are studying the intracellular signals and antimicrobials used by Pseudomonas species to inhibit the growth of soil-associated plant pathogens.
