Endophytic fungi are organisms that spend most of their life cycle within plant tissues without causing any visible damage to the host plant. Many endophytes were found to secrete specialized metabolites and/or emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which may be biologically active and assist fungal survival inside the plant as well as benefit their hosts.(More)
Plant-parasitic nematodes form one of the largest sources of biotic stress imposed on plants, and are very difficult to control; among them are the obligate parasites, the sedentary root-knot nematodes (RKNs)-Meloidogyne spp.-which are extremely polyphagous and exploit a very wide range of hosts. Endophytic fungi are organisms that spend most of their life(More)
Mal secco disease, caused by the pathogenic fungus Phoma tracheiphila, is a devastating disease of susceptible citrus species, especially lemon. To study the molecular interactions between the pathogen and its host, a method for identifying the genes involved in pathogenicity is needed. This work describes the transformation of P. tracheiphila phialoconidia(More)
