A total of 45 bacterial endophytes were isolated from apparently healthy tomato plant parts viz., root, stem and leaf tissues and evaluated against soilborne pathogens viz., Sclerotium rolfsii and Rhizoctonia solani by volatile method to test antifungal activity of volatile metabolites of the tomato bacterial endophytes. Among the 22 root endophytic isolates RBDNA-4, RBDLA-5 and RBDDE-14 showed the maximum inhibition against S. rolfsii to the tune of 89.63, 88.52 and 87.41 per cent…

Endophytic bacteria from tomato and their efficacy against Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. lycopersici, the wilt pathogen
Among the isolated endophytes, Pseudomonas was found to exhibit superior antagonistic activity against the test pathogen, and could be exploited for potential pharmaceutical, agricultural and industrial use.
Endophytic Fungi Isolated from Musa acuminata 'Dwarf Cavendish' and their Activity against Phytopathogenic Fungi
Endophytic fungi were isolated from Musa acuminata ‘Dwarf Cavendish’ harvested from 100-year-old crops and endophytic strains of Penicillium, Aspergillus, Fusarium and Chaetomium were found to be active against some of the targeted microorganisms.
Antimicrobial, antioxidant activity and phytochemical analysis of an endophytic species of Nigrospora isolated from living fossil Ginkgo biloba
The TLC-bioautography assay, used to screen the plant extracts for antimicrobial activity and localization of the active compounds indicated the presence of a number of inhibitory compounds with activity against tested microorganisms.
Efficacy of cultural methods in the control of rhizoctonia solani strains causing tomato damping off in Kenya
The various cultural disease control methods documented in this study can be used alone and in integration with other compatible Rhizoctonia damping off of tomato control strategies and may form part of the urgently sought for alternative to use of hazardous fumigants in agriculture.
The Diversity of Anti-Microbial Secondary Metabolites Produced by Fungal Endophytes: An Interdisciplinary Perspective
Diverse classes of secondary metabolites, focusing on anti-microbial compounds synthesized by fungal endophytes including terpenoids, alkaloids, phenylpropanoids, aliphatic compounds, polyketides, and peptides are reviewed from the interdisciplinary perspectives of biochemistry, genetics, fungal biology, host plant biology, human and plant pathology.

Nutritional Quality and Health Benefits of Vegetables: A Review
The nutritional quality and health benefits of the major groups of vegetables are discussed and more interdisciplinary work is required that involves nutritional and food scientists as well as others from biomedical fields to ascertain the thrue function of specific phytonutriceuticals.
