Background and aimsPlant breeding activities shape the rhizosphere microbiome but less is known about the relationship of both with the seed microbiome. We analyzed the composition of bacterial communities of seeds and rhizospheres of Styrian oil pumpkin genotypes in comparison to bulk soil to elucidate specific microbial signatures to support a concept involving plant-microbe interactions in breeding strategies.MethodsThe seed and rhizosphere microbiomes of 14 genotypes of oilseed pumpkin and… 
Microbiome-Assisted Breeding to Understand Cultivar-Dependent Assembly in Cucurbita pepo
TLDR
These findings provide a deep look into the rhizosphere and seed microbiome assembly of pumpkin-associated communities and represent the first steps into microbiome-driven breeding for plant-beneficial microbes.
The structure of the Brassica napus seed microbiome is cultivar-dependent and affects the interactions of symbionts and pathogens
TLDR
The structure of the seed microbiome is an important factor in the development of colonization resistance against pathogens and has a strong influence on the response of seedlings to biological seed treatments.
The treasure inside barley seeds: microbial diversity and plant beneficial bacteria
TLDR
Although barley accessions representing high genetic diversity displayed a genotype-dependent endophytic seed microbiome, a core seed microbiome with high relative abundances was identified and it is proposed that new breeding strategies should consider genotypes with high abundance of beneficial microbes.
Seeds of native alpine plants host unique microbial communities embedded in cross-kingdom networks
TLDR
Novel insights into the native seed microbiome contribute to a deeper understanding of seed microbial diversity and phytopathological processes for plant health, and beyond that for ecosystem plasticity and diversification within plant-specific microbiota.
Diversity of endophytic bacteria and fungi in seeds of Elymus nutans growing in four locations of Qinghai Tibet Plateau, China
TLDR
The Elymus nutans seed bacterial community was not impacted by the plant growth location, in contrast, the seed fungal community varied significantly in four locations, which indicates that the seeds of Elymusnutans host diverse endophytic bacteria and fungi.
Harnessing the microbiomes of Brassica vegetables for health issues
TLDR
The results shed first light on the microbiome of edible plants and open the door to harnessing the Brassica microbiome for plant disease resistance and human health.
Endophytic microbiome variation at the level of a single plant seed
TLDR
This study reports a protocol for extracting metagenomic DNA from an individual seed with minimal disruption of host tissue, and applies this protocol to quantify the 16S rRNA V4 and ITS2 amplicon composition and variability for individual seeds harvested from replicate common bean plants grown under standard, controlled conditions to maintain health.
Culturable Seed Microbiota of Populus trichocarpa
TLDR
These findings highlight common fungi and bacteria found in the seeds of P. trichocarpa, prompting further study of their functional consequences and confirms that P. syringae pv.
Understanding the Impact of Cultivar, Seed Origin, and Substrate on Bacterial Diversity of the Sugar Beet Rhizosphere and Suppression of Soil-Borne Pathogens
TLDR
Both, seeds and soil, provide specific beneficial bacteria for rhizosphere assembly and microbiota-mediated pathogen tolerance, which can be translated into microbiome management strategies for plant and ecosystem health.
Domestication of Oryza species eco-evolutionarily shapes bacterial and fungal communities in rice seed
TLDR
Evidence is shown that both host speciation and domestication shape seed bacterial and fungal community structures, whereas dramatic changes in environments during domestication contribute to assembly of microbiotas in deterministic ways in rice seed.

Emergence Shapes the Structure of the Seed Microbiota
TLDR
This work analyzed the structures of the seed microbiotas of different plants from the family Brassicaceae and their dynamics during germination and emergence through sequencing of three molecular markers: the ITS1 region of the fungal internal transcribed spacer, the V4 region of 16S rRNA gene, and a species-specific bacterial marker based on a fragment of gyrB.
Bacterial populations in juvenile maize rhizospheres originate from both seed and soil
TLDR
Maize rhizospheres receive diverse bacteria from soil, are influenced by the genotype or treatment of the seed, and are dominated by species of Proteobacteria, Actinob bacteria, Bacteroidetes, and Firmicutes.
Terroir is a key driver of seed-associated microbial assemblages.
TLDR
The results suggest that seed-associated microbial assemblage is determined by niche-based processes and that the terroir is a key driver of these selective forces.
Bacterial networks and co-occurrence relationships in the lettuce root microbiota.
TLDR
The approach to combine co-occurrence analysis and FISH-CLSM allows reliably reconstructing and interpreting microbial interaction networks and shows that single organisms are able to invade into this microbial network and to colonize lettuce plants.
The plant microbiome explored: implications for experimental botany.
TLDR
Analysis of plant microbiome data has brought about a paradigm shift in understanding of the diverse structure and functioning of the plant microbiome with respect to the high interplay of bacteria, archaea, fungi, and protists; the high specificity even at cultivar level; the vertical transmission of core microbiomes; the extraordinary function of endophytes; and several unexpected functions and metabolic interactions.
Root microbiome relates to plant host evolution in maize and other Poaceae.
TLDR
It is shown that the genetic distance between rhizobacterial communities correlated significantly with the phylogenetic distance (derived from chloroplastic sequences) between Poaceae genotypes, indicating that eukaryotic host's evolutionary history can be a significant factor shaping directly the assembly and composition of its associated bacterial compartment.
Exploring the maize rhizosphere microbiome in the field
TLDR
The results of this study revealed the heritability and significance of genotype-by-environment interactions on the maize rhizosphere microbiome at a single time point.
Bulk and Rhizosphere Soil Bacterial Communities Studied by Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis: Plant-Dependent Enrichment and Seasonal Shifts Revealed
TLDR
The DGGE fingerprints showed plant-dependent shifts in the relative abundance of bacterial populations in the rhizosphere which became more pronounced in the second year, and 6 out of 10 bands resembled gram-positive bacteria.
Deciphering the Rhizosphere Microbiome for Disease-Suppressive Bacteria
TLDR
It is indicated that upon attack by a fungal root pathogen, plants can exploit microbial consortia from soil for protection against infections.
Plant species and soil type cooperatively shape the structure and function of microbial communities in the rhizosphere.
TLDR
Physiological and molecular data on the factors that drive selection processes in the rhizosphere are presented and implications for agriculture, nature conservation and biotechnology will also be discussed.
