Nicotiana attenuata microbiome characterization and plant-bacterial interactions from single isolates to consortia / Rakesh Santhanam

Plants rely on soil microbes for beneficial interactions i.e., growth promotion, nutrient availability and disease suppression. Biotic and abiotic factors shaping the root microbiome are still largely unknown. Furthermore, why and how plants acquire soil microbes during germination and their ecological and functional roles remain elusive. Most of the high-throughput sequencing studies are limited to model or crop plants and lack the complementation of a culture-dependent approach to reveal functional traits of dominant and rare microbial communities. Until now, poly-microbial disease complex and poly-microbial biocontrol application received little attention in the scientific community. In this dissertation, my work aims to address these intriguing questions.
