The Merlot Microbiome














Plants associated bacteria play a key role in host productivity and health. These bacteria are phylogenetically diverse and form interactions considered neutral, beneficial or detrimental. A better understanding of these interactions will have a direct impact in agriculture by promoting sustainable practices. Researchers are currently hard at work studying the bacteria associated with one agriculturally important plant: Grapevines that produce the varietal Merlot. Participants will discuss their current findings.
