Understanding Plant Immune Systems Informs the Past and the Future

July 18, 2022

Plants have developed mechanisms that allow them to resist an onslaught of viruses, bacteria, fungi, and herbivores. However, their immune responses differ significantly from the circulatory system found in humans. 

PMB graduate student and researcher Chandler Sutherland delivered a comprehensive talk at a recent Wonderfest event, explaining plant immune systems and how researching plant immunology is helping us defend agricultural crops against disease. See the presentation in the video below.
