The Consortium

The consortium is composed of groups studying the roles and recognition of effectors in a wide range of pathosystems.

The consortium is composed of groups studying the roles and recognition of effectors in the following pathosystems:

The consortium creates critical mass, through comparative studies, shared platforms, resources, approaches, and ideas, to address key fundamental questions in plant pathology.


Key Questions

  • What are the principal targets of pathogen effectors that suppress innate immunity?
  • What are the roles of effector targets in activating or regulating innate immunity?
  • How do distantly-related plant pathogens establish biotrophic interactions with their hosts?
  • What are the molecular bases of host-range and host-specificity?
  • Can we find or synthesise resistance genes that provide durable disease resistance?

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
