Mira - Microbe induced Resistance to Agricultural pests – University of Copenhagen

Microbe-induced Resistance to Agricultural Pests

MiRA EU-ITN will train 15 early-stage researchers in basic and applied research on context-dependency of microbe-induced resistance, mechanisms, and impacts on plant performance and other biocontrol organisms.
We will use this understanding to improve our ability to predict the effectiveness of microbe-induced resistance under different conditions, to select plant and microbial strains with improved context-stability, and to develop better methods for the formulation of microbial inoculants and their application in agriculture.
