Congratulations to the Microbiome Team in the Dangl-Grant lab led by Omri Finkel, Isai Salas Gonzalez, Gabriel Castrillo and Jonathan Conway on the publication of a paper in Nature titled ‘A single bacterial genus maintains root growth in a complex microbiome.’ This paper is a detective story that led to the discovery that a single bacterial genus acts as a multispecies regulator of the the effects of plant microbiota on root development. Variovorax are very commonly enriched in roots of various plants and directly regulate the effects of the bacterially-produced plant growth regulator auxin.
