The Marie Sklodowska Curie – Projekt BestPass (Boosting Plant-Endophyte Stability, Compatibility and Performance across scales) had its midterm evaluation in September. From IGZ Prof Philipp Franken, Dr Rita Grosch, Dr Silke Ruppel, Dr Marina Korn and of course the Phd-students  Shubhangi Sharma and Vincenzo DeRocchis are involved. BestPass is coordinated by Prof David Collinge from Copenhagen University.

In the framework of this year´s 2nd Annual Meetings at Humboldt University in Berlin fa halfday public Colloquium with 4 invited Speakers took place, followed by a (successful) midterm Evaluation by the EU Project officer and an independent evaluator.

On day 3-5, a workshop was organized only for the PhD-students involved in this Project. They are from Germany, Greece, Italy, India, Austria, Portugal and Spain.  

It was an exciting and interesting Meeting. The next one will take place in Poland, in June 2018.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation
programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 676480

Auch dieses Jahr sind wir mit einem Stand bei der Langen Nacht der Wissenschaften in Berlin dabei.

Sie finden uns im Gebäude der Leibniz-Gemeinschaft im Herzen Berlins, Chausseestraße 111 (Mitte). Das IGZ präsentiert sich gemeinsam mit dem Forschungsverbund “Nachhaltige Lebensmittelproduktion und gesunde Ernährung” im Atrium.

Beginn: 17:00Uhr

Ende: Mitternacht

 

Das Pflanzliche Mikrobiom und seine Bedeutung für das Pflanzenwachstum

Pflanzen sind, wie alle anderen Lebewesen auch, durch Mikroorganismen (Bakterien, Pilze und Viren) in großer Vielfalt besiedelt. Dieses Mikrobiom der Pflanze bestimmt maßgeblich darüber, ob es der Pflanze gut geht und wie effektiv sie unter verschiedensten Umweltbedingungen wachsen kann.

Im Leibniz- Institut für Gemüse- und Zierpflanzenbau erforschen wir die Zusammensetzung des Mikrobioms und seine Funktion für die Ernährung und Gesunderhaltung der Pflanzen. Wir entdeckten eine bisher unbekannte Bakterienart, der wir den Namen „Kosakonia radicincitans“ gaben. Diese Bakterien fördern das Wachstum verschiedenster Pflanzenarten, erhöhen deren Erträge und verbessern sogar den Geschmack, zum Beispiel von Radieschen und Tomaten.

Wir geben hier einen Einblick in diese faszinierende Welt der mit bloßem Auge unsichtbaren, aber sehr aktiven und für unser aller Leben bedeutsamen Organismen.
