Guest Lecture, Dr. Aamir Raina, Aligarh Muslim University, India: Immunity in Plants in the Era of Quick Pathogen Evolution
News of Univ Airlangga Postgraduate School, 8 Aug 2022 – Apparently, it’s not only humans who need immunity for the body’s metabolism. Dr. Aamir Raina, plant expert from Aligarh Muslim University-India, had the opportunity to deliver a lecture in the 47th Guest Lecture of Postgraduate School.
“Immunity in Plants in The Era of Quick Pathogen Evolution,” plant diseases or phyto-pathogens affect plants from the planting stage to harvest. Therefore, plants must overcome the pathogenic mechanisms that produce the disease process to survive the harmful effects of such antagonistic interactions.
Adequate understanding of cell signaling mechanisms and the role of hormones in disease resistance will help in developing highly effective control measures against plant diseases, he said.
This defense or immune mechanism is called basal resistance, a term that refers to two distinct aspects of plant-pathogen interactions: constitutive and defensive.
It is such an eye opening for us that not only humans are prone to the quickly evolved pathogens, but also plants. And as a response to it, plants are also evolving their immunity to overcome the pathogens.
