Summer School Plant Microbe Interactions


The last 20 years have provided a sophisticated understanding of how plants recognise relatively conserved microbial patterns to activate defence. In recent years DNA sequencing allowed genomes and transcriptomes of eukaryotic rusts and mildew pathogens to be studied and imaging permit the study and visualisation of intracellular interactions during pathogenesis and defence.

We will present many aspects of plant microbe interactions including:

  • gene discovery
  • genome analysis
  • intra-cellular interactions with imaging technology
  • mechanistic understanding of cellular and molecular processes to translational activities

The focus on the dynamic and interactive practical sessions will naturally promote strong interactions between lecturers and participants.


  • Effectors
  • Effectors and Immunity
  • Resistance Proteins
  • Infection Processes
  • Proteomics
  • Wheat Genetics and Genomics in Plant Innate Immunity
  • Translations: Tipping the balance

Registration Process

We will accept a maximum of twenty participants onto this course. Participants can be at any career stage prior to those leading a group or from any sector and may be working or resident in any country. Participants will be selected by the instructors from applicants filling out this form. No strict criteria other than early career stage will be applied. Registration will be £800 and will cover course materials, accommodation (including breakfast), a weekend excursion and social events. Lunch and dinner are not covered but on-site facilities are cheap and easy to access. Registration will close at 0930 BST (UTC +1) Friday 3rd April 2020. Successful participants will be notified by email by 1700 BST Friday 17th April 2020.
