How do plant microbiota influence the immune system? A Microgreens interview with Jeff Dangl.

In the first full-length episode of the MPMI journal podcast, Microgreens host and biology professor Raka Mitra interviews Jeff Dangl, a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. 

When she started as a postdoc in the plant pathogenesis field, Mitra was overwhelmed by the amount of literature she needed to read. She found herself drawn to reviews and perspective articles written by Dr. Dangl and his lab. 

“I don’t think it’s overstatement to say that Jeff Dangl is a giant in the field of plant-microbe interactions,” says Mitra. “His group has made major strides in the study of plant pathogenesis, focusing mainly on the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana.” 

In this 13-minute episode, Mitra asks “What is one major unanswered question in the field of MPMI?” and “When did you first start thinking about microbiomes?”
