The Fu lab published a new study in Molecular Plant

Plants are constantly challenged by diverse pathogenic microbes in their environment and have thus evolved sophisticated strategies to coordinate their growth and defense. In their new study titled "The BZR1-EDS1 module regulates plant growth-defense coordination", the lab of Dr. Zhengqing Fu and collaborators describe a novel molecular module comprised of the transcription factor BZR1 and the immunity regulator EDS1 that regulates plant growth and defense in both compatible and incompatible infections. An impressive work!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
