Decoding the Rhizobiota Interactome for Improved Crop Resilience (INTERACT)

INTERACT is a project under the Collaborative Crop Resiliency Program (CCRP), together with the projects MATRIX and InRoot, all funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. The INTERACT project will strive to unlock the enormous biotechnological potential of microbes, leading to sustainable crop productions systems.

INTERACT will address four Research Themes). The experimental Tasks within each Research Theme will contribute to answer the Research Questions raised in our application.

Research Theme 1: Indicator metabolites and microorganisms in relation to plant performance

Research Theme Lead: Amy Grunden (NCSU); Co-lead: Lars Stoumann Jensen (UCPH)

Research Theme 2: Isolation and metabolic profiling of rhizosphere microorganisms

Research Theme Lead: Carsten Suhr Jacobsen (AU); Co-leads: Mette Haubjerg Nicolaisen (UCPH), Oliver Baars (NCSU), Jens Frisvad (DTU)

Research Theme 3: Mechanistic understanding of signaling events driving microbiome assembly

Research Theme Lead: Mette H. Nicolaisen (AU); Co-leads: Ákos Kovács (DTU), Anne Winding (AU)

    Research Theme 4: Development of models predictive for plant resiliency

    Research Theme Lead: Bjarne Ersbøll (DTU); Co-leads: Lars Stoumann Jensen (UCPH), Ignazio Carbone (NCSU)
