The Plant Microbiome at Work

Unravelling the net result of microbial activities encoded in the extended plant genome-the plant microbiome-will be key to understanding and exploiting the full yield potential of a crop plant. In this perspective, the authors summarize first achievements of plant-microbiome research, they discuss future research directions, and they provide ideas for the translation of basic science to application to capitalize on the plant microbiome at work.
