From plant helper to insect killer – the elusive lifestyle of insect pathogenic fungi

During his PhD studies, Rasmus Emil Jensen researched insect pathogenic fungi living inside plants as endophytes. Endophytism is a term originally used to describe seemingly symptomless microorganisms living inside plants but today we know that endophytes play an important role in plant defense and growth. Rasmus Emil Jensen studied how endophytic…

PhD-defence: Advanced mass spectrometry explains how plant roots and micro-organisms interact

During his PhD studies, Kourosh Hooshmand worked with advanced mass spectrometry-based techniques to uncover the molecular mechanism underlying complex plant-beneficial microbes-pathogen tripartite interactions that confer indirect plant defence. Kourosh Hooshmand identified various metabolic markers associated with plant host defence…

Extended lactation: Which cows are suitable?

Intentional delay of the cow’s first insemination after calving results in an extended lactation. However, not all cows manage an extended lactation equally well. A new research project at Aarhus University examines the possibility of selecting suitable and unsuitable cows in advance.
