Plants have co-evolved with microbes ever since their first appearance on land, resulting in sophisticated strategies of pathogenicity, symbiosis, commensalisms and mutualism by microorganisms. This course presents an overview of the strategies by both plant hosts and microorganisms for their survival.  The lecture content includes the basic concepts of plant-microbe interactions and plant immunity as well as signal transduction in plant immunity.
