Rhizosphere-microbiome associations with crop diversity and environmental conditions_

WP4. Leader: Dr. Tancredi Caruso (UCD).
Task Leaders: UCD, Univ. Silesia.

Partners involved: CSIC, Univ. Helsinki, Univ. Cukurova, CREA, Univ. Silesia, UCD

  1. Amplicon sequencing of rhizosphere bacterial and fungal communities.
  2. Transcriptomics of barley rhizosphere.
  3. Data integration and modeling.

RecoBar will explore the relationships of barley diversity with rhizosphere microbiome diversity, fungi (including Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi-AMF) and bacteria and will deepen the knowledge of barley-microbiota interactions under different environmental conditions. The crop diversity will be represented by six genotypes (micro-core) representative of the breeding history of barley (2 landraces, 2 heritage cultivars, 2 elite cultivars, selected in WP1 from the mini-core collection) growing under varying environmental conditions (in WP1 and WP2) that will be subjected to metagenomics and metatranscriptomics analyses.
