CABI Book Chapter

Trichoderma: biology and applications.

Book cover for Trichoderma: biology and applications.


This book provides an update on the advances in Trichoderma research, covering most of the aspects related to the biology, genetics, genomics and applications of Trichoderma species. An overview of the importance of Trichoderma spp. in agriculture, industry and medicine (chapter 1) is presented. The remaining articles are broadly classified under the headings taxonomy and physiology (chapters 2-7)...


Chapter 11 (Page no: 195)

Trichoderma genomes: a vast reservoir of potential elicitor proteins.

This chapter explores the potential of Trichoderma genomes as a vast reservoir of potential elicitor proteins. The chapter states that the pathogen effectors and the resistance-inducing effectors of Trichoderma may be similar, but evolved along different paths to reach their role in suppressing disease rather than promoting pathogen invasion. Thus, testing this hypothesis remains a daunting task because of the large numbers of predicted effector genes.
