Abstract

The molecular dialog between fungal pathogens and their plant hosts is governed by signals from the plant, secreted pathogen effectors and enzymes, and the plant immune system. There is an increasing awareness that nutritional factors are also central to fungal-plant interactions. Nutritional factors include carbon and nitrogen metabolism, local pH and redox state, and manipulation of host metabolism by secreted pathogen effectors. A diverse combination of approaches from genetics, biochemistry and fungal and plant cell biology addresses these questions, and a workshop whose abstracts accompany this note was held in 2018 to bring these together. Questions were asked about how the lifestyles and nutritional strategies of eukaryotic filamentous phytopathogens are related to the metabolic architectures and pathogenic processes affecting both plant hosts and their pathogens. The aim for future work will be to provide metabolism-based strategies for pathogen control.
