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…
