The fungus „Zymoseptoria tritici“ is a specialized wheat pathogen and can be responsible for major crop shortfalls. The Max Planck Fellow Group “Environmental Genomics”, led by Eva Stukenbrock, found out that Z. tritici damages the immune system of the infected plant systemically beyond the the local infection and thus makes it susceptible for further infections.
