Central to this theme is the variety of interactions that take place between human, plant and microorganism. The consequence of these interactions can be both a favourable as unfavourable effect on one or more organisms. To understand these different interactions well, plant biology, human biology, microbiology and immunology are topics that are covered. Among others, infectious diseases and antibiotic resistance, the innate and acquired immune system and the plant response to internal and external signals are topics to be covered. The focus is on “discovery" of the Biodiscovery-chain.
