A multi-layered immune system protects plants against pathogens. Adapted pathogens can overcome or evade this defence system by secreting small proteins, called effectors. Fleur Gawehns focuses on the questions how Fol effectors manipulate their host, which host targets are involved and what the outcome is of an effector-target interaction.
