Phytophthora cinnamomi causes plant disease globally and resistance is rare. Using biochemical, molecular and transcriptomic approaches and analyses, phytohormones were found to regulate disease. The pathogen was also found to produce specific proteins that facilitated host colonisation. The study thus provided a detailed understanding of how some plants survive infection.
