Characterizing and engineering seed microbiomes to improve plant health

Seeds are central to food production and the maintenance of plant biodiversity. Still, seed microbiomes are understudied compared to other plant compartments. Here, I will present a meta-analysis on available seed microbiome studies (n=63) to synthesize the current knowledge on the composition and diversity of this habitat across 50 plant species. We also identified key knowledge gaps and emerging questions. 
Based on this meta-analysis, we identified clear diversity and composition patterns that can help guide the construction of synthetic communities (SynComs) and seed microbiome engineering. I will present different proof of concept SynCom studies that provide new insights on the transmission of microorganisms from seeds to seedlings and the impact of seed microbiota on plant health.
