Abstract

For successful colonization, parasites need to target the plant immune system. This Primer explores a new study in PLOS Biology which reveal that unrelated parasites have evolved effectors which specifically suppress the function of helper NLRs, explaining the complex plant-parasite coevolutionary dynamics.
