Czech Academy of Sciences

In the nature, beneficial bacteria (in green) colonize plant roots and significantly stimulate their growth or resistance. In turn, plants provide them with a portion of their sugar production. The 3D picture from a confocal fluorescence microscope shows the upper part of a root and an empty seed coat of the thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana).
