The plant root-soil microbe interface is a major frontier with potential opportunities for addressing crop agricultural challenges, especially under abiotic stress. This study will harness specific plant growth-promoting soil microbes and demonstrate their beneficial effects using the model plant, Arabidopsis
thaliana, under heat stress.
