[Trends in Microbiology] Microbiome-on-a-Chip: New Frontiers in Plant–Microbiota Research
An enigmatic concoction of interactions between microbes and hosts takes place below ground, yet the function(s) of the individual components in this complex playground are far from understood. This Forum article highlights how microfluidic – or ‘Microbiome-on-a-Chip’ – technology could help to shed light on such relationships, opening new frontiers in plant–microbiota research.
