Transdisciplinarity contributes to understanding of interkingdom communication pathways

At a subcellular level, bacteria, fungi and plants communicate with each other, between species and even kingdoms, through biological and chemical packages they send in extracellular vesicle messengers. This paper from RIEEE Director Christine Ogilvie Hendren and collaborators at Duke University is an inaugural publication of a transdisciplinary team of biochemists, molecular cell biologists, colloid scientists and geochemists funded by the National Science Foundation to converge insights from how colloids and nanoparticles are transported in the environment with knowledge of cellular communication.
