Late blight is the most devastating disease in potato production around the world. It is caused by Phytophthora infestans which mutates rapidly. Renewed control strategies aimed at higher efficiency and lower environmental impact are urgently required. Research carried out for a decade in our laboratories demonstrated that we can prime potato plants to boost diverse defense functions against Phytophthora infestans. Priming could reduce the use of fungicides and pesticides and ensure the protection of human health and the environment. In this talk, I will present our knowledge about the molecular mechanisms of priming against P. infestans based on our studies using proteomics, metabolomics and gene expression profiling tools.
