Why Light Matters: Can we suppress plant pathogens by understanding their photobiology and ecology? 
Dr. David Gadoury, senior research associate in the Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology Section, Cornell University

Pathogens evolved amidst natural cycles of light and darkness. Artificial lighting is a relatively new phenomenon in our world, and especially in theirs. Pathogens sense, interpret, and use light to direct their development. In the case of UV radiation, pathogens have evolved defense mechanisms that are regulated by visible light. We seek to exploit these evolved relationships as a novel and effective means to suppress plant diseases and promote plant health.
