CDC seeks to enhance the Nation's ability to rapidly mobilize and respond to specific public health emergencies, which may include infectious disease outbreaks, pandemics, and other public health emergencies that exceed the capacity of jurisdictional public health resources. From experience through previous emergency events, CDC recognizes the impact that initial funding and immediate response can have in mitigating negative health outcomes. Thus, CDC is creating this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to rapidly fund pre-approved applicants to address immediate and time-sensitive needs that are integral to specific public health responses.

In this study, the below ground effects of A. lancea on both fungal and bacterial communities in the peanut rhizosphere were investigated using pyrosequencing of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS1) and16S rRNA gene amplicons, respectively. Closed cultivation systems were constructed to investigate the role of volatiles and exudates originating from rhizomes and roots of A. lancea on fungal and bacterial communities. Intercropping with A. lancea significantly altered fungal community composition in the peanut rhizosphere, coinciding with decline of Fusarium root rot and improvement of peanut growth. Volatiles originating...
