Pseudomonas isolates from the C. elegans microbiome inhibit fungal growth. a In vitro effect of three Pseudomonas isolates (relative to E. coli OP50) on growth of six selected fungi, isolated from natural Caenorhabditis samples, after 3 days (n = 3, statistics in Table S1-23 and raw data in Additional file 1: Table S1-22). Each fungus is indicated by a different colour. b Effect of the Pseudomonas isolate MY11b on C. elegans mortality induced by the fungal pathogen Drechmeria coniospora (n = 6, statistics in Table S1-25 and raw data in Additional file 1: Table S1-24). Worms were either grown on Pseudomonas MY11b or E. coli (indicated on X axis) and then exposed to the fungal pathogen either in the presence of Pseudomonas MY11b or E. coli (given by the two panels)
