Abstract: The seminar will deal with the creation of the MEDITERRANEAN PLANT ENDOPHYTE AND PATHOGENS CULTURE COLLECTION (MEPP) at the IBBR UOS of Palermo, which currently includes about 350 strains of culturable microorganisms. The MEPP strains are mainly isolated from Mediterranean agri-food systems as well as from spontaneous perennial and herbaceous plants, including various microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts and fungi) of agri-food importance and/or with pathological behavior. Microorganisms derive from different geographical areas of the Mediterranean, including strains from collections of other research centers or universities as well. The research lines involving the MEPP and the main results obtained will be presented
