Plants are frequently affected by pathogen infections. To effectively defend against such infections, two major modes of innate immunity have evolved in plants; pathogen-associated molecular pattern-triggered immunity and effector-triggered immunity. Although the molecular components as well as the corresponding pathways involved in these two processes have been identified, many aspects of the molecular mechanisms of the plant immune system remain elusive. Recently, the rapid development of omics techniques (e.g., genomics, proteomics and transcriptomics) has provided a great opportunity to explore plant–pathogen interactions from a systems perspective and studies on protein–protein interactions (PPIs) between plants and pathogens have been carried out and characterized at the network level. In this review, we introduce experimental and computational identification methods of PPIs, popular PPI network analysis approaches, and existing bioinformatics resources/tools related to PPIs. Then, we focus on reviewing the progress in genome-wide PPI networks related to plant–pathogen interactions, including pathogen-centric PPI networks, plant-centric PPI networks and interspecies PPI networks between plants and pathogens. We anticipate genome-wide PPI network analysis will provide a clearer understanding of plant–pathogen interactions and will offer some new opportunities for crop protection and improvement.

Fig.1  Two major plant innate immune modes; pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP)-triggered immunity (PTI) and effector-triggered immunity (ETI). Pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) are plant proteins present on plasma membranes. Once PRRs sense PAMPs, PTI will be activated. To interfere with PTI, pathogens secrete effectors into plant cells. Nucleotide binding/leucine-rich-repeat (NB-LRR) proteins can recognize effectors to initiate ETI.
Fig.2  Introduction to pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP)-triggered immunity (PTI) network. (a) Each node represents a protein and each edge represents an interaction between two proteins; (b) date hubs exhibit low co-expression with their interacting partners (i.e., interact with partners at different time and/or space), while party hubs tend to highly co-express with their partners (i.e., co-expression at the same time and space); (c) a PPI network is divided into five modules, which are marked in different colors; (d) plant PPIs are shown using green edges, pathogen PPIs are shown using red edges, while plant–pathogen PPIs are shown using yellow edges.

Fig.3  Methodological overview of the integration of AraONE and plant immunity-related transcriptomics data. Using the PTI/ETI gene expression profiles and the integrated gene network (i.e., AraONE) as input, the NGF algorithm is used to train classification models for distinguishing different microarray data. Based on the trained classification models, key genes/interactions involved in the plant immune response can be inferred, which are further used to provide insights into the gene network organizations of PTI and ETI.
