Crop improvement is a multifaceted micro-evolutionary process, involving changes in breeding approaches, planting configurations and consumption preferences of human beings. Recent research has started to identify the specific genes or genomic regions correlate to improved agronomic traits, however, an apparent blank between the genetic structure of crop(More)
Smut disease is a severe limiting factor in foxtail millet production, caused by the Ustilago crameri fungus. The aim of this study is to characterize specific bacterial populations that might contribute to smut disease suppression. Rhizosphere bacterial community compositions of three foxtail millet cultivars differing in smut disease resistance were(More)
