Management of soils to facilitate plant beneficial microbial interactions requires basic knowledge of the species composition and microbial community structures in the plant rhizosphere. Here, we examined composition of bacterial communities associated with rhizosphere microsites located at the root tips and mature root zones of Lolium perenne when grown in(More)
Ice-binding proteins (IBPs), such as antifreeze proteins (AFPs) and ice-nucleating proteins (INPs), have been described in diverse cold-adapted organisms, and their potential applications in biotechnology have been recognized in various fields. Currently, both IBPs are being applied to biotechnological processes, primarily in medicine and the food industry.(More)
Despite the recognized interest in Antarctic bacteria, the relationship between bacteria and Antarctic plants has scarcely been studied. Studies have demonstrated that bacteria in the phyllosphere may contribute to plant growth, but their role in native plants, such as Antarctic vascular plants living in hostile environments, is still unknown. Here we(More)
