The rapid growth of the world’s population demands an increase in food production that no longer can be reached by increasing amounts of nitrogenous fertilizers. Plant growth promoting bacteria (PGPB) might be an alternative to increase nitrogenous use efficiency (NUE) in important crops such wheat. Azospirillum brasilense is one of the most promising PGPB(More)
Diazotrophic species in the genus Herbaspirillum (e.g. H. frisingense, H. rubrisubalbicans and H. seropedicae) associate with several economically important crops in the family Poaceae, such as maize (Zea mays), Miscanthus, rice (Oryza sativa), sorghum (Sorghum bicolor) and sugarcane (Saccharum sp.), and can increase their growth and productivity by a(More)
Herbaspirillum seropedicae is a diazotrophic bacterium which associates endophytically with economically important gramineae. Flavonoids such as naringenin have been shown to have an effect on the interaction between H. seropedicae and its host plants. We used a high-throughput sequencing based method (RNA-Seq) to access the influence of naringenin on the(More)
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the primary source of carbohydrate for the majority of the World's population. Herbaspirillum seropedicae is a diazotroph that lives within and on the surface of rice roots. It can promote the growth of rice, partly by supplying it with fixed nitrogen. To better understand the rice–H. seropedicae interaction, cDNA libraries from(More)
