Burkholderia tuberum STM678T was isolated from a South African legume, but did not renodulate this plant. Until a reliable host is found, studies on this and other interesting beta-rhizobia cannot advance. We investigated B. tuberum STM678T’s ability to induce Fix+ nodules on a small-seeded, easy-to-propagate legume (Macroptilium atropurpureum). Previous(More)
The prevalence of transmitted HIV drug resistance (TDR) in Los Angeles County remains unknown, due in part to the absence of reliable genotypic data.
