Ecological diversification in the Bacillus cereus Group.
The Bacillus cereus Group comprises organisms that are widely distributed in the environment and are of health and economic interest. We demonstrate an 'ecotypic' structure of populations in the B.Expand

Legumes Symbioses: Absence of Nod Genes in Photosynthetic Bradyrhizobia
Leguminous plants (such as peas and soybeans) and rhizobial soil bacteria are symbiotic partners that communicate through molecular signaling pathways, resulting in the formation of nodules on legumeExpand

Molecular phylogeny of the genus Frankia and related genera and emendation of the family Frankiaceae.
The members of the actinomycete genus Frankia are nitrogen-fixing symbionts of may species of woody dicotyledonous plants belonging to eight families. Several strains isolated from diverseExpand

Azospirillum Genomes Reveal Transition of Bacteria from Aquatic to Terrestrial Environments
Fossil records indicate that life appeared in marine environments ∼3.5 billion years ago (Gyr) and transitioned to terrestrial ecosystems nearly 2.5 Gyr. Sequence analysis suggests thatExpand

Genome characteristics of facultatively symbiotic Frankia sp. strains reflect host range and host plant biogeography.
Soil bacteria that also form mutualistic symbioses in plants encounter two major levels of selection. One occurs during adaptation to and survival in soil, and the other occurs in concert with hostExpand

DNA relatedness among strains of Streptomyces pathogenic to potato in France: description of three new species, S. europaeiscabiei sp. nov. and S. stelliscabiei sp. nov. associated with common scab,
The genomic relatedness was evaluated by DNA-DNA hybridization for 23 strains (21 were pathogenic and two were saprophytic strains) isolated from lesions of common and netted scab in France and 19Expand

Isolation, partial characterization, and the effect of plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) on micro-propagated sugarcane in vitro
We report the isolation of nitrogen fixing, phytohormone producing bacteria from sugarcane and their beneficial effects on the growth of micropropagated sugarcane plantlets. Detection of the nitrogenExpand
