During the symbiosis between the bacterium Rhizobium meliloti and plants such as alfalfa, the bacteria elicit the formation of nodules on the roots of host plants. The bacteria infect the nodule, enter the cytoplasm of plant cells and differentiate into a distinct cell type called a bacteroid, which is capable of fixing atmospheric nitrogen. To discover bacterial genes involved in the infection and differentiation stages of symbiosis, we obtained genes expressed at the appropriate time and… CONTINUE READING
