SUMMARY: There is a correlation between the base composition of pure DNA from 35 strains of Rhizobium and their type of flagellation. There are two groups of Rhizobia. The peritrichously flagellated organisms, which usually grow fast, have a low % (guanine + cytosine) composition in the range 58·6–63·1%; these organisms occur in all cross-inoculation groups investigated. From a comparison with literature data it appears that this group is constituted by two subgroups: Rhizobium leguminosarum… CONTINUE READING
