Discovery of Novel Plant Interaction Determinants from the Genomes of 163 Root Nodule Bacteria

Root nodule bacteria (RNB) or "rhizobia" are a type of plant growth promoting bacteria, typified by their ability to fix nitrogen for their plant host, fixing nearly 65% of the nitrogen currently utilized in sustainable agricultural production of legume crops and pastures. In this study, we sequenced the genomes of 110 RNB from diverse hosts and… CONTINUE READING
