  • Identifying the types and distributions of organic substrates that support microbial activities around plant roots is essential for a full understanding of plant–microbe interactions and rhizosphere ecology. We have constructed a strain of the soil bacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti containing a gfp gene fused to the melA promoter which is induced on exposure to galactose and galactosides. We used the fusion strain as a biosensor to determine that galactosides are released from the seeds of… CONTINUE READING
