Genetic diversity of rhizobia isolated from Astragalus adsurgens growing in different geographical regions of China.

The genetic diversity among 95 isolates from Astragalus adsurgens was investigated using molecular biological methods. All of the isolates and 24 reference strains could be differentiated by AFLP, REP-, ERIC- and BOX-PCR fingerprinting analysis. By cluster analysis of the data, 31 AFLP and 38 Rep-PCR genomic groups were delineated, indicating considerable… (More)
