Rhizobia are a group of bacteria that form nodules on the roots of legume host plants. The sequenced genomes of the rhizobia are characterized by the presence of many putative insertion sequences (IS) elements. However, it is unknown whether these IS elements are functional and it is therefore relevant to assess their transposition activity. In this work, several functional insertion sequences belonging to the IS1256, IS3, IS5, IS166, and IS21 families were captured from Rhizobium tropici… CONTINUE READING
