Model denitrifiers convert NO3- to N2 , but it appears that a significant fraction of natural populations are truncated, conducting only one or two steps of the pathway. To better understand the diversity of partial denitrifiers in soil and whether discrepancies arise between the presence of known N-oxide reductase genes and phenotypic features, bacteria… CONTINUE READING
