It is the aim of this chapter to present an overview of new, molecular tools that have been developed over recent years to study individual, single cells and composite, complex communities of microorganisms in the rhizosphere. We have carefully focused on culture-independent assays and selected methodologies that have already been or will soon be applicable for rhizosphere microbiology. Emphasis is placed on rhizosphere bacteria and the review first describes a number of the new methodologies… CONTINUE READING
