One of the key factors limiting the proper assessment and use of rhizobial strains in the field is the lack of suitable methodology to screen the success of individual isolates in competing for nodule occupancy with different cultivars of legumes and in different soil and agronomic conditions. The use of marker genes enables individual rhizobial strains to be identified by a simple colour assay, thus enabling a dramatic increase in throughput of strain screening. One such marker system for… CONTINUE READING
