The taxonomic position of isolates of a new genomic species (designated genomic species 2) obtained from several annual Medicago species and originating from different geographical locations was established through the results of phenotypic tests (including the results of auxanographic and biochemical tests and symbiotic properties) and 16S rRNA phylogenetic inferences. A comparison of the complete 16S rRNA sequence of a representative of genomic species 2 (strain A 321T [T = type strain]) with… CONTINUE READING
