Molecular genetic and physiological analysis of Rhizobium-rice interactions

Perrine, Francine Manuella


Recently, it was found that strains of the soil bacterium Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar trifolii, which normally infect and nodulate clovers, can also associate and colonise different rice culutivars. When rice seedlings were inoculated with these rhizobia, there was a strain-specific response in the growth of the seedlings. This thesis examines the interaction of Rhizobium strains with rice. The following approaches were investigated to increase our understanding of the effects of Rhizobium...[Show more]
