Rhizobium-Legume Symbiosis.

Research Description

My research on the legume-rhizobium symbiosis focuses on how the plant regulates this interaction. I am to investigate the role of sanctioning in responding to poorly-performing rhizobial strains which fix low levels of nitrogen, and how plants regulate resource allocation to rhizobial partners of different nitrogen-fixing efficiencies.
