Chapter
The biotechnological importance at industrial levels is increasing everyday. By combining the ability of residual materials or responsible exploitation of biomass with biotechnological means, the overall process becomes safer and envirnomentally friendly. There is an extensive array of compounds of natural origin, which have been attributed with se...

Bacteria of the genus Azospirillum colonize roots of important cereals and grasses, and promote plant growth by several mechanisms, notably phytohormone synthesis. The genomes of several Azospirillum strains belonging to different species, isolated from various host plants and locations, were recently sequenced and published. In this study, an addi...

The plant growth-promoting proteobacterium Azospirillum brasilense enhances growth of many economically important crops, such as wheat, maize, and rice. The sequencing and annotation of the 1.59-Mbp replicon of A. brasilense CBG497, a strain isolated from a maize rhizosphere grown on an alkaline soil in the northeast of Mexico, revealed a GC conten...

Twenty three selected, culturable, Frankia strains belonging to different geographical origins and host-specificity groups were clustered on the basis of their AFLP patterns. A significant diversity was found among strains. The majority of strains studied corresponding to the three host-specificity groups Alnus, Casuarina and Elaeagnus (Frankia clu...
