Scholarcy highlights

  • Actinorhizal plants are well-known for their symbiotic association with the actinobacteria Frankia
  • Little is known about their association with other diverse non-Frankia actinobacteria
  • These bacteria are found within same microniche as Frankia, and have attracted interest in regard to their ecophysiological roles in these environments
  • Most of these actinobacteria isolated from actinorhizal plants are classified as members of the Streptomyces, Micromonospora, Nocardia, and Actinoplanes genera
  • Initial analysis of the first two genome sequences available indicates differences in their genome plasticity and genetic content reflecting genome stability variation between the two genomes
