Wheat-root associated prokaryotic community: interplay between plant selection and location

Using 16S rRNA gene profiling, we investigated the effects of sample type, location, growth stage and variety on prokaryotic communities in the root endosphere and rhizosphere of wheat and bulk soil based on the field samples including 5 varieties from 4 locations along similar latitude with the distance about 157 to 800 km apart between any two locations

Scholarcy highlights

  • Root-associated microbiomes are important for plant nutrient uptake, disease suppression and plant growth
  • Using 16S rRNA gene profiling, we investigated the effects of sample type, location, growth stage and variety on prokaryotic communities in the root endosphere and rhizosphere of wheat and bulk soil based on the field samples including 5 varieties from 4 locations along similar latitude with the distance about 157 to 800 km apart between any two locations
  • Prokaryotic communities were more diverse in the bulk soil and rhizosphere than in root endosphere
  • We thank the colleagues in Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University for their help in field sampling
  • Engineering Research Center of Soil Remediation of Fujian Province University; College of Resources and Environment, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, Fuzhou, 350002, China
