" Understanding the molecular basis for desiccation tolerance of rhizobia for improved survival on seed.. Survival of rhizobia can be poor and varies depending on the rhizobial strain and inoculant formulation... The project will engage with Professor Philip Poole, an expert in rhizobial molecular physiology at the John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK. Professor Poole will facilitate training of project personnel in established techniques for isolation of mRNA from rhizobia and subsequent micro-array analysis...
