Title

Living Large: Elucidation of the Frankia EAN1pec Genome Sequence Shows Gene Expansion and Metabolic Versatility

Abstract

Frankia are nitrogen-fixing actinomycetes that form root nodules with dicotyledonous plants in eight families of distantly related angiosperms. The paucity of genetic information stemming from the absence of standard genetic tools has been a major obstacle in our understanding of actinorhizal symbiosis. Although we are trying to resolve this situation by developing genetic tools, we have also pursued new genomic approaches.
