Description: This presentation discusses research on searching for the genes that encode nodulation symbiosis between medicago truncatula and rhizobia. Rhizobia are a group of bacteria that interact with legumes to produce ammonia. They receive glucose and fix nitrogen for the plant so the plant is able to create the amino acids and Nucleic acids required for growth. This presentation explains the research and the physical mapping, cross over events in propogation, and genetic mapping.
