Genetic diversity of bradyrhizobia in Thailand




The genetic diversity in bradyrhizobia isolated in Thailand was examined by restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis using nodulation genes as probes. The strains of mungbean bradyrhizobia were divided into three major clusters, and the strains of mungbean and soybean bradyrhizobia were divided into eight clusters. The Thai isolates were genetically different from the strains originating from the soils of temperate regions.
