Partnership Sprouts Up to Use RNAi to Uncover Genetics Behind Legume Symbioses | GenomeWeb

Despite the global prevalence of legumes as crops, many questions about the underlying biology of the plants remain unanswered. Researchers from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, in collaboration with a scientist from the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research at Cornell, are looking to answer one of those questions — which genes are involved in the development of bacterial and fungal symbioses in legumes — using RNA interference.
