Workshop summary: Compilation of the nod, fix, and nif genes of Rhizobia and information concerning their function

  • Gary Stacey

Abstract

As a means of summarizing the Workshop on the Biochemical Function of the nod, nif, and fix Genes, I have simply listed all of the identified genes below with a few lines describing the information available concerning their function. I apologize to those individuals whose papers I have failed to reference due to a limitation on space.
