Congress summary: the organismal perspective

  • Wolfgang D. Bauer


This report is intended to summarize several of the major advances presented at the Knoxville meeting and to provide context and implications for readers out of their specialty. The primary focus here will be findings related to establishment of the Rhizobium symbiosis. A range of special advances in this area justify such a focus. Readers should consult the accompanying article by Professor Burris for a summary of advances in areas where I have no useful expertise.
