Biotechnological tools for enhancing microbial solubilization of insoluble inorganic phosphates.

During recent years, many studies appeared on microbial solubilization of insoluble phosphates as an alternative of chemically based P-fertilizer production and bearing in mind the progressive increase in P-fertilizer prices based on high global P consumption and the scarcity of rock phosphate...

Molecular variability of Venezuelan isolates of entomopathogenic nematodes and their symbiont bacteria.

The aim of this study was to determine the molecular variability in a collection of Venezuelan isolates of entomopathogenic nematodes and their symbiont bacteria through the application of RAPD markers. The DNA of nematodes and bacteria were extracted by a modification of the method described by...
