Work package 2

Analysis of gene expression in FZB42 by DNA-microarray, Real-time PCR and 2-D gel electrophoresis in dependence of plant-bacterium interactions (e.g. effect of plant root exudates, plant extract, soil extract, minimal medium). The final goal of the approaches described in WPs 1, and 2 is to identify and to deliver basic sequences of genes important for plant growth promotion and biocontrol.
