Rhizobia are a diverse group of bacteria that engage in Symbioses with the roots of leguminous host plants. Once established as symbionts, these bacteria reduce dinitrogen to a form the plant can use for growth. Symbiotic bacteria contribute significantly to an ecologically-sound and cost-efficient nitrogen supply. Most rhizobia (order Rhizobiales) belong to families within the alphaproteobacteria subdivision.
The RhizoGATE portal was established as a single access site to genome and postgenome data of this group of bacteria to facilitate data management and access to information. It integrates a number of analysis Tools for synthetic biology and data repositories.
In depth information on the analysis tools and data repositories can be found on the Tools page.
