Diversity and distribution of soybean-nodulating bradyrhizobia isolated from major soybean-growing regions in Myanmar

Rhizobia play an important role in plant nutrition by fixing nitrogen that is subsequently available for uptake by plants. In Myanmar, it has been difficult to characterize the nitrogen-fixing indigenous bradyrhizobia strains. In this study, 120 strains were isolated from five major soybean-growing regions of Myanmar. The strains were characterized based on sequence analysis of the 16S-23S rRNA internal transcribed...

Antimicrobial resistance of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli isolated from chickens in a diagnostic laboratory

The aim of this study was to determine the resistance profile of 24 Campylobacter jejuni and 16 Campylobacter coli isolates from chickens in a diagnostic laboratory in Nigeria. Susceptibility testing was done by a broth microdilution MIC method with MICRONAUT – S anaerob test plates (Merlin Diagnostika, GmbH, Germany). MIC assay was performed according to CLSI (formally NCCLS) methods. Resistance to ciprofloxacin...
