Analysis of microbial dynamics in the soybean root-associated environments from community to single-cell levels

Updated: Jul 10


Combining single-cell genomics and 16S rRNA sequencing has made it possible to predict what functions each microorganism has in a complex soil microbiome. In this study, the technique was used to understand the microorganisms that live around soybean roots and help plants grow.

The first author is Kifushi, a doctoral student and assistant at the Takeyama Laboratory, Graduate School of Advanced Science and Engineering, Waseda University.
