Fagiolo_ITA didactic use of soil bacteria from nodules on leguminous plant roots


Hands-on activities enabling students to extract bacteria from nodules of leguminous plant roots, to grow them and infect roots of different leguminous plants.

This activity can be done in a multiphase project starting from the growing of soil bacteria  and free living nitrogen fixing bacteria using EIBE protocols
