Testing the Effect of UV Radiation on the Survival of Burkholderia glumae
Authors:  Hari Sharan Karki and Jong Hyun Ham, date: 03/05/2016, view: 4601, Q&A: 0
Burkholderia glumae (B. glumae) is becoming a serious threat in the major rice producing areas of the world. It was reported that Burkholderia spp., including B. glumae, are adapted to a wide range of ecological ...
