The rhizosphere is considered one of the most dynamic interfaces of the world, constituting a hot spot of microbial activity. The rhizosphere microbiome plays a key role in the functioning of plant, influencing its physiology and development. Although the importance of rhizosphere microbioma for plant growth has been widely known, for the vast majority of rhizosphere microorganisms ther...
The Amazon rainforest is the world's largest reservoir of plant and animal diversity, and it has been subjected to especially high rates of land use conversion by agriculture and pasture. Areas of native forest are cleared through slash-and-burn before being converted to their use. This expansion is driven by growing demand for soybeans, primarily by the Asian market recently incorporat...
Here, we present a plan for an abroad research internship, which is complementary to the ongoing postdoctoral project (FAPESP 2014/03217-3). For this internship we propose two main activities, first, use the bioinformatics platform and know-how from the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO) to analyze the data generated in our experiments conducted in Brazil, and second, we propose an...
