Mohamed Hijri – projects

Research projects Molecular Genetics, Genomics and Evolution of AMF Nuclear Genomes Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are asexual root-inhabiting symbionts organisms, and among the most common soil fungi. AMF form symbioses with the roots of approximately 80% of all vascular plant species. These fungi offer a variety of services, in particular, improved capacity for P uptake … Continue reading Mohamed Hijri – projects
