Agrobacterium or Rhizobium, which name to use?

Agrobacterium or Rhizobium, which name to use? | out of the box | Scoop.it

Introduction

Agrobacterium is a well-known genus in bacteriology and molecular biology, but research has shown that it cannot easily be separated from the Rhizobium genus, thus all Agrobacterium species should be renamed as Rhizobium species (the earlier name). However there has been some opposition to renaming Agrobacterium, in this article I explain the research and taxonomy, and suggest a solution.
